Taking a cue from the title of an album by the Quails put out on Mr. Lady records in 2003, THE SONG IS LOVE is a month-long residency at the De Young Museum which presents a series of projects that affirm the transformative power of art and collaboration to generate empathy and the sublime in times of political disaster. From October 31 to December 3, 2017, Wolff’s studio will be set up as an intimate space within the museum, where new work will be developed in drawing, collage and fabric, along with multiple collaborations with fellow artists, musicians, designers, craftspeople and the public. THE SONG IS LOVE upholds the power of collective creative activity as an essential wave of resistance at this critical time in the history of the United States -a power is capable of turning the tide away from hate, toward wider affirmative forces of love, imagination and inclusivity.
As part of the residency, Wolff's project FUTURE CHORUS, will perform songs for the political moment at the museum Saturday., December 2nd at 2pm. Chorus members and music advisors include, Cedre Csillagi, Jaime Knight, Koralie Hill, Rumi Koshino, Erica Horowitz, Colter Jacobson, Gee Hahn, Terri Loewenthal, Ivy Jeanne McClelland, Miwazu Misquitta, Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs, Claire Plumb, Corinna Press, Laurian Rhodes, Will Schwartz, Amy Rathbone, Sarah Simon, Kate Sweeney, Boff Whaley & more.
