Undercurrent: Music, Art, Action
Undercurrent is a new event that immerses visitors in over 11 original audiovisual art installations, created by influential musicians to inspire positive impact around the Climate Crisis. Undercurrent features 60,000 square feet of original audiovisual art installations, music, and much more.
Right on the border of Bushwick and Williamsburg, immerse yourself in creative reactions to the Climate Crisis from some of the most influential musicians and creators of the moment. Enjoy sustainably sourced farm-to-cocktail beverages, peruse a curated collection of sustainable wares, and connect with climate action causes that inspire via our nonprofit partners.
Undercurrent brings together over 40 musicians, artists, creatives, and nonprofits, including Bon Iver, Grimes, Jorja Smith, Khruangbin, Miguel, The 1975, Actress, Aluna, Jayda G, Mount Kimbie, and Nosaj Thing to present their reactions to the Climate Crisis through new interactive multimedia installations.
Grimes shared her thoughts on joining the event, saying in a public statement that will accompany her artwork,
“If we don’t protect the environment the future of consciousness will be artificial, not biological. Would mental health and wellness even be relevant in a world where emotions aren’t an evolutionary advantage? AI meditations were created by a generative language program that was provided with meditations made by humans and, based off of those models, created its own meditations without the guiding aid of human emotion. Personally, I find beauty in this work, but it represents a distinct artistic shift from things written by humans.”
Bon Iver also made a public statement for the event, stating,
“[I] just want somebody to walk out changed and to be thinking about things outside of the normal concepts that they’re usually worried about. We want them to walk out having a wider perspective on the meaning of life and what we can leave behind.”
