I'll be doing an open studio starting Friday, Jan 27 at 7pm going until Sunday, Jan 29. All days will be until 10pm. The open studio will be held at Zaratan Arte Contemporanea and will be upstairs from the gallery in the residents' quarters. The work on display will be the studies that I created during the residency period that started on Jan 1, 2017. Also being shown will be the work-in-progress sculpture using beer cans and a collaborative video done with fellow resident Daniel Gawronski. Admission is free.
This video is of the artist talk I gave in January, 2017 at Zaratan Arte Contemporanea in Lisbon, Portugal. The discussion was Novo-Surrealism and the Media's Message versus the Audience's Understanding of Reality. About 10 people attended live and about 200 people attended on the live broadcast on FB Live.
The discussion lasts about an hour and covers the theory of the project, possible avenues the project can take going forward, and how open the idea can become.
