Dia Art Foundation Presents a Series of Outdoor Events at the Hispanic Society of America's Audubon Terrace

NEW YORK, NY.- On selected Tuesday evenings in June and July, Dia will present an outdoor series of diverse programs devised specifically for the Hispanic Society of America's Audubon Terrace at Broadway between 155th and 156th streets, New York City. By subway take number 1 train to 157th and Broadway. Admission is free. Reservations are recommended 212 293 5582 or

On Tuesday, June 16, 2009, at 8:30 pm, the video program Lessons in the Sky: A Filmic Tribute to Audubon will be screened. This program is organized by Andrea Grover, founder of Aurora Picture Show. John James Audubon's New York farm, Minniesland, once occupied 40 wilderness acres of what is now the Washington Heights Neighborhood in Upper Manhattan. This cinematic tribute to the universal pastime of bird watching is a nod to the farmland that once comprised this region, Audubon's life work with birds, and the timeless current of artists' studies of wildlife. This screening will showcase artist-made short films and videos on birds and natural history in a variety of genres including performance, documentary, experimental, animation, audio works, and found footage. Includes works by Simone Bennett, Klara Hobza, Nina Katchadourian Emily Kuehn, Julia Oldham, and Dana Sherwood, among others.

On Tuesday, June 30, 2009, at 7pm, Eileen Myles will present The Collection of Silence, a baroque site-specific work around the possibilities of silence as central to the syntax and punctuation of everyday life. A diverse group of poets will present short pieces at various locations on the outdoor plaza of Audubon Terrace, where they will be joined by a group of students from PS4. Also accompanied by dancers, Buddhists, an opera singer, and a life drawing class, this mute and active gathering will demonstrate and celebrate the collective power of silence and the capacity of an unvoiced poem to serve the communal purposes of public life. Participants include poets Charles Bernstein, Stephanie Gray, Tim Liu, Monica De la Torre, and Rachel Zolf, Christine Hou, and Julie Patton, dancer-choreographer Christine Elmo, The Village Zendo, and soprano Juliana Snapper. The silent texts will be available in a bilingual edition at the performance.

On Tuesday, July 14, 2009, at 7:30 pm, Sonic Episodes: An Evening of Audio Works will be presented. This final event in the series presents a program of audio works that narrate visual experiences through the medium of sound. The program will include a wide range of artists and feature a new work by Ulrike Müller.
