"Will Work for Love" Opens October 10th



Apparently my poetry bra (along with a work in encaustic called "Test Piece 4") will make an upcoming appearance in the exhibition Will Work for Love (aka, Movin' it, Framin' it) at SUNY Ulster's Muroff Kotler Gallery.  You will also be able to take a page from my latest manuscript of perfume poems home with you.  SUNY Ulster Artist-in-Residence and Curator Keiko Sono compiled work and personal items from a bunch of different artists she has done video collaborations with, and created this installation.

Will Work for Love is a blog documentation of Movin’ It and Framin’ It, an art installation at Muroff Kotler Gallery at SUNY Ulster County Community College. The show illustrates the richness and vibrancy of the arts community of the Hudson Valley, while actively contributing to such richness by making and strengthening connections within and beyond the arts community as we build the installation.

The project questions the separation between art and life, between individuals, and between work and love, and focuses on the connections rather than elements.   The installation will take the form of a three-dimensional and interactive diagram of our community, with collaborative projects produced at Flick Book Studio (a stop-motion animation studio in Saugerties) as the starting point.

Artists who made collaborative animation in the past, or in the planning of one, are presented in this show, not only by their animations and their artworks, but also by little segments of their lives. Visitors will see a transplanted corner of an artist’s studio, a sampling of wardrobe from another’s closet, etc., demonstrating that creativity is not confined to finished products. They will also see how we are connected in many different contexts—through schools, families, jobs, activism—creating a strong web of social structure.

The show will be interactive and informational, providing samples of different types of animation, video, and media communication, including a station where visitors make their own stop-motion animation.
