SAN JOSE, California (November 4, 2016)– The San Jose Museum of Art’s after-hours series “ArtRage” returns on Thursday, November 17, 2016 from 7 PM to 10 PM.  ArtRage will feature a live performance from artist Evan Holm. In Holm’s performance piece Submerged Turntables, he plays vinyl records in an art installation in which the turntables are underwater. Holm will be accompanied by experimental electronic violinist Pauchi Sasaki. With Holm’s sounds setting the mood for the evening, ArtRage attendees are invited to enjoy a specialty cocktail with seasonal ingredients (no-host bar), a DIY Art project for adults inspired by the exhibitions on view, and other creative fun. Admission is $5. Tickets are available online at /event/artrage-11-2016

Evan Holm is a sculptor and artist from Oakland, California. About Submerged Turntables, he says “tone, melody and ultimately song is pulled back out of the pool, past the veil of the subconscious, out from under the crush of time, and back into a living and breathing realm.”  Holm’s related work Watertable (an audio tape player submerged in a 22-foot long table of water) is on view in the current exhibition Indestructible Wonder at SJMA. 

Pauchi Sasaki is a composer, performer and improviser whose work focuses on real-time, interactive music and self-designed instruments. She has performed internationally in Peru, the United States, Japan, Chile, Colombia, and Switzerland. Her compositions involve acoustic, amplified, and electronic instrumentation. Sasaki has scored more than 30 feature and short film. Her numerous awards include the Paul Merritt Henry Prize in the musical composition of stringed instruments (2014).

  • Beauty – Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial, on view for the first time on the West Coast. The exhibition comprises 280 works by fifty-seven international, cutting-edge designers from twenty-seven countries;
