In addition to the Electric City Art Lodge photography show ‘Exposure’ in the Project Space and Mudroom, Artspace has some great stuff in store for the main gallery space this weekend as well.
On Friday November 11th, 2011 at 7pm, an opening reception will be hosted by ARTSPACE to kick off an installation by Nadia Moss and James Kirkpatrick in the main gallery. During the reception, the artists will perform a short concert of duet and solo music. Admission to the reception is free of charge, light refreshments served.
MASHUP is the result of an experimental residency. In music, a mashup is a composition created by blending two or more pre-recorded songs. ARTSPACE has invited two artists who are active in both the visual and audio arts to live onsite and generate an installation of new and existing work. The intention is to create a forum for conversation and creative experimentation and an opportunity for each to expand their practice.
By casting light through acetate scratched with safety pins and painted with carefully applied matte medium and glue Moss’s reveals shadowy figures. Moss will also be creating temporary murals on the gallery walls and windows with soil and spray paint. James Kirkpatrick is inspired by street art, found objects, comics, simple electronics and cityscapes. Incorporating abstract mark making, kinetic elements and interactive instruments, Kirkpatrick’s work bridges the audio and the visual.
MASHUP will be on display from November 11th, 2011 at 7pm through January 7th, 2012. Admission to the exhibit is free of charge.
