Fix your Broken Art and other Art things on Sunday
One of my favorite weekend pastimes entails finding an intersting Open Studios to peruse new artists and their art. I like to visit the artists in their studios for many reasons. I like to see the stuff, I like to see the space, I like to see the work ethic. usually the artist is there and I haven't seen their work before. It's easier to befriend this artist than at an opening in a gallery.
Also it's a great reason to get into a new part of town and to check out all the other wanderers. An ultimate people-watching treat. It's easy to do alone or with a partner.
This coming weekend, BETA is a one-day event in Bushwick invited visitors to really explore a lot of what it means to make and experience art. It's like an open studios for artists, like a thesis of an open studios. It seems like most of it is interactive and experience-centered.
Does it seem as much to you as it does to me that all the cutting-edge art these days has to be moment-in-time Experienced?
I've tagged this post on the map at #28. This event looks totally different from anything I've ever seen/participated with before, "Please come on Sunday November 14 with an open spirit, broken art and maybe a beer. This will not be a critique session of your work, it will be an active insightful journey using specialized repair technology and possible self-help."
