Closing Reception: INTERACTIONISM: METAMORPHOSIS / interactive, performance and visual art
INTERACTIONISM : METAMORPHOSIS
Metamorphosis is the 3rd installment of Interactionism, a series of events in which the given space is transformed into an interactive and creative experience. Coupled with the concept of interactionism, each event is thematically prepared. The first was entitled Initiation, secondly Prudence & Perversion, with Metamorphosis as the third installment.
Interactionism asks for interaction between different media
interaction between separate art pieces
interaction between the artists
interaction between the art pieces and the viewers....
Our Very INTERACTIVE Lineup for Metamorphosis:
Joseph Umali Fernandez has created a sculpture to surround the gallery entryway; shaped as wings, each guest who passes through this sculpture will transform into a human butterfly. A photograph will be snapped of each guest and will receive a card to reach the website and view their snapshot. The artist has also invited participators to paint on the wings -- further transforming the piece over the course the event.
Apryl Deadly, Fetish/pin-up/alternative/tattoo model, will be posing for a live art session. Bring your creating supplies!
The creative group L'art Pour L'art, who hosts numerous Art Industry Mixers throughout Los Angeles, will be bringing in an interactive wishing tree installation for the transformation of thoughts into physical creation.
The "Telephone Project" is a series of artworks in which each artist interprets and responds to the work created before him or her, creating an interactive quality between the artworks themselves.
City Life Urban Lounge - this installation is a scale creation of the illusion of being outdoors within the gallery.
Maxfield Miles and his piece "Untitled (Reliquary for Bark)" aims to see how people interact/react without too much discourse to funnel their thought process.
