As part of theCampaign Trail: The Election in Action series, Trade&Row presents FOCUS, a focus group conducted by Los Angeles-based artists Jeff Foye and Gordon Winiemko, Saturday, August 9, 2008, 1pm at Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena.
In a time of increasing economic instability, an interminable war, and a historic election, Jeff and Gordon feel it is more necessary than ever to query the opinions and preferences of those who fall into a thoughtful, progressive demographic—artists, art organizers and art enthusiasts alike. The focus group will center on this year's election and the electoral process. Knowledge and appreciation of contemporary art is not necessary, but a plus.
The experience will last about an hour, and will entail discussion, role-play, and refreshments, as well as some imagery.
In addition, Trade&Row will also be conducting a community workshop to generate ideas and discussions related to the election and the electoral process as seen from the community’s point of view.
