Basilica Hudson is honored to host Kris Perry’s large-scale, wind-powered sculpture Revolution for our 2017 season.

Just in time for the start of our 7th season, our friend, neighbor and frequent collaborator, sculptor / metal worker Kris Perry has installed a monumental kinetic sculpture, Revolution, on the southwest corner of the Basilica grounds. We are honored to host this work, a large-scale wind-powered steel behemoth. Check it out, especially at sunset, when its dramatic silhouette is framed by the brilliant Hudson River sky.

“It was a wild, exhilarating place to read my work. I would’ve expected it to be hard to get a music audience to focus on words but it was all pure energy, the space great and flowing, the overlap of that act to mine and the next created this really unique attention to sound that I was so glad to be a part of.”

“This was my first time at Basilica, and I’ll definitely be coming next year!
The space is amazing and worked perfectly for this genre. I had never heard of many of these groups, and I’m so glad that Basilica Soundscape is where I saw/heard them first. It was run so efficiently and I found myself wishing it would just go on and on. Having this event in Hudson makes me fall in love with Hudson all over again, too. We walked up and down Warren Street before the event began and visited many wonderful and surprising shops.”

Basilica Hudson is proud to present our 2017 thematic Back Gallery artist in residency program, which explores the location as muse. Creating the work in Hudson and at Basilica suggests that the eclectic present and past of this river city is central to inspiration.

Back Gallery Openings are a culmination of artist(s) spending some time in the space, experiencing the place and then opening it up to the public.
