Khaela Maricich is a performing artist and pop musician. Under the name, The Blow, she has released a number of music albums and toured nationally and internationally. Working in music venues as well as art spaces, her performances explore and exploit the conventions of each format. Her recent work interweaves elements of narrative performance art with traditional pop-show dynamics. She has presented at such venues as The Kitchen, Irving Plaza, The Warhol Museum, Henry Fonda Theater, Great American Music Hall, and Wexner Center. She lives and works in New York City. The Blow's live performance is currently being produced in collaboration with artist Melissa Dyne.
Melissa Dyne is a conceptual and installation artist, whose large scale site-specific pieces have been exhibited in museums in the US and abroad. Her installations incorporate the physics of sound, light and spatial phenomena, frequently engaging in conversation with industry as well as spectator. Dyne’s solo exhibition, Glass, was presented at The Museum of Contemporary Craft, in 2008, and her works have been commissioned by the Museo de la Ciudad de Mexico, and performed in festivals in Mexico City, Hong Kong, and the United States. She currently lives in New York.
