ALL ARTS Artist in Residence: Oh Family Concert  
Premieres Sunday, April 2 at 8 p.m. ET on ALL ARTS
Access: AD, CC available.

Artist Diana Oh, known for their genre-defying work celebrating queer, trans and non-binary people, performs an intimate concert of original music in front of seven decades of their family to honor their mother, June. The film provides a moving look at how their latest music, art and personal storytelling projects deepened their relationship with June, who came to the U.S. after the Korean War. Oh is a Refinery29 Top LGBTQ+ Influencer, Van Lier Fellow in Acting (Asian American Arts Alliance), Venturous Capital Fellow, Sundance Institute Fellow, Helen Merrill Award recipient and member of indie-rock band The U.S. Open.

Most recently, Oh performed “The Gift Project,” a concert and documentary series celebrating elders, specifically of marginalized experience and identity, at Symphony Space in April 2022.

ALL ARTS Artist in Residence: Whiteness  
Premieres Sunday, April 9 at 8 p.m. on ALL ARTS
Access: AD, CC available.

Multidisciplinary musician, creator and performer Paul Pinto wrote and composed this inner dialogue on self-identification, which is designed by performance-maker Kameron Neal. Whiteness features a series of chants, rants and songs reflecting the silliness, severity and anxieties of skin color performed by a chorus of harmonizing floating heads. The film builds on the artists’ series of immersive music video cantatas interrogating “whiteness,” which they first presented digitally in HERE’s PROTOTYPE Festival in January 2021 and then at La Mama and CultureHub in February 2022. Pinto is a band member of thingNY, Varispeed and LoveLoveLove. His recent commissions include “The Approach for Quince,” “I pass’d a church” for the Rhythm Method string quartet, and upcoming premieres for the “Yarn/Wire,” Look + Listen Festival and The Fisher Center. Neal is a New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA)/New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Fellow and a Public Artist in Residence in the New York City Department of Records. His work has been featured in Forbes, The New York Times, National Geographic and Hypebeast, and presented by a variety of institutions, including The Public Theater, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) and Ars Nova.

Premieres Sunday, April 16 at 8 p.m. on ALL ARTS
Access: AD, CC available.

Multimedia artist, director and choreographer Colombian-Japanese duo Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya share a personal meditation on food through a visual poem of enigmatic landscapes, ambiguous bodies and mythical characters. The film hints at society’s post-industrial relationship to food and is a companion piece to the artists’ immersive live performance “A Meal,” which is in development at HERE. Garnica and Moriya are Creative Capital, National Dance Project, National Endowment for the Arts and Café Royal Cultural Foundation Award recipients; and Watermill Center and Chelsea Factory Artists in Residence. Garnica and Moriya have been nominated for The Herb Alpert Award in the Arts and a United States Artists Fellowship. Garnica received the Van Lier Fellowship for extraordinary stage directors and was a Distinguished Visiting Professor at the University of California, Riverside.

ALL ARTS Artist in Residence: Daytripper  
Premieres Sunday, April 23 at 10:55 p.m. on ALL ARTS
Access: AD, CC available.

American Ballet Theatre (ABT) principal dancer and choreographer James Whiteside created this lyrical modern silent film that tells the story of two men serendipitously meeting and falling in love on a beautiful summer day in Fire Island Pines. Created by Whiteside and Korean American filmmaker Kylie Juggert, Daytripper features performances by Lloyd Knight, principal dancer with Martha Graham Dance Company, and Jake Tribus, artistic associate with Gibney Company. Whiteside is redefining the meaning of multihyphenate as a principal dancer in “Swan Lake,” “The Nutcracker,” “Romeo and Juliet,” “Giselle” and many other renowned ABT ballets; hilarious pop music performer under the stage name JbDubs; drag queen; podcast host; and author of “Center Center: A Funny, Sexy, Sad, Almost-Memoir of a Boy in Ballet.” He has choreographed for pop stars including Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift and Fischerspooner.

Past seasons of ALL ARTS Artist in Residence are available to stream nationwide on the free ALL ARTS app and AllArts.org/ArtistInResidence. The program launched in 2021 with Whitman in the Woods., a drag performance film exploring Walt Whitman’s poetry from Taylor Mac, MacArthur Fellow and Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Drama. Last year, ALL ARTS expanded its Artist in Residence program through a partnership with The Shed’s Open Call, a large-scale commissioning program for early-career New York City-based artists. Projects include Matthew Whitaker: About Tomorrow, an autobiographical film from jazz pianist Matthew Whitaker; The Roll Call: The Roots to Strange Fruit, a sonic opera from Obie winner Jonathan McCrory; There is no movement without rhythm, an exploration of bodily and spiritual liberation in the music of the African Diaspora by multimedia artist Le’Andra LeSeur; and Volvo Truck and the Girls From Up the Hill, an impressionistic performance film from DonChristian Jones.
