Time & Location
About the Event
IG Residency, Tuesdays, 7-8pm CST
Livestream on Last Tuesday of the Month
$50 for live performance (includes private access to Garden and drinks)
UAD: Studio Sessions is a month-long digital residency for Austin area musicians to connect with the UMLAUF Sculpture Garden+Museum as a site for creative inspiration. A balance of interviews from Austin musicians, a live performance, and guided interpretation from Curator Katie Edwards, UAD: Studio Sessions merges the visual and aural arts to provide new perspectives on Charles Umlauf and his role in Austin's arts community, both in the past and present.
Each month, UMLAUF will partner with an Austin musician or group to foster a dialogue between contemporary local performers and the history of the UMLAUF site. Through IGTV interviews and video, we’ll collaborate to examine creative culture and bring insight into the personal life of Charles Umlauf, our artistic processes as a community, and our connection to Austin as lifelong residents, return visitors, or transplants.
On the last Tuesday of the month at 7pm the residency culminates in Studio Sessions, an intimate performance and livestream that pairs dynamic sounds from our resident artist with guided interpretation into UMLAUF works and spaces rarely on view to the public.
In featuring live music from a diverse group of genres and communities, as well as rarely seen work explored by our UMLAUF staff, we hope to invite our patrons to better imagine themselves as part of Austin’s cultural capital, and to connect to creativity even during times of closure or isolation.
