Countdown to First Friday with Invisible

By CAM Raleigh | March 27, 2012

Get ready to experience the convergence of sound, music, art, and obsolete technologies at CAM Raleigh's April 6 First Friday event. Greensboro-based collective Invisible will be performing The New Obsolete at 7:30 p.m. in the museum's street level gallery. CAM Raleigh is excited to host this special performance in conjunction with its current feature exhibition Born Digital–Exploring Digital Culture and Interactivity.

The New Obsolete explores obsolescence in technology as well as the human body. This installation is equal parts music performance, video and visual art with closed captioning provided by a live typist.

The objects featured in The New Obsolete will be displayed in the CAM Raleigh street gallery from March 31 through April 6, 2012. Along with the objects, CAM Raleigh will debut a new documentary by North Carolina filmmaker Jonathan Butler of performance art group Invisible and their latest show: The New Obsolete.

Don't miss out! In addition to Invisible's performance, CAM Raleigh's April First Friday will include after-hours access to exhibitions, a new hands-on activity in the Creation Station, cash bar, and food trucks in the museum courtyard.
