I Know What You Did Last Summer @ St Cecilia, Brooklyn
I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER: a multimedia exhibition of diverse works created by an international group of artists who met one year ago at the summer artist residency Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in rural Maine. Brooklyn, NY June 4, 2010I Know What You Did Last Summer is a multimedia exhibition of diverse works created by an international group of artists who met one year ago at the summer artist residency Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in rural Maine. This July we reunite, transplanting our bodies, work, and ideas for five days to Brooklyn. With this exhibition we celebrate the creative exchange, transformation, experimentation, debate, and lack of self-restraint we experienced in the woods one year ago— as well as look to the future of the artistic community that continues to prosper. We combine our brains, talent, and guts in this ultimate collaboration, an exhibition of over fifty artists in a three-story former convent. I Know What You Did Last Summer presents work that is formal, theoretical, multicultural, multilingual, and raises relevant, contemporary questions. Don’t miss this opportunity to see this mass of fresh talent in one location this July.
I Know What You Did Last Summer will take place July 9 -14, 2010 at Saint Cecilia’s Convent in Brooklyn, New York. Schedule of Events Opening Reception & Performances, July 9th, 6 pm to 9 pm Video Screenings, July 10th, 3pm to 5 pm Guided Tours, July 11th & 12th, 2 pm & 5 pm About SkowheganCentered on a pristine, 300-acre forest and bordered by Lake Wesserunsett, Skowhegan is a ideal community for creating art. Free from the demands of the art market and academia, the residency encourages risk taking, experimentation, and contemplation. The Skowhegan experience, custom-made for each participating individual, is an intangible and mutable pastiche of influences, including, but not limited to, lectures from visiting artists, passionate group critiques, theoretical discussions and studio time, and local, small-town culture. Ideas congeal serendipitously, ignited by meaningful concepts during formal discussions, strolls through the woods, swims in the lake with new friends, and an impromptu paganish dances around bonfires. Skowhegan recreates its own community each summer through the contribution of each participating artist and their divergent viewpoints, virtuosity in their medium of choice, cultural backgrounds, and their unique experiences and personal histories.
