The Olivia Newton-John-a-thon is an ongoing project that presents an imagined collaboration between Michael Martini and Olivia Newton-John. Yes, the Australian pop star. We're looking at tensions between the meaningful and meaningless, the commercial and the artistic, the *physical* and the digital. This project has seen short iterations at Intra-Action at Xpace Culture Centre (Toronto), Not/Fitting-in at the VAV Gallery (Montreal), and Hotwire: a Night of QTBIPOC performance and video art at Casa del Popolo (Montreal).
Visite Collective is one-year project that represents three multidisciplinary artists working interdependently and sharing resources. Over the course of one year, we are incubating and presenting autonomous performance projects- often in-process, sometimes in conjunction with other emerging artists, and always on our own terms. Visite Collective is Burcu Emeç, Roxa Hy, and Michael Martini. Subscribe to our bulletin here to be kept in the loop about upcoming presentations: https://goo.gl/forms/dHBGdQudQRnL9FYk1
