Studio22 Concert Series
4 intimate musical experiences in an art gallery

As part of this year's artignite*, Studio22 is presenting a concert series of 4 intimate musical experiences within our art gallery space over the 2 week art festival. We have invited some of our favourite musical artists to headline the evenings. The first 3 concerts will also feature opening performance by young, up and coming Kingston musicians. The last concert will be experimental in a playful way with a group of experienced musicians performing from different stages throughout the space. The gallery's artwork will play a role and the audience will be asked to allow the experience of the space, the sound and the sights to guide them to surprising places.
