Dublab x FEMMEBIT Present: The Art of Performance – W/ Nailah Hunter and Anna Luisa Petrisko. Nailah Hunter is a Caribbean American experimental composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles.

Anna Luisa Petrisko is an interdisciplinary artist in Los Angeles. Her mediums include experimental opera, analog video art, sound design, textiles and sculpture. Her recent project is a sci-fi opera and collaborative multimedia VR installation VIBRATION GROUP.

Anna Luisa has worked with many artist-led and non-profit organizations in LA including Coaxial Arts Foundation, Femmebit, Dublab, Los Angeles Performance Practice, LACE, CultureHub, SASSAS, Mutant Salon, Human Resources, KNOWLEDGES, Echo Park Film Center, Pilipino Worker’s Center, and the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. She teaches Video Art and Sound Design at California State University San Marcos. http://annaluisapetrisko.com The performances aim to create a physical and conceptual space that enriches and promotes the practice of Los Angeles musicians and visual artists. Funding from this grant, has enabled both organizations to pair six visual artists with six musicians to create 6 new collaborative audiovisual performances. Each performance consists of an original, A/V set. The performance will be broadcast on Dublab’s webstream this Saturday 19th at 4pm. This grant received from mediaThe foundation inc, supports DUBLAB and FEMMEBIT’s shared aim to promote and support our community of LA-based filmmakers, musicians, animators, and creative coders. The project’s all-female roster also aligns with FEMMEBIT’s mission to create a platform for female-identifying artists working in video and new media. By providing diverse talent from DUBLAB and FEMMEBIT’s communities with technical resources, physical space, and a wide-reaching web platform, The Art of Performance provides a unique opportunity for the dynamic, synesthetic aspects of live audiovisual performance to flourish and be shared with an audience now and for years to come.
