Join threewalls Thursday, December 4th at 7:00 PM for The Artist in the Field (The rise of the residency and the return to nature), a SALON featuring Sarah Workneh of Ox-Bow; Abby Satinsky of InCUBATE and Harold Arts; Joe Jeffers, Emily Green and Nicholas Wiley of Harold Arts, for a discussion about the artist residency. Moderated by Elizabeth Chodos of threewalls.
For those of you who were able to attend the opening for Turned Intos last Friday you may have noticed temporary sleeping quarters in the back gallery. One of the artists, Sarah Fuller has set up residence for the length of the show, turning the space into her own sleep lab, she will be cataloging her nights' rest with a pin hole camera and an audio diary. Visitors are asked to contribute to the project by taking home a pin hole camera and journal to record their dreams.
If you have any questions for Sarah about her project and how to participate, you can email her at email@example.com
Turned Intos will be up until December 20th.
