IlluminArts and Oolite Arts are thrilled to present the GRAMMY winning Attacca Quartet and Pulitzer Prize winning composer and singer Caroline Shaw in a performance inspired by the work of Oolite Arts resident artist, Sasha Wortzel.

Born and raised in Southwest Florida, Sasha Wortzel is an artist and filmmaker working between Miami and New York City. In their Oolite Arts solo exhibition DREAMS OF UNKNOWN ISLANDS, Wortzel references cycles of life be they natural, influenced, extracted or at times accelerated by human interference. As voices and sea levels rise, Wortzel marks and distorts time all the while calling out for some semblance of peace, care for the land, care for each other, and eventual liberation.

The Attacca Quartet's latest recording, Orange, won the 2020 GRAMMY® award for “Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance,” and features string quartet works by composer Caroline Shaw: the youngest ever winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music. Shaw's career defies categorization—she performs as a violin soloist, chamber musician, and as a vocalist in the Grammy-winning ensemble Roomful of Teeth. In a musical program anchored by the works of Caroline Shaw, this performance will tell the rising story of the intersection between nature and humanity.
