RADIO // Rush InteractiveWynne Greenwood and Debra Singer
Hosted by Michael Rush
Originally aired 2/21/05
Michael Rush visits with the twenty-something quadruple-threat rock-diva Wynne Greenwood, who talks about Tracy + the Plastics, an all-girl punk-inspired band that consists of vocalist Tracy, keyboardist Nikki, and drummer Cola, all of whom are played by Greenwood. Joining the conversation is Debra Singer, former Whitney curator and currently Director and Chief Curator at The Kitchen who commissioned Greenwood's latest interactive work, The Room.
Wynne Greenwood is one of those artists that critics love to categorize. She's D.I.Y. She's collegiate. She's an honest, anti-discriminatory, lesbian feminist. Her beats are kinda like later Kathleen, and her voice echoes early Polly Jean. In performance Greenwood sings live as Tracy while interacting with projections of herself as the other band members on a video screen behind her.
"Ever since Debra Singer became an associate curator at the museum in 2001, the Whitney's sound and digital art exhibits have taken a higher profile. Singer's interests run the full gamut of digital and sound art, from activists such as Velvet-Strike... to sound artists such as Julianne Swartz...and artrock musicians such as Los Super Elegantes whose neo-60s sound was the background to the ultra groovy installation by assume vivid astro focus in the (2004) Biennial." -Craig Bromberg
