Sugar Loaf, NY
JULY 20, 2019
With twilight as a backdrop, the festival features 21 immersive projects by 40 contemporary artists from across the United States. Featured projects include a synthesizer petting zoo, an open-air performance in a U-Haul truck, a historical re-enactment, an inflatable room, and a nature bathing station.
The festival’s 2019 projects span performance art, cooking, music, virtual reality, dance, and interactive theater, all of which occur simultaneously, throughout the duration of the event. Visitors wander the grounds and engage with the installations and performances, bringing Dusklit to life.
Dusklit is presented outdoors on the historic Seligmann Homestead. Once home to the Surrealist Kurt Seligmann, and frequented by Marcel Duchamp, Kay Sage, and Max Ernst, the property carries a history of art and magic. This year, the festival falls on Kurt Seligmann’s 119th birthday.
