“CATCH is a crash course in what performance looks like today.” – ARTFORUM

CATCH — “everyone’s favorite” Brooklyn-based, hydra-headed, multi-disciplinary, rough-and-ready series of performance events — forges back upriver to reconquer Basilica Hudson on July 10, 2016 at 6pm. After a standing room only crowd during their maiden voyage to the Hudson Valley in Basilica’s North Hall in July of 2015, we are pleased to welcome back the Obie award-winning performance series a year later.


2015 IN ART

Season Five: Year In Review


This season in art was our fifth and one of our most expansive yet – we welcomed artist/poet/character Jack Walls to Hudson in his exhibition “Paintings, Et. Cetera” – an incredibly talented man who has served as a source of inspiration for a generation of young artists including Ryan McGinley, Dan Colen, and the late Dash Snow. Dan Colen also joined us for this year’s Basilica SoundScape, when he spent a week in residence in our factory to create his Tar and Feather paintings to adorn the space. Also opening that weekend, curators Michael St. John, Javier Magri, Carol McCranie, and Tyler Moore presented a smart, reflexive group exhibition entitled The Now Forever. Curated by Daniel Peterson, Psychic Green Trailer was a site-specific installation by Bard MFA sculpture candidate Alan Danielson housed in our very own former Hudson Handling trailer. CATCH, the rough-and-ready performance series headed up the river to conquer Hudson and possibly America. And, we were proud to incubate the first iteration of HQTBD, an innovative roving art project that showcased the work of local artists. (more…)

CATCH — “everyone’s favorite” Brooklyn-based, hydra-headed, multi-disciplinary, rough-and-ready series of performance events — heads up the river to conquer the Hudson and possibly America. Pouring equal parts community, love, and beer along the way, CATCH delivers an array of the finest artists who call NYC or the Hudson Valley (and in some cases both) home.

CATCH is a Brooklyn­-based, nomadic and multidisciplinary performance series which creates a celebratory, communal space for both artists and audience members to experience bold new performance works in a rough and ready way. A serious performance framed by a serious party that whirls through Brooklyn every month or so (and now traveling up the Hudson!), each CATCH event features an array of artists working across­ and­ between disciplines, creating a space for community discovery and exchange.
