In Resonance

Encounters launches in 2023 with a summer art program, In Resonance. Contemporary artists will come together with Scorpios musicians, to engage with our community around digital art. With a series of live performances, special collaborations with musicians, and opportunities to collect exclusive artwork from leading contemporary artists, Scorpios will take you into the heart of the digital art movement.

Arising out of curiosity about the creative interplay between art and music, we are exploring new territory after having long championed emerging and established musicians with the evolution of the Scorpios sound. Embracing a spirit of collaboration between artists and the community, Scorpios investigates our relationship with the natural world through artists and musicians who resonate together. Curated in collaboration with HOFA gallery and M.Stahl.

THE YAWANAW√°

Guardians of the Forest

The Yawanawá communities of Aldeia Sagrada and Nova Esperança, indigenous to the Brazilian Amazon, are Refik Anadol’s creative collaborators on his exclusive artwork and the accompanying digital art collectible release, commissioned by Impact One for Scorpios.

Proceeds from sale of the artworks will go directly to the community. The funds will be used by the Yawanaw√° chiefs Nixiwaka, Putanny and Isku Kua, to support long-term initiatives for the protection of the Yawanaw√° lands and cultural heritage.

With a population of over 1200, the Yawanawá people live in villages nestled along the banks of the Gregório river in the Brazilian state of Acre, where they are guardians of thousands of acres of rainforest. The Yawanawá culture holds a deep connection to the natural world through the community’s ancestral wisdom, plant medicine and environmental stewardship.

The Yawanaw√° people's history is believed to go back millenia, with the first contact made with the western world only a little over a century ago. Despite the influence of external forces and continuous challenges from outsiders, the Yawanaw√° have managed to maintain their traditional way of life and preserve their culture.
