The Dale Henry giveaway event celebrates the third and final installment of Dale Henry: The Artist Who Left New York, a critically-acclaimed retrospective of painting, sculptural works and writing by the artist. Premiered at the legendary Clocktower Gallery in 2013, the exhibition traveled to Pioneer Works, Center for Art and Innovation in Red Hook, Brooklyn, in Spring 2014.

Amirtha Kidambi Quartet is comprised of Amirtha Kidambi (Seaven Teares/Elizabeth-Caroline Unit), Matt Nelson (Battle Trance/Tune-Yards), bassist Brandon Lopez (Vape Drip) and drummer Max Jaffe (Killer Bob). The group uses loose song structures as a template for improvisation, freely alternating between lyrics and abstract syllables. Oscillating between worlds of modal Sufi-like circular grooves, to jagged rhythmic precision and punishing brutality.
Amirtha Kidambi is a soloist, collaborator and ensemble member in groups such as Seaven Teares, Ashcan Orchestra, and vocal quartet Elizabeth-Caroline Unit. Kidambi has performed at Carnegie Hall, ISSUE Project Room, Roulette, Clocktower Gallery, Death by Audio, Silent Barn, Le Poisson Rouge and The Kitchen. She is the recipient of the Jerome Foundation's Emerging Artist Commission for Roulette in the 2015 season.
