Neighborhood Arts Collective

Fundraiser event December 14 6-9pm

Works on view December 9-14 hours TBD

More about the organization:

We create art that is based on the lives of our neighbors. We do not have a one-size-fits-all approach to this, but we do follow a general process. First, we interview a subject “neighbor”, possibly multiple times, and try to get an accurate sense of what their life is like. We then sit down as a team and discuss the ideas and themes that stand out to us from those interviews. Each artist in the collective spends time developing their own ideas regarding what their contribution will be, and we discuss what media will best portray that neighbor and their life. Then we spend time (weeks, and possibly months) creating art, often with the subject neighbor’s input based on the ideas that have come out of this process of getting to know them better. What you see/read/hear is the product of that process of getting to know one of our neighbors.

This project came together out of a desire to know more about one another. To knock on the door of the people surrounding us and make tangible connections again. Neighborhood Arts Collective was created out of need, something we felt was necessary and important in a nation torn apart by differences and fear. What’s missing? Empathy.

Oxbow   Delirious Dreaming Pugilist and Other Stories Klara Glosova

Closing Reception: Saturday, July 14, 6 – 9pm

“The cornerstone of this project is a small print of a brick wrapped in brown butcher paper and named “Pugilist”. In fact, picture two bricks. The two main characters-the stars of the show-are a pair of bricks, one for each hand. They are not particularly stunning, monumental or impressive in their presence, nevertheless their weight is considerable – they can be used as a support or to hold things down, to break through or to build with. With these qualities in mind I want to build a new narrative for what it means to be a woman fighter.” -Klara Glosova
