Conceptual artist Danh Vō collaborates with Xiu Xiu (Jamie Stewart, Shayna Dunkelman, and Ches Smith) for this gallery exhibition conceived as a stage for their work’s own production. Vō travels with two gold pounders from Thailand—where the gold leaf for many of his pieces is made—to work in the space alongside Xiu Xiu's percussion-based compositions. Together they will generate syncopated compositions with the pounders’ rhythms. Set against a backdrop of Vō’s finished artwork, they will create a new work in real time. Curated by Tim Griffin with Lumi Tan
