SOLAR SYSTEM WALK, VOL. 1
Saturday, June 14
Solar System Walk, Vol. 1 is a guided, 1.5 hour tour of Chris Burden’s Scale Model of the Solar System conducted by Emmy Catedral's AASV/The Amateur Astronomers Society of Voorhees. This tour will be led by artist Nate Carey, with Gustav Holst-inspired interplanetary travel sounds by Jane Carver. The tour begins with Pluto at Leo’s Latticini, and will go towards the center of the system, following the gravitational pull of our star. The sun will be in the museum, which will be housing some various other worlds.
This is the first of three tours organized by AASV taking place throughout the run of the exhibition. The second and third tours will be led by educator, PJ Gubatina Policarpio, Astrophysicist Dr. Emily L. Rice, and friends of Astronomy on Tap, dates TBA.
For more information and to RSVP (free, but spots are limited) please email:firstname.lastname@example.org.
AASV/The Amateur Astronomers Society of Voorhees began in 2012 as a series of salons in the eponymous building in Hell’s Kitchen. Founded and directed by Emmy Catedral, the Society has hosted events featuring guest artists, historians, scientists, collectors, storytellers that reflect on the order and ordering of the universe.
Nate Carey is a Brooklyn/Earth based artist working primarily in sculpture and performance. Inspired by the ways that physical laws function at extreme scales, Carey would like to realize projects in the subatomic and supermassive realms. Until then, he employs the use of thought experiments and objects at hand.
Jane Carver is the artist-in-residence at The Association for Cultural Equity: The Alan Lomax Archive and co-founder of the performance series Low Stakes at Hunter College. She sings with the Bulgarian women’s choir, Yasna Voices and lives in Brooklyn.
About the Exhibition:
Bringing the World into the World is about the experience of the act of seeing, and is inspired by the largest object in the Museum’s collection, the Panorama of the City of New York, a 9,355sq.ft. scale model of the New York City’s five boroughs. Recapturing the lure and the wide-eyed amazement triggered by this historical artifact, Bringing the World revisits the panoramas—the 18th Century crowd-pleasing spectacle of 360-degree circular paintings—and their concepts and roles in the development of visual culture. The exhibition features a diverse body of works exploring the formal, conceptual, and psychological principles of panoramas as devices of wonder and the many ways in which we see, imagine, and comprehend worlds both familiar and unfamiliar.
