A SPECIAL PROJECT FOR THE 22: THE COMPENDIUM LAUNCH EVENT, JAN 19TH. Thursday, January 19th, 6-11pm
Over the course of the past few months The 22 along with several Brooklyn based organizations and artists have been working to develop a collaborative group of creators to join forces on a project. We’ll be having our first meet and greet Jan 19th to introduce any artists or organizations that might be interested in being involved in the project. Please join us for art, performance, and discussion as we launch The Compendium project! The initial organizers will share their artistic practices, speak with you about what our communities need this year, and begin to construct a “living compendium” of participating artists across disciplines. Come to get involved, come to throw your work into the curatorial and organizational mix, come get to know us if you don’t already, and come to enjoy yourself!
6pm: Gallery hours (work curated by Cat Gilbert, The 22 Magazine) and mingle
Cat Gilbert Alexander Barton Aaron Howard
7pm-11pm: performances by composer/musicians Valerie Kuehne, Ian Colletti, collaborative work by Thomas Bell, Christina DeRoos and Anya Liftig, performance by experimental music ensemble thingNY, performance collective Panoply Performance Laboratory, and more.
Free admission, donations-for-beer from the Brooklyn Brewery. All proceeds go towards artist fees for the many local and international artists we will be working with this year, as well as towards a special issue of The 22 Magazine and a final Book (The Compendium) documenting the year of projects.
