Thread: New York City!!
Date Posted: 2004-06-22 03:15:57
I'm just testing the forum out again with a quick note to all following the e-mail from Jane today...she's hoping to get us chatting. NYC is steamy with lots of free festivals around town. Unfortunately no beach and cool ocean breezes to dry the sweat beads!! My residency with ART START ends at the end of June and I feel as though I'm only just getting into it all. After having spent most of my initial two months here helping out with the organisations annual exhibition of kids artwork I'm pushing ahead with 2 self initiated projects. The one is a series of digitally manipulated images by a group of 4 young woman. They have each produced a visual narrative in response to a personal journey of choice. The images will be exhibited at the Metropolitan High School of NYC at the end of July. I am also starting a portraiture project with a group of 15 young people that participate in the Hip Hop Project at Art Start. They are going to combine self portraits and personal lyrics from songs they've written through the year. These images will be exhibited at the annueal fundraiser for the Hip Hop Project aswell as other events. An alternative to performance and another avenue through which storytelling can take place. I have tried to post long messages on this forum in the past and have had no luck so this is just a small taste of what's happening in the big bad apple for me!! Hope you're all well.
