Animamus is pleased to announce its inaugural salon to be held on February 27, 2011 at 7:00 PM at:
Party Xpo 929 Broadway
Brooklyn, NY 11206
Animamus’ mission is to create a safe, supportive, and inspiring environment for artists of all mediums to debut and discuss their current work while encouraging audience participation. Drawing its inspiration from the salon format first popularized in 17th Century France, where aristocrats invited thinkers, artists, and writers to their homes to discuss ideas, Bushwick Artist Salon seeks, in this digital age, to create a physical meeting space that will serve to foster the exchange of ideas, facilitate discourse, and create a sense of community. Salons will be held monthly. Although each salon will be curated, anyone interested in participating in future salons can propose a presentation/ performance by emailing email@example.com.
At this date, the following are slated to present work with more presenters to be added:
Ventiko is a photographic artist whose work involves staged scenes created from found objects. She will be creating a living installation utilizing empty milk cartons. http://www.ventiko.com
Sylva Dean and Me is a performance artist http://www.brianquinn.net/SYLVADEAN
Kristen Studioso is a video and stop motion artist. She will be screening new work. http://www.kristenstudioso.com
Coral Silverman is a visual artist and sometimes writer. Her work reflects upon the ways in which new forms of technology are changing our relationship to nature, each other, and ourselves. She will be presenting prose and paintings. www.coralsilverman.com
Everett Kane is a digital media teacher and artist who has been drawing 6 hours a day, seven days a week for six years. He posts new drawings on Facebook daily. He will be documenting the event through live drawing.
Fabio Corredor is a performance artist/instigator. He will be facilitating party games.
A canvas will be hung and the audience invited to freely mark and paint it between presentations. This work will serve to document the creative energy created by the environment and by the various attendees. No work shall be done on the painting outside of the Salon times. The canvas will be a recurring fixture at each salon.
