• Ragnar Kjartansson: The Visitors – Need to fill the void of live music? We know something that may help. Book a ticket online to visit the ICA and see this truly beautiful installation: A sentimental portrayal of friendship, love, and loss, The Visitors is a monumental, nine-channel sound and video installation of a performance staged at Rokeby Farm, a historic 43-room estate in upstate New York. Each of the individual audio and video channels features musicians playing instruments either alone or in groups, isolated yet in unison, occupying different rooms of the romantically dilapidated estate. The musical composition coheres in the work’s installation, presenting a dynamic and moving ensemble performance Kjartansson refers to as a “feminine nihilistic gospel song.” Through its unique arrangement of music in space, The Visitors creates a layered portrait of the house and its musical inhabitants.
• Gluten Free Cooking – Stop spending a fortune in the gluten-free aisle at the grocery store! Entrees, side dishes, snacks and baked goods—you name it, we’ll cover it. In addition to cooking some yummy gluten free dishes, we’ll talk about resources, options, what labels say (and don’t say) and recipe substitutions. In this interactive online class, we’ll learn how to make traditional Brazilian cheese bread, citrusy salad with orange, cranberries, Dijon vinaigrette and spiced toasted almonds, crispy “breaded” baked chicken tenders, fresh lemon risotto, and brownie. You are welcome to cook along or just watch and learn.
