Karaoke (Art)

Davis Freeman

Karaoke(ART) is a unique event where new readings resonate from a collision of the contemporary art aesthetic with the karaoke phenomenon. Over the past year Random Scream has invited 15 internationally acclaimed artists to create his or her own video for a popular karaoke song. Each artist was given a selection of songs to choose from and as- ked to use their own personal style to reflect on what it’s like to live in the world today with the Karaoke song as their conduit. The participating artists were free to create whatever video they desired as long as it clearly embedded the karaoke music and words. The only performers this evening will be you, the audience, as someone choosing a song to sing can only activate the artwork. Enjoy.
