12 Minutes Max is a curated monthly performance series featuring short works by local artists in many disciplines.

Musician Marcus Koncar will perform a few of his more recent songs with friends Ivy Smith and Jake Rosenzweig. Marcus writes normally about personal experiences that are “a little too forthcoming with details” and has been described as "[having] a rare, authentic sort of earnestness and perception" within a sound that exists somewhere in the realm of avant-garde americana, psych folk and slowcore. He has been making music for five years in Salt Lake City, with two albums released under his name and three under the old moniker: r. Candall Lark.

 

Trent Harris will screen a brand-new short film called Soviet Bus Stop. Trent says “I make films because it is fun!  And I like ants.  I also love to make collages, so this is a collage film starring my friends the ants.” Independent Film & Video Magazine called Trent Harris, “One of America’s premiere cult directors.” Major screenings of his work include: Sundance, The Lincoln Center in New York, the British Film Institute, the Museum of Modern Art in Vienna, The Swiss Cinematheque, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. He has also been honored with six retrospectives of his work in Europe, South America and the States. Harris has just completed his eight feature film, Echo People. Along with dozens of experimental films he has also produced scores of nationally broadcast documentaries for NBC, National Geographic and PBS. 


Choreographer and dancer Nina Wilson will present a duet created in collaboration with Masio Sangster, about, for and in remembrance of siblings. Nina joined the Salt Lake arts community in 2019, and has performed and choreographed with Oquirrh West Project, 801 Salon and others.

This program is modeled after 12 Minutes Max, a performance laboratory originated by On the Boards in Seattle.

About the branch

NOTE: The Main Library's Rooftop Terrace is closed through 2022 for repairs and renovations.

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The structure embraces a public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium.

A multi-level reading area along the Glass Lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the Library and the Crescent Wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
