San Diego – Dec. 20, 2022 – UC San Diego Park & Market announced today the launch of Intersections, a new interdisciplinary event series, presented by UC San Diego Division of Extended Studies , taking place at the multi-tenant, mixed-use business, arts, and educational office building in downtown San Diego’s East Village. Starting in January 2023, a number of Intersections events offering new, diverse takes on traditional ideas and forms in a variety of disciplines, from artistic performances to educational lectures will take place at Park & Market’s state-of-the-art Guggenheim Theatre.
Intersections is curated by Andrew Waltz, Director of Arts Management at Park & Market. Upcoming Intersections events include a concert series curated and hosted in partnership with leading ethnographer-artist Yale Strom, which will offer authentic explorations of global music.
“Intersections fits directly into the mission of Park & Market, which is to forge connections between people, artists, educators, businesses and innovators both in San Diego and worldwide,” said Waltz. “We are thrilled to be working with curatorial partners including Yale Strom in order to bring world-class artists, writers, leaders and experts to our world-class venue. Even more exciting is the prospect of introducing San Diego audiences to ideas or approaches to traditional forms they might not otherwise encounter in a live space, in lineups they may not previously have imagined, all with thoughtful narrators to guide them through the experience.”
The upcoming Intersections concert series will be hosted by violinist Yale Strom, one of the world's leading ethnographer-artists of klezmer and Romani music and history.
“I am thankful for the opportunity to collaborate with Park & Market to bring an eclectic, influential variety of musicians into a brand-new venue in downtown San Diego as part of Intersections,” said Strom. “Having traveled and performed throughout the world, I think it’s incredibly valuable to be able to bring artists from everywhere who have never performed in San Diego to play in our city. I love seeing how artists and genres can mix and complement each other, and look forward to bringing San Diego audiences along with us on this intersectional journey.”
