More than forty years after Arto Lindsay screeched onto the New York underground scene with his band DNA—and later appeared at The Kitchen with Ambitious Lovers—his artistry remains radical. A longtime fan of contradictory pairings, Lindsay creates frenetic performances that oscillate from extreme “noise” improvisations to soft and slyly seductive Portuguese crooning. Arto Lindsay 4D takes its title from a theory of Marcel Duchamp that Lindsay quotes onscreen: “There exist three dimensions, but the artist operates in the fourth dimension.” Tracing the musician across Japan, Brazil, Italy, and the United States, the film captures this elusive dimension as navigated by a living legend of the avant-garde. Director André Lavaquial will introduce.
