Fata Morgana

Three days of music, film, literature, & conversation, featuring internationally acclaimed artists including Onyx Ashanti, Scott Deal, Aurie Hsu, Steven Kemper, Margaret Lancaster, Elainie Lillios, and Forward Motion.

Join us during the first week in October for Fata Morgana, three days of music, film, literature, and conversation.

Fata Morgana, a name for a type of mirage, explores the ways in which we imagine and experience the modern world–our aspirations, our fears, our technologies, our institutions.

With 15 music performances and 18 films across four galleries, there is plenty to explore.

Our lineup of performers includes

  • Onyx Ashanti, self-described “cyborg” musician, inventor, and programmer
