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.

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.”
