Ideographs

Ideographs is based on the concept of a symbiosis between abstraction and a mostly unseen, or perhaps misunderstood narrative. The transformation that takes place within the pupa as the metamorphosis of a butterfly takes place is one of the great unseen mysteries. Data that presented itself in one form carries within it’s imaginal discs all the information of a future transformation. In similar fashion, each of the artists in this exhibition carry the vestiges of narrative but transcend mere storytelling.

An Evening of Conversation with Scott Sternbach + Music by Andrei Matorin

***Tremors are signs of a colossal disaster coming on. The recent flare up of social issues have muted the progress we've made thus far for human rights. Artists exhibited have been asked to personally interpret the social state of the US in hopes to instill knowledge and promote positive change.

Blanket Fort As Ritual Practice : A Physical Poetry Workshop

This workshop uses the body, the voice, informal dance, play, and the creation of the embodied altar that is a blanket fort.

As we define this/these boundaries, we will create a liminal space. This space will be ours, an external manifestation of the meanings, charges and intentions we create for it.

Artist Marketing Workshop with Moth Dust

Attend an artist marketing workshop tailored to your personal needs. Discuss branding, social media marketing, and public relations. “Marketing” is often seen as a dirty word – but it is essential to the practices of any artist.

As an artist, you are also a small business owner. Your product is not your work as much as it is yourself. 

Marketing should be a true expression of who you really are.

Tümbiverse Opening Reception

tumbiverse-moth-dust-point-green-opening-reception

On view from July 27th - August 5th. 

On July 27th at 260 Java Street, enter Tümbiverse for a night of immersive art, music, drag, voguing, film, living dolls, and more!

Presented by Point Green Studio, Tümbiverse is a new group exhibition that explores the many ways that artists create otherworldly spaces for new expression. Michael Bianchino is a painter and sculptor who builds technicolor portals that allow for total immersion and self exploration. Known as Tümbox, these tumor boomboxes are Bianchino’s “post human, neurological response to an array of intergalactic feelings including devotion, love, galactic cannibalism, and chaos magic.” 

For Tümbiverse, Bianchino and co-curator Jasmine Williams invited twenty NYC creatives to show work alongside the latest edition of Tümbox. Featured artists use installation, sculpture, photography, painting, performance, sculpture, textiles, and video art to exhibit their own vivid sanctuaries. 

On August 5th, the final day of the exhibition, pop band Confetti Armorwill host the Blanket Fort as Ritual workshop. Gallery visitors will explore the making of their own colorful safe space through guided physical verbal practices, informal dance and play. The day will culminate in the creation of a blanket fort that will act as the centerpiece for the Tümbiverse closing party.
