12 Artists. 12 Hours. Once in a Lifetime.
Miko Kuro’s Midnight Tea conveys the essence of poetry as an interactive multisensory experience. These events have been held in France, Canada, Greece, China and the USA since 2008—each focuses on creating “poetic moments” in a space designed for intimacy, vulnerability, and a multiplicity of creative freedom.
These experimental forays are documented in several ways including: sound recording, video, and photography. In December of 2012, I assembled a group of twelve artists of different disciplines from the US and Canada to accompany me to Mumbai, India where together we completed the first 12-hr-long version of Miko Kuro’s Midnight Tea—an art ritual that began on the West side of Mumbai at the Tao Gallery and crossed the city to the Lakeeren Art Gallery in the South. It was described by the Times of India as both “a little weird at first” and “straight out of abstract cinema”—exactly the sort of candid confirmation I began to expect after working with so many local creatives to complete the project successfully.
