Three Days: A Voluminous Arts Festival
74 15th St, Brooklyn, NY 11215, USA
Popping up at KAJE February 24 through 26, Three Days: A Voluminous Arts Festival is a weekend-long music and art festival centering trans artists experimenting with music and sound. Designed as a multisensorial experience where aural and visual components weave themselves through communal episodes, the festival provides a glimpse into the work Voluminous Arts’ artists have been developing during their research residency at KAJE from September 2022 to February 2023.
Three Days marks a new chapter of Voluminous Arts as the label moves into its third year, establishing it as a space to celebrate the connections between experimental music and the dancefloor. The festival is both exhibition and celebration. Since most research activities have not been open to the public, this event becomes an exhibition to showcase the work developed—while at the same time being a weekend-long party for the public and the artists involved.

ABOUT VOLUMINOUS ARTS RESEARCH RESIDENCY AT KAJE: Voluminous Arts is currently in residence at Brooklyn art space KAJE as part of their Research Residency Program. This residency provides creative organizations an opportunity to explore themes and concepts of interest to their mission without pressure on a defined result. For Voluminous Arts’ this residency was dedicated to providing transgender artists a space to explore creativity not hemmed in by genre categorization or the demands of legibility in the marketplace, as framed by Gavilán Rayna Russom’s essay “Werpos” that introduced it.
