Set in the raw warehouse space of an old lamp factory, MAKE IT, BREAK IT, REBUILD IT is a two-week art happening featuring site-specific installations and performances that reflect society’s need to create, destroy, and reuse. This show brings together the work of over 30 artists and performer/choreographers speaking directly to the purpose of rebuilding -- not simply as it applies to physical objects but to the greater community. Artists examine the purpose of re-purpose through object-based media, structured and improvisatory performance, and audience-interactive installations that discuss society’s need to Make It, Break it, and Rebuild It.

The 25 visual art installations run the gamut of large scale audience-interactive woven sculpture (Tara Wosiski) to discreet 2-D and 3-D artworks (Ron Longsdorf, Jared Wood), from a technology-focused live twitter feed video projection (Jason Varone) to the tactile smashing and reassembling of bottles (Jenna Efrein) and of hand papermaking (Mary Tasillo), from exquisitely rendered depictions of discarded materials (Mat Tomeszko) to the construction of livable spaces from discarded materials (Mike Konrad, Christina Day).  Including artwork of nearly every medium -- from painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, light and space, and interactive installations--, the exhibition will be in a state of continual flux and progression over the course of two weekends.

The performances of Dance Amidst Art at MAKE IT, BREAK IT, REBUILD IT, part of the Philly Fringe Festival, are the largest series of collaborations between dancers and visual artists under one roof, occurring within the art installations as well as on stage.  Cross-pollination is a term that gets bandied about when artists from different disciplines are asked to collaborate, to digest and to respond to another artist or artwork in the process of their creative act.  At its root, cross-pollination expands the conversation between disciplines, and at its best, it creates new work that extends the boundaries and possibilities of both art forms.

Busy weekend!

This weekend was especially busy! Friday night was the opening for First Timer Solo Series: What Terri Aluise. A huge thanks to everyone who came out!

Then we wasted no time over the weekend on finishing the office we started earlier in the week.

Molly and Brynn got to work placing our lockers and they look awesome.

Our big wall (FINALLY) got drywalled and this guy taped it so insanely was amazing!

Olivia also found time to play with some of my work that I just picked up from the Schuylkill Center...!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!
