Join us on December 12, 2017, for Kalavinka to celebrate artists Shige Moriya and Ximena Garnica, their expansive body of work and commitment to supporting other emerging artists.  Since 1996, Shige and Ximena have led a variety of community programs providing affordable workspace, training and presenting opportunities for emerging artists at their home studio, CAVE, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Simultaneously they have developed, created and toured collaborative works ranging from sculptural, video, and light installations to photography, performances, and publications. Their work has been shown in a variety of local and international venues including BAM, HERE, Joyce SoHo, The Brooklyn Museum, The New Museum, and The Watermill Center.

Kalavinka will honor acclaimed composer, singer, and choreographer, Meredith Monk. The evening will bring together artists, friends, and art supporters at CAVE for an intimate seated dinner in a unique environment of installations and performances. The dinner will be followed by an after-party event, offering additional guests the opportunity to meet and share with LEIMAY’s artists and ensemble at their home and workspace.

Kalavinka is the third benefit hosted by LEIMAY. The second, Aluna Sintana took place on December 7, 2016, and honored composer Laurie Anderson and director Robert Wilson. The first, Hanasaka, took place on December 1, 2015, and honored composer Philip Glass together with Zachary Model and Juan Merchan.
