Tue, Aug 20, 2019 6:00 AM - Tue, Aug 20, 2019 7:00 AM @ Green Men Art Gallery

Practicing Buddhist Meditation since 1986, Orlando Gustilo is sharing his knowledge with others on Tuesdays at Green Men Art Gallery.

Orlando’s approach is based on both his experience and a continuing-to-evolve understanding of Buddha’s teachings.

Those who commit time and effort to practicing these simple techniques will notice a change in the perception of oneself and of others living.

Unlike many other teachers, Orlando’s teachings stem from scholarship and academic studies of tradition.

Intuition, emotion and imagination are great but they have to be balanced, in Orlando’s view, by objectivity, reason and logic.

Fri
Fri, Aug 30, 2019 8:00 PM - Fri, Aug 30, 2019 10:30 PM @ Indiana University Cinema

Indy Convergence’s newest initiative is mobile, non-invasive, arts programming along the shores of the White River. A Rising Tide’s first season will feature five interdisciplinary, collaborative performances this summer. Each performance will be an unexpected adventure employing an all-terrain stage or floating stage to bring Indy audiences to the banks of the White River.

SHOWS:
-June 20, 6pm Tony Ducan, internationally renowned hoop dancer followed by a nature hike. Who knows, you might just run into some of Indianapolis’ most talented artists enjoying an impromptu theatrical and music jam session

-July 19, 8pm “Sweet Palace Bistro”, our debut performance on the floating stage. The Palace and Sweet Poison Victim will light up the night with their soul, rock, and world beats

–August 30, 8pm “Strings, Reeds and a Flicker in the Woods” Forward Motion will be joined by The Fonseca Theatre Company and local professional dancers for a live collaborative performance in the woods.

September 28, 2pm “Down to the River” an afternoon of Bluegrass and Gospel following the annual White River Alliance Dragon Boat Races.

-October 5, 8pm “UnNamed Productions” Kick off fall with a staged reading of a new horror-thriller under the bridge.

A Rising Tide is made possible through an initial grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust White River Fund and Reconnecting to Our Waterways, with additional support by the Arts Council and the City of Indianapolis. Tickets are available https://indyconvergence.ticketspice.com/arisingtide or www.indyconvergence.org/art

Only 50 tickets per performance are available.

These are outdoor events that require some walking. Attendees should wear shoes appropriate for walking, bring a chair or blanket for seating and bug spray! Each event is in a different location along the river. Attendees will be notified by email and/or phone call about the exact location the week of the show. This is largely due to changing river levels that affect each playing space. Please send all questions to [email protected]

Sept. 6 — Jan. 11
In this new exhibition, New-York-based multi-media artist Saya Woolfalk explores our understanding of the human condition — a state of affairs governed by seemingly unavoidable conflicts such as birth, growth, and death. This show explores how technology has allowed us to ease our suffering by making change less difficult and transformation more enjoyable. Perhaps the ultimate human technological advancement would be the elimination of mortality by extending human life indefinitely in a biological, digital, or other virtual state. Recent advances suggest our species may already be on the cusp of achieving this evolutionary landmark.

Woolfalk’s exhibit at Tube Factory includes her signature installations, sculptures, prints, video art works, and the works of artists who influence her practice. It builds on one of her first projects, “No Place” (a play on the translation of the word utopia), where she collaborated with filmmaker and anthropologist Rachel Lears. Both then in their mid 20s, they invited people into Woolfalk’s studio to talk about their ideas of utopia and created work from there.

“Similar to the way you would construct a folktale, we took these ideas and we constructed the culture of the NoPlaceans. People would come to the studio, put on costumes and enact the things that they were imagining,” says Woolfalk who created a six-chapter ethnographic film about this future utopian world based on people’s visions.

To explore the conceptual boundaries of this cultural moment, this also led Woolfalk to create a fictional transhuman species known as “the Empathics”, which she describes as a race of women who are able to alter their genetic make-up and fuse with plants. “If you have a utopia, then how do you actually make that utopia real? I worked with biologists at Tufts University to think about what in nature could occur in order for people to mutate to become more like plants.”

Woolfalk’s Tube Factory installation will extend the story of “the Empathics”, blending multi-media aesthetic phenomena, spirituality, cultural hybridization, capitalism, technoscience, and artificial intelligence to conjure a broad network of interconnecting philosophical strands. Informed equally by science fiction and anthropology, the morally ambiguous future that the exhibit shares is open to the interpretation of its viewers. “Going from modularity to monumentality is how I approach my practice. I work in ways that are incredibly small and I also work in ways that are incredibly big. The work functions like collage.”

Should we fear the world Woolfalk and other transhumanist artists are mapping? Should we embrace it? Should we shrug it off as a Pollyannic fantasy, doomed by the human idiot factor? Woolfalk seems to be implying a potentially disturbing fourth option: Some of us — particularly those with special status or outlandish means — have already started to transform. Is this art, or a warning shot across the cultural bow of the human race?

About the artist
Woolfalk (b 1979, Japan) is a pioneer within an emergent, international aesthetic movement examining transhumanism — a theoretical belief that humans will mobilize technology to transcend their biological limitations and evolve into a non-human, or “posthuman” race. With each body of work, Woolfalk continues to build the narrative of The Empathics and questions the utopian possibilities of cultural hybridity. She has exhibited at museums, galleries, and alternative spaces throughout Asia, Europe and the United States including solo exhibitions at the Montclair Art Museum, Montclair, NJ (2012); the Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, VA (2014); the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco (2014); SCAD Museum, Savannah, GA (2016); Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, NY (2016); Sheldon Museum of Art, Lincoln, NE (2016); the Mead Museum of Art, Amherst, MA (2017) and group shows at the Studio Museum in Harlem; MoMA PS1, Long Island City, NY; the Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA., the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, among many others.
“When I started making work it was very important that it was not autobiographical,” says Woolfalk. “The work is not about me at all. The work is about talking to people about their ideas and trying to understand what’s going on in the world then taking that material and adapting it into installation based spaces that people can experience.”

Made possible by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and The Efroymson Family Fund.

Part of the Social Alchemy Series, this exhibition is in partnership with the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art.

Lucas Waterfill:

Lucas Waterfill aka “the best writer that can’t write.” With cunning wit and his impeccable timing, Lucas pulls from all aspects of life speaking on his own personal experience with his disability while still relating to all audiences.

“Growing up Crippled means that on a daily basis you are faced with ignorant statements and ignorant expectations. Sarcasm and wit are the only ways I know how to disarm that ignorance. My family has also influenced my humor. They taught me not to take life too seriously and to follow what makes me truly happy. Since I can remember I felt most comfortable being the center of attention. In 2014 I began to do stand-up comedy. And right away I was addicted. Stand-up comedy combines my passion for performance and my need to make strangers laugh at the absurd moments in my life. Since 2014 I have honed my ability to deliver a joke and to adapt to any situation onstage. I’ve traveled across the country, been in many festivals and been fortunate enough for one of my videos to reach almost 2 million people.”

Mark Dippel:

Mark Dipple is a unique, quirky, creative, fun, poetic, experiential, solo artist. What instruments does he play? …guitar, xylophone, hand drum, bucket drums, triangle, and more. He has sincere, poetic lyrics and an intentional, rhythmic delivery. His tunes are quick-whited, catchy and real. His performance is laid back and in your face at the same time.

According to the Joyful Noise staff, “Dippel is hands-down our weirdest co-worker at Joyful Noise. Mark started working as an unpaid intern way back in January of 2015. At the time, he had recently decided that he hated his regular job, so he up and quit – opting instead to spend his time working for free for a tiny indie label… Both as an artist and as an individual, Mark is incapable of pretense, and is impervious to the pressures of social norms.”

Gabriel Akre is an Indianapolis artist and senior Painting and Sculpture major at the Herron School Art + Design. His work has been exhibited in the Barnes & Thornburg and Frost Todd Brown law firms in downtown Indianapolis, as well as two exhibitions in Florence, Italy. His work is heavily inspired by the created world around him, particularly the places he’s traveled, giving high attention to atmosphere, color, light, and a deep sense of space.

This show is the first StorageSpace Artist Residency Exhibition. Gabriel Akre worked in the studio all summer and created this body of work and every work in the show was created during that time.

The title “The Space in Between” indicates the time which the work was made being in between semesters where there is little intellectual or creative obligation, the atmospheric space that many of the paintings display, and even the space between the viewer and the work itself.

ArtSparkle is the Indianapolis Art Center’s end-of-summer party that starts in our galleries and spills out under the stars into #ArtsPark’s natural splendor. With one-of-a-kind art experiences, a special first look to our newest exhibition, specialty food and drink, dancing, and fun, ArtSparkle is a party with purpose and an exclusive preview of the coming year at the Art Center.

For its 14th year, the theme for ArtSparkle is Chroma. Chroma is the intensity of color, so come wearing striking hues and eye-catching patterns as we take cues from Kandinsky and Klee and art eras long past. Explore your vibrant side and dress to impress.

Coinciding with our Fall Exhibition Opening, the night provides an opportunity for donors, the community, and philanthropists of all kinds to interact at our most important fundraiser.

Expect an exclusive first look at the Art Center’s fall exhibition series: including the group show “Chroma” and solo exhibitions by Jen Broemel and Jamie Lynn Williams. Interactive art activities inside the Art Center’s studios. Specialty food and drink provided by MBP Catering, Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering, Pinnacle Catering Group, Mallow Run Winery, and Sun King Brewery. Live entertainment by Endless Summer Band.
Silent and live auctions featuring locally made artwork and unique Indianapolis experiences.

Looking to add a bit more sparkle to your evening? Beginning at 6:00 PM, the VIP Hour offers a variety of benefits for ArtSparkle, including early access to the event, specialty drinks, premier parking, and the opportunity to meet the exhibition artists.

All proceeds benefit the Indianapolis Art Center and provide critical support of the institution’s groundbreaking and award-winning exhibitions, which are open to the public free of charge seven days a week, as well as to classes, outreach and other community programs.

On August 10th, Big Car and SoIndy will host a volunteer day of street painting on Shelby Street in beautiful Garfield Park! Join us in the effort to slow traffic on Shelby Street, making it safer for all modes of transportation and encouraging use of neighborhood assets like the Pleasant Run Trail. We will use our collective creativity to bring fun and colorful designs to the street and biking/walking paths. Don’t worry, we will be safely slowing traffic as we work! Come prepared to paint!

Meet at Tube Factory artspace (1125 Cruft St) at 10am.

Share this event with your South Indy neighbors!

About the Shelby Street Tactical Urbanism project:
This project is about improving interconnectivity and supporting diverse transportation modes on the near southside of Indianapolis. The Red Line will significantly change the modality of Shelby Street. Both north and south bound traffic will go from two-lane to one-lane traffic. The existing turn lanes will be gone, forcing everyone at intersections to be extra cautious of buses and their passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists, scooters, and cars. Thanks to a grant from the Indiana State Department of Health, we are able to make Shelby Street safer for all forms of transportation, to communicate transportation routes that may be safer but unknown to residents, and to help other communities implement traffic calming efforts through a traffic-calming toolbox created by Big Car.

‘Meat Shoot’ is a project by Braydee Euliss that explores an often integral part of rural culture by the same name.

Braydee Euliss is an artist and artist advocate who splits her time between Muncie and Indianapolis, IN. She received her BFA in Sculpture from Ball State University School of Art in 2011. Previous and ongoing projects include ‘On the Mark, for the City’ with We’re Trying Collective, ‘Case Studies’, Final Fridays at the David Owsley Museum of Art, and WORN Jewelry.
