MIXED / MULTI-MEDIA SALON
FIRST TUESDAY AT THE ARMORY
Tuesday, Dec 4th, 2012 6:30 – 8:30 PM
The MIXED / MULTI-MEDIA SALON continues its discussion of contemporary art themes, practices, and techniques.At this Salon, we will be looking at the life and art of world renowned Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. He is known for projects such as his collaboration with architects Herzog & de Meuron on the design of the 2008 Beijing Olympic National Stadium, and for his recent battles for accountability and freedom of expression in China, using the internet and social media as an active platform for social and political commentary and as an art form in itself. He also works in photography, video, sculpture, and installation, using wood, bronze, antique, natural and found objects, and many other materials for work that is sometimes documentary, sometimes simply beautiful, mostly conceptual, and always highly imaginative, from his 12 years in the US, to his return to China, exploring China’s past and present. His work is currently on display at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC, and in a documentary film, “Never Sorry”.
At the Mixed / Multi Media Salon, we examine the work of some of the most important artists showing work in museums today, and also meet local artists who are emerging into the larger art world. We’re covering the broader world of conceptual art and where we as artists fit into the big picture. APBC is collaborating on this Salon with the Armory Art Center.
Art Salons meet on the first Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:30 pm. If you’d like to present the work of an influential artist, or share your own work, please contact Elle Schorr firstname.lastname@example.org the Salon. Either the actual work or PowerPoint presentations can be shown.
******* Because New Year’s Day falls on the first Tuesday in January, and because there are five Tuesdays in January, Salons will be on the second and fourth Tuesdays. For this month only, Mixed / Multi Media Salon will meet on January 8.
The Armory Art Center is now hosting three different art salon-style groups. All salons are $10, payable at the door. You do not need to be a member of the Armory or APBC to attend. All Salons are in Studio 101, in the long 2 story building behind the garden. Bring snacks to share if you’d like.
