Brittany Bailey & Brian Allen Simon
Produced in collaboration with Assortment
Brittany Bailey's work is defined as sculptural. She works to create formations and spaces with her body involving high contrast. Intrigued by Einstein’s space-time continuum, and interested in the notion of alignment and duration, she strives to create shapes that get lost in time and extend space. With Brittany’s slow, intricate and precise movements, fueled by breath, she elucidates awareness. The very elements of time; movement, mass, and consciousness, define her work.
Her performances induce a new awareness of perception.
Brittany has performed and worked with acclaimed artists such as Marina Abramovic at the MOMA NY, Michael Clark at the TATE modern in London, Genesis Breyer-Porridge at MOMA’s PS.1 museum, Mark Fell at EMPAC, and Christopher Knowles at the Performing Garage, NY. Originally a trained ballet dancer, Brittany studied and worked with the late Merce Cunningham for 4 years.
She is currently working with Robert Wilson on a piece to be performed in Paris.
Her own choreographed works and performances have been shown at spaces internationally such as The Kennedy Center, Judson Church, Pioneer Works, The Watermill Center, MUDAM Luxembourg, Musées Royaux des Beaux Arts de Belgique in Brussels, and Art Basel, Miami.
Brian Allen Simon is an artist and the founder of the Non Projects record label. Constantly shedding the non-essential in search of a deep and individualized core, Brian’s music feels potent and refined, yet still raw. An experimental artist using contemporary tools, Brian mines the intersection of electronics, jazz, improvisation and spiritual atmospherics. He is a native of Los Angeles.
Simon has performed internationally throughout Japan, Europe and North America, sharing the stage with the likes of Morton Subotnick, Julia Holter, Laurel Halo and many more. He is a distinguished entrant of the 2011 Red Bull Music Academy and has guest lectured at CalArts. He is currently a co-organizer of Monument, a series of ambient music performances at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. Alongside multiple LP’s and EP’s released on Non Projects, Simon has also released music on Friends of Friends, Ghostly International, Innovative Leisure and Brownswood, all to critical acclaim.
