MAP NOVEMBER NEWS: Off the MAP tomorrow 9/13! + {Re}HAPPENING Reminders


OFF THE MAP: TUESDAY NOVEMBER 13

featuring Christine Kirouac



The Media Arts Project presents an Off The MAP artist talk with Greensboro-based video artist CHRISTINE KIROUAC on Tuesday, November 13th at the Black Mountain College Museum + Art Center.



Samples of Kirouac’s work will be screened and the artist will discuss her interdisciplinary approach to art-making, and moving between self-produced work and collaboration.



Born in Canada, Kirouac is an award-winning media artist whose videos and installations move between enigmatic acts of personal revelation and social observation, blending elements of cinema, theater and documentary, evoking uneasy reactions of empathy, humor and pain.

Off the MAP is a lecture series presented by The Media Arts Project offering insightful talks by visual artists and performers who infuse conceptual approaches to art-making with new technology and traditional media.  If you have a specific project or idea related to the media arts that you'd like to present, or if you'd simply like to discuss your artistic approach and practice, please contact us! We would love to host you at a future Off the MAP event, either alone or alongside other artists.



REMINDER: {Re}HAPPENING 2013 CALL FOR ARTISTS



For last spring's {Re}HAPPENING, we had a massive surge in artist participation, so we are now asking artists to apply if they want to participate in the 2013 event.   It is an easy process, and we are changing things up a little this year. There are two ways to participate:



1. Highlighted Artist: These artists have the chance to develop and plan a piece of their choosing for the night of the event.  Selected artists receive a free Indiegogo workshop to help fund their projects!  The Media Arts Project will distribute a cash award directly to selected online fundraising campaigns.  A leader in your artistic medium will be available to help facilitate the project on site, give feedback and answer questions along the way.  Artists are notified of acceptance by January 15, 2013. 

Follow this link for Highlighted Artist application forms:  http://bit.ly/VsvRdf



2. Chance Operations: This follows a more spontaneous creative path.  Artistsʼ names will be randomly selected to create teams.  Then, each team is matched with various elements to produce a brand new collaborative presentation/performance that premieres on the evening of {Re}HAPPENING 2013.

Follow this link for Chance Operations application formshttp://bit.ly/XHK3fP



If you have any questions, concerns or circumstances you would to discuss please contact us via calltoartists@rehappening.com.  We would be happy to talk it over with you!

SMALL BITES:



URSULA GULLOW'S KIN AT PUSH GALLERY



MAP board member Ursula Gullow is currently exhibiting her paintings at PUSH Gallery and Skate Shop in downtown Asheville. The artist reception was held on November 9th, and the show hangs through January 8th, 2013.



KIN is Gullow's personal exploration of memory and documentation. Using photographs of her family taken in the mid 70's, Gullow conveys her own obtuse memories of that era through vaporous layers of paint, frenzied marks, foreboding shadows and riotous color. (image attached.)
