CINEMA ADAMS TURNS HVCCA INTO AN OPEN STUDIO
Peekskill, NY - The iconic Def Jam Records artistic directors Cey Adams will transform the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) into an open workshop room as part of his forthcoming artists' residence. Cey Adams will create the last work at the HVCCA before his one-man show Pop Revolution on April 14.
From April 6 to 8, during the normal opening times of the museums, guests can observe Cey at work, witness his work and simply talk to him. It' really a unique opportunity for the locals to talk to one of the most acclaimed performers to break out of the hip-hop traditions. During his time in Peekskill, Cey will also guide Summit Academy student work on a shared wallpap.
The Pop Revolution opens at the HVCCA on 14 April from 17-19 hrs. Peekskill Mayor Andre Rainey, alias DJ Noodle, will be responsible for a hip-hop sound track.
Exhibitions in Peekskill, Art in Plain English
The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in Peekskill is surrounded by a bunch of gleaming silvery screens that seem to stagger in the outwind. At the bottom of the walls, as if it were rain from above, there are vertical silvery characters to create words: All of the more than 70 works in "Word" contain text: individual characters, fat words, puzzling propositions, provoking propositions or story fragments. What does this mean?
" At some point in Bill Schuck's "Someday" the characters of the work' titles are covered with weed, which will increase in the course of the show. "In " Word" 55 artist between 20 and 80 years old are represented. Mrs Kimpton said that the text carved into her screens comes from some of the more bloody parts of the Old Testament and that the more elevating words on the walls are made up of single characters from these verse.
"She said during the opening of the show last months: The parasols drop characters to pour out the soundbites. Visitors to the museum can think about the intangible meanings of the term "fair", which can be found in each of Inguna Gremzde's 12 small round pictures with an empty trolley in an infinite mall.
Further disturbing events are recorded in the centre's galery, which is illustrated in a row of vivid photographs portraying the backs of anonymised persons. These are new entries to "The'I'm Tired' Project", a social-medial initiative that sheds light on the damaging consequences of discriminating statements made together.
Every participant's statement begins with "I'm tired of...", with the results on breed, sex, health, policy and ancor. So far, the Facebook page "I'm Tired" has over 32,000 fans from more than 45 different nations, with almost 65 photos that have triggered lively on-line dialog. Nick Astbury, a UK Assistant General Consultant, presented the prize to the couple at the Word opening (Ms Evans, who is now working full-timers and can' t move, took part in Skype).
"The" I'm Tired" project will run from May 1 to July 31 at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, 1701 Main Street, Peekskill. Further information: hvcca. org or 914-788-0100.
