“The Community Collaboration of an Energetic Fusion.”
Welcome, you are now a participant. It is our intention to activate the creative awareness of the CUNY York College Community. You may ask, what is your creative human potential? What can we learn from creatively collaborating with each other? What do we see and retain when there is a public display and means for collaborative creative expression? We, the artists have installed the beginning of an ongoing energetic exhibition that transcends its energy by inducing and inviting our York college students, faculty, community members and invited guests to participate in the development of the works.
That means you, reading this.
We love the contrast of all things natural versus those of synthetic nature. We would like to do something organic with our process. Process and participation are the key words. The gallery space is now filled with a diverse array of multidisciplinary works that interweave through both of our artistic processes and practices as artists. It is a collaborative survey and micro testing of sorts, but we don’t want it to stop just there. We want to induce you, and our community to participate by adding your reactions to the installation.
What do you see? What do you feel? What do you think? Add that! How may this happen? What exactly will happen? Again, This fusion of pre-installed works now provokes you as the viewer, it asks you to question the experience. It will challenge you to assess the effectiveness of non-verbal communication.
The works included and created in the gallery over our 5-week exhibition time display tangible examples of the multidisciplinary potentials of drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, collage, photography, video, and audio. The campus art gallery is the perfect space for this happening. It is a busy location, where people can easily see what is being created, and changing on a regular basis. This will raise awareness about “how ART in a public site specific space” can shape and help raise the overall level of human awareness, non-verbal communication, and a means of the overall creative potential. It also evokes an ENERGY to take creative action. So please join us by making a drawing, taking a photo, creating a sculpture, etching a print, enacting a performance or any other form of expression induced by your experience in the space, and then add it to the installation. We are as curious to see and experience the outcome as we hope you are. Please join us for one of the Energetic Fusion Art labs! Materials will be provided, but you can also bring your own!
