Friday, January 27, 8-11 p.m. $25 / $20 Members
Be part of the art at the first ever Oliver Herring’s TASK party in Baltimore! Taskers are encouraged to make up a task, place it in a community TASK box, and pull out a task to carry out before creating another task, and so on. Supplies and props (bubble wrap, tin foil, vintage clothing, etc.) will be provided with body painting by Bright & Shining and music by DJ Isabejja to inspire creativity!
Internationally acclaimed artist Oliver Herring, whose work Areas for Action is on view at the BMA, created the first TASK party in 2002 and has organized TASK events around the world. Tasks have varied from ask to have an interesting conversation with a visitor you don’t know to having the entire room hold hands and sing New York, New York. There are no rules or limitations.
Interdisciplinary artist, olfactory spelunker and cobbler of situations Laure Drogoul will bring her work “Teetering X Tottering (On the Brink).” This kinetic sculpture invites YOU to balance movement that triggers an audio response.
Admission includes one complimentary drink or food item from Alma Cocina Latina; entry to the Matisse/Diebenkorn exhibition (regularly $17.50); a talk on Areas for Action by Senior Curator of Contemporary Art Kristen Hileman; and entertainment by sound artists Matt Muirhead & McKenzie Ditter of Canopy. This event is for adults age 21 and older.
