BURNAWAY does its best to get to as many openings, closings, performances, readings (and the like) as we can. Most are free and offer great opportunities to interact and support the local arts community. We’ll attempt to share our whirlwind experiences with you, but we take no responsibility for causing FOMO (fear of missing out).
WEEKEND OF OCTOBER 2-4
Despite Afropunk and Flux Night being cancelled due to heavy rain, there was still a lot to take in this past weekend. Read on!
Zachari Logan, “Unfathomable” at Alan Avery Art Company. Closes November 7.
Secret dicks! This is beautifully done, and I love this secret. How do you really feel, Zachari Logan?– Haylee Anne
I think non-photo blue pencil, which is usually associated with graphic design and the print industry, maybe indicates some sort of non-reproducible wild man? – Angela Bortone
Carol Prusa, “Unfathomable” at Alan Avery Art Company. Closes November 7.
My brain hurts with the amazing detail; I like it because it looks like a cake mold, a bundt pan. – Haylee Anne
You can tell all of this is done by hand; what’s unfathomable is the level of perfectly rendered detail.– Angela Bortone
Dana Haugaard, “No Here More Than Here” at MINT Gallery. Closes November 22.
Is this the only thing here? – Angela Bortone
I like that it’s the only thing because it commands all of your attention, it forces you to interact with it and pay attention to it.– Iman Person
Do you see how it is reflecting on the wall?– Haylee Anne
Sheila Pree Bright, “1960Now” at Mason Fine Art. Closes November 6.
Sheila is making work that needs to be seen, it needs to be documented. I’m looking at these photo’s and comparing them to Gordon Park’s works that just showed at the High Museum. – Haylee Anne
Stephanie Eley, “Invisible to Others” at Mason Fine Art. Closes November 6.
I really admire and love that you’re using alternative processes! – Haylee Anne
Now that I’m making images of [disabled] people who are blind, I wanted the prints to reflect that, which is why I included the imperfections of the chemicals on the prints. There’s something about working with cyanotypes – you’re always trying so hard to get that perfect shade of blue! – Stephanie Eley
Danielle Deadwyler re-performing Body Tracks by Ana Mendieta for “Blood, Milk & Fire: Re-Performance Art of 1962-1977” at Mammal Gallery.
She took the form of the original piece but updated all the elements to say something relevant and put a contemporary twist on it. – Angela Bortone
The look on her face, the track of the red line … I’m completely impacted. What a powerful interpretation.– Haylee Anne
Patti Lacrete re-performing Cut Piece by Ono Yoko for “Blood, Milk & Fire: Re-Performance Art of 1962-1977” at Mammal Gallery.
She started the performance with a modest dress that said “black lives matter,” which was cut down until she looked like Jane at the end of Tarzan. – Angela Bortone
I’m really drawn by her stillness, it’s haunting.– Haylee Anne
