In the course of the evening, concertgoers will experience an entirely immersive audio-visual environment, which utilizes eight-channel surround sound, and panoramic video projection mapped to all walls and surfaces within La Esquina Gallery. Embedded within this environment, commissioned collaborative works by Kansas City composers and visual artists will be presented side by side with those submitted to a national call for works. The following artists will also be featured during KCPMF: Cody Kauhl, Colin Patrick Mosely, David James Witter, Dwight Frizzell, Jeremy Tittle, Lisa Marie Evans, Michael Eaton, Paul Rudy, Sebastian Sanchez-Piotrowski, Seth Davis, Leigh Kaulbach, and Keith Kirchoff. Artists represented in the festival were considered from a pool of applicants who had to consider the material and and discursive practices of Object-Oriented Ontology, specifically it’s subsets: Alien phenomenology, Agential Realism, and Posthumanism. Object-Oriented Ontology is a philosophy that maintains objects exist independently of human perception and are not ontologically exhausted by their relations with humans or other objects.

Found Installations is a video art collection of Leralee Whittle's time-based processes in rural and city spaces transformed through her collaboration with the spaces. Whittle occupy public and private domaines such as parks, gyms, natural habitats or unique buildings. The visually rich spaces typically serve communities for non-arts related activities, yet inspire Leralee to engage in body-based practices anywhere from hours to months (intermittently). The artist illuminate's the choreographic design of each generative process with postproduction editing to clearly define aesthetics of social practice, dance or visual art.
Leralee Whittle will enact a four-hour durational performance in which she occupies Broadway and “embody the space.” Whittle will occupy the stage amidst installed videos to investigate materiality in dance, minimalist body-based installation performance and new dance emerging through choreographic structures and interaction with video, things and people in the space.The performance will take place on Friday night of November 9, 2018 at Charlotte Street Foundation's new performance arts venue, Capsule (1664 Broadway Blvd, KCMO). Ticket information will be available soon.
