Dark Hand and Lamplight: Shary Boyle & Doug Paisley

Wednesday May 7, 2008 8:00 PM This is a past program
Toronto-based artist Shary Boyle formed Dark Hand and Lamplight when invited on a California tour with Will Oldham in October, 2006. This collaborative performance features Boyle creating live drawings and animating pre-drawn images on an overhead projector while musician Doug Paisley sings and plays guitar. Choreographed to the lyrics and music, artworks are projected onto a screen, the wall, and other available surfaces, crafting an explosive audio-visual experience of melancholic euphoria. 


Public programs are made possible, in part, by major gifts from the Annenberg Foundation, and Ann and Jerry Moss. Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
