ABOUT VisionIntoArt at NS

VisionIntoArt, “always intriguing and frequently beguiling”, is a multimedia production company that “facilitates flamboyant, confounding and enticing collaborations” (New York Times). With the belief that collaboration sustains artistic innovation, VIA creates and commissions works that involve various disciplines, presented around the world for the general audience, and forged from the most exciting emerging and established artists living today as well as interdisciplinary experts including scientists and conservationists. We are a one-stop-shop for artists in many disciplines – we incubate, produce, and disseminate.

Since Paola Prestini co-founded the company in 1999 at the Juilliard School, VIA has created and performed over one hundred original works and produces as well through their self titled record label.

VIA’s works have been seen at Lincoln Center, the Krannert Center, the Barbican Centre, the Atlas Theater, HIFA in Zimbabwe, The Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Kennedy Center, Teatro Manzoni, Etna Fest in Italy, and BEMUS in Belgrade, Serbia along with residencies at MASS MoCA and The Park Avenue Armory.
