Call it raw creative energy or studio time together, Julie Torres joined me a week ago where she completed the below painting on paper:
48-hour marathon where she along with 11 other artists will paint, socialize and sleep, a little. The other artists are; Paul Behnke, Brian Bustos, Julie Curtiss, Rebecca Goyette, Katarina Hybenova, Ken Kocses, Geddes Levenson, Rebecca Litt, Chris McGee, Joey Parlett and Jamie Powell. (Hope I got all the links right!)
From the press release: 48 HRS is a celebration and exploration of art-making and socializing in Brooklyn. It is a 48-Hour residency that will culminate in a site-specific group show.
The artists in the show will meet at Camel Art Space for a 24-Hour art-making session. They will then stay/sleep/socialize in the space and exhibit their work the next day. The entire event will take place over a 48-Hour period.
The show will be open to the public for one day only: Sunday, October 23, 12 Noon – Midnight.
Artists will be in attendance at the opening to discuss their work, and the process. Photo and video documentation of the art-making event will as well be exhibited.
The opening will certainly be a time and place experience where we can all look into that creative space where and how art is made. Will they all influence each other, will it be like a school, what mysteries in art production will be revealed? We shall see.
