Friday Flights hosted by Mikael Jorgensen and Cassandra C. Jones
The Getty Center, Los Angeles, August 8, 2014.
Friday Flights is an inter-disciplinary performance series at the Getty Center that brings together a network of Los Angeles-based musicians, visual artists, and creative thinkers. Each session is hosted by artists whose work blurs the worlds of music and contemporary art. Consisting of anything but a traditional concert, they are invited to bring in a range of creative collaborators to develop the evening's program.
Ojai, California residents Mikael Jorgensen and Cassandra C. Jones hosted the fourth and final Friday Flight of the 2014 summer. Jorgensen is the keyboardist in the alternative rock band Wilco and releases electronic music under his own name. Jones is a new-media artist with a focus in digital photomontage who is represented by Eli Ridgway Contemporary and Judith Charles Gallery in New York City. As husband and wife they share a mutual interest in the role technology plays in human expression and the many ways in which digital media and traditional forms of art making intermix.
