2017 IN ART

Season 7: Year in Review

Part 4 of 4. For a short review of our whole season, please click here.

From the Back Gallery to the Basilica rafters, every space in our industrial factory was filled with art this season. A striking wind-powered steel structure was installed on the Basilica grounds, set against the magnificent backdrop of the Catskill mountains. Artists brought sculpture, zine wallpaper, portraits, performance art and protest signs to Basilica SoundScape, and helped us raise flags and funds for art and freaks at (FREAK) FLAG DAY.

Hudson’s artistic talents joined us for Basilica Farm & Flea at the Basilica Art Shop, while Jimbo’s Airbrush Hut brought a taste of the Jersey boardwalk to Hudson. Our river city’s thriving emerging artist community was also on display in our Back Gallery, with a Bright Future Group Show, photorealist portraits, feminine sensuality, Tragic Instants and musings on truth and fiction in the current political landscape. Our dancer-in-residence returned with a mesmerizing performance for three dancers staged across one spectacular weekend.

2017 IN MUSIC

Season 7: Year in Review

Part 3 of 4. For a short review of our whole season, please click here.

With Basilica SoundScape and 24-HOUR DRONE, the two annual music festivals at the heart of our large-scale rituals, we welcomed revolutionary voices from across the musical spectrum, from sitarists to suspended guitars and gripping political poetry to heart-wrenching neo-gospel.

Elsewhere, we DRONED with international satellite events in Canada, Sweden, the Netherlands and the UK, and united global instrumentation to fill a warm afternoon with fully improvised chance collaborations. An evening of chamber music provided a night unlike anything else in the Basilica Hudson calendar, and The National brought friends from near and far to raise funds for Basilica’s mission to foster sustainable community.

2017 IN FOOD + COMMUNITY

Season 7: Year in Review

Part 2 of 4. For a short review of our whole season, please click here.

Collaborative partners played a vital role in expanding our Basilica community in our seventh season. Environmental advocates and green companies were among the voices heard this past year, while the farm-fresh and local produce of independent farmers was at the heart of the nourishing food on offer. Thoughtful, experimental voices closed out Basilica SoundScape, while our community radio station broadcast 24-HOUR DRONE to devotees of sound across the airwaves. Plus explosive fireworks and fiery freaks communed to raise flags and funds for art, ritual and exchange.

2017 IN FILM & MEDIA

Season Seven: Year In Review

Part 1 of 4. For a short review of our whole season, please click here.

From documentaries to video installations, film is at the core of Basilica Hudson. We book-ended our 2017 season with a series examining the environmental threats to the Hudson River, as Jon Bowermaster’s Hudson River Stories gave us the opportunity to learn about how we can better serve our region and environment. 2017 continued our Non-Fiction Screening Series, with our trusted collaborator with Chris Boekmann of True/False film festival, which gave us illuminating and vital documentaries that informed us on diverse national and global issues. From Sabaah Folayan’s examination of the tireless activists born of the Ferguson uprising in Whose Streets? to Jonathan Demme’s tale of his revolutionary Cousin Bobby. A number of visiting directors joined us to discuss their work, including new Hudson resident Theo Anthony, creator of acclaimed documentary RAT FILM.

Media and new technologies also brought color and light across our programs, from psychic tour vans and vast video installations to outsider artists, a roaming studio-on-wheels, and technological innovators.

2017 YEAR IN REVIEW

Basilica Hudson welcomed people of all walks of life and art to our industrial factory in 2017, with film, music, conversations, visual art and performance fueling a season of experimentation, ritual and exchange. We are committed to offering a platform for independent voices, and cultural and environmental sustainability anchors our program.

In 2018, with your help, we can do more, and we will do more.

In the meantime, THANK YOU to every single person who stepped through our doors. You were part of reclaiming and transforming this historic place of industry into a communal place of exchange.
