UPCOMING PROJECTS @ SIXPACK PROJECTS
OPENING THIS SATURDAY!
BETA RELEASE: Experiments in video, sound + performance
Opening reception: Saturday, March 12, 6-9 PM
Concurrent with the Long Beach Downtown Art Walk
Organized by Jennifer Frias, Jeff Rau and Sixpack Projects.
Featuring the works of Georg Burwick, j.frede, JEFF & GORDON, Christopher O’Leary, and shea M gauer!
BETA RELEASE: Experiments in sound, video, and performance is a one-night-only event inviting the viewer to actively engage with a variety of time-based works. From JEFF & GORDON’s playful exploitation of filmic conventions, to Christopher O’Leary’s ostensive super-power “documentation” films. With shea M gauer’s sonic spill, j.frede’s electronic experiments in translating digital images into digital audio, and Georg Burwick’s collection of photographs of unfamiliar familiar stomping grounds. All these works offer explorations into the many ways evolving technology continues to shift our perceptions and the means by which we engage the world around us.
Also on view, public photo-murals by international street artist JR cover the exterior windows of the gallery along both Broadway and Promenade. This work was installed to celebrate the launch of his latest project, Inside/Out, on the occasion of his being awarded the prestigious TED Prize. The murals will be removed soon; this weekend is your last chance to see them!
AND COMING SOON…
PRESTON DANIELS: Neighborhood Watch | PATRICK STRAND: Archipelago
March 26 – April 30, 2011
Opening reception: Saturday, March 26, 6-9 PM
Long Beach Downtown Art Walk: Saturday, April 9, 6-9 PM
Organized by Jennifer Frias and Sixpack Projects
Sixpack Projects is pleased to present two separate bodies of work by two emerging southern California artists. Preston Daniels and Patrick Strand produce works that seize the humanization of architectural, communal and spatial elements occupying our modern environs. The artists’ re-contextualization of transcendental communities are realized through architectural foundations declining from their majestic poise (Daniels) or through fragmented drawings of multiple cities assembled together into one island (Strand). Both Daniels and Strand produce works that represent the physical changes reflected in our living spaces and how it embodies our everyday lives.
