BROWARD COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT & ARTSUP! FIELD TRIP FOR THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED

     Friday, October 14, 2016

·       10:30am  11:30am

ArtsUP! An experimental art gallery and producer of site-responsive art installations, invited and will host a group of visually impaired children from the Broward School District. It is our desire to fully connect with our community and not make any assumptions of how best that can be achieved. ArtsUP! invites potential end-users (in this case, the visually impaired) to participate and provide their feedback. Our artists and art production will gain critical knowledge in design of cultural experiences enjoyed by the visually impaired. We will diffuse this knowledge in our productions, enriching the communities we touch with our on-site art-installations. The field trip led by Victoria “Tori” Holsinger Teacher of the Visually Impaired, incorporates the visually impaired community with ArtsUP! and the network of Downtown Ft. Lauderdale (FATVillage) art organizations we have asked to join us in this inaugural event.

ARTIST'S RECEPTION FOR IN THE WOODS | AN ALGORITHMIC ART INSTALLATION BY PETER SYMONS

·       Thursday, October 13, 2016

·       7:30pm  10:00pm

[Complimentary Bar 7:45pm - 8:45pm]

In the Woods | Peter Symons
In the Woods is an algorithmic art installation that responds to its surrounding as well as to itself. This piece reflects upon its circumstance by use of a camera that perceives what is happening in the space in which it exists. It looks at the situation within which it resides and picks out change and movement. This becomes the basis for a series of feedback loops that result in the formation of an abstracted color patterning. This generated abstraction is then projected into the space and into the program’s realm of perception creating change that is again interpreted by the algorithm. A physical installation exists in the space, catching and interacting with the light that the projector creates and disrupt the logic of the algorithm and by doing so introduces elements of chance.  This is the third iteration of In the Woods. In this version, the physical installation is an arrangement of acrylic mirrors that are woven together to form an almost fabric. The mirrors become a disruptive screen breaking the light of the projectors and scattering it through the space.  Through this series of work I am looking to create art with agency: works that exist as entities of intelligences in themselves. Where the act of looking becomes an act of interaction and interaction becomes more than just use: it becomes a form of conversation

Exploring ideas and themes regarding current art and architecture, how they are influenced and expressed in society is what interests me. My point of view as an artist is created through interactive performance pieces, video, and sculptures that explore human behavior while simultaneously considering an individual’s environment and situations.

Communication to the viewer becomes key, which is why there is a large interactive part where the work engages with the viewer. I explore relationships within my work (The correlation of color and shape), which leads to a creation of an aesthetic occurrence through non-traditional material that engages both the senses and emotions of the audience. Process is key to my work. This is where I begin to create a language that will create a dialogue between the audience and the pieces itself. I begin the process by breaking down an idea, which leads to the creation of a key, identifiers and symbols. Once I have this key I am able to construct the simplified forms from which my work grows.

Presently, what drives and fuels my current work are the interactions and manipulations of material. I am dealing with concepts of space and engagement and have incorporated them within a series of collaborative interdisciplinary pieces. Working with performance elements, I experience how human proportion relates to the actual artwork. I enjoy how I purposely invade real space as opposed to using two-dimensional lines in painting, which recede into the background and thereby structure the illusion of linear perspective. I have begun experimenting with film, using shape, layering, sounds and movement itself as my mediums.

PHOTOGRAPHER WORKSHOP

·       Sunday, March 6, 2016

·       11:00am  1:00pm

‘Art Stills’ by Christin Paige Minnotte

You're invited to : "How to see and read art photographically: a guided workshop on understanding and photographing artwork"

What makes a good photograph of an artwork?  This workshop is not about photographic technique but about how to see artwork and how to translate that understanding into a good photograph.  The participant will learn how to take a better photograph of an artwork but more importantly, how to visually understand, read, describe and really see an artwork.  Artist and fine art photographer Christin Paige Minnotte will lead a participatory workshop and guided experience for photographers of all levels on how to distill an artwork conceptually and translate those qualities into a refined two dimensional still photograph.  Using Vanessa Diaz's large scale sculptural installation at Fat Village as an example, the student will learn how to refine and edit both their perception of the work and their understanding of designing and conceiving visual imagery in two dimenstions.   

There is a distinct difference between seeing via the real time experience of an artwork and 'seeing' a strong, successful photograph of an artwork. Like visual prose, making a photograph which sings is not about including everything, but rather about simplifying the work to include only that which most clearly states the essence of the work and which simultaneously achieves formal harmony.

The two hour workshop requires you bring a camera and a zoom lens or a selection of a long and wide lens and a card reader for those shooting digitally.  Students will be given the opportunity, after instruction and a guided experience of the artwork, to photograph the work and have their work critiqued during the second half of the workshop (if shooting digitally).

Christin Paige Minnotte is a fine art, fashion and portrait photographer with degrees in art practice, theory and literature from Bard College and SFAI where she was awarded a portfolio scholarship to attend art school.  Her work has been featured in several international art and culture magazines and she shows her fine art and fashion work in galleries in New York City, Miami and abroad.  Her Fashion Art Projects have recently been acquired by Hamburg Kennedy Photographs, a photography gallery in NYC whose Fashion Pictures International division is the only gallery in the world specializing in the fine art of fashion photography. This past year she was also invited to perform her Disposable Ethic performance art piece as part of the historic 2015 Havana Biennial in Cuba. She has also lectured and moderated discussions on art theory in Miami galleries.

THE POSSIBILITY OF AN EXIT

·       Fri, Jan 29, 20166:00pm  Sun, Mar 6, 20167:00pm

ARTSUP!  

OPENING PREVIEW JANUARY 29, 2016 AT 6-9 PM

529 NW 1ST AVE, FORT LAUDERDALE LOCATED IN THE FAT VILLAGE ARTS DISTRICT

The Possibility of an Exit is an immersive installation experience, which invites the viewer to consider a precarious and unlikely path of escape through a volatile hanging obstacle course. This site-specific work utilizes salvaged items cleared from buildings before demolition, architectural elements, fencing, discarded tarps, window blinds, lighting fixtures….  altogether spanning across the structural ceiling supports to form a series of connecting pathways.
