The Bird Cage

The Bird Cage No.0

Opening Reception March 5th 6-10 PM

Local Artists Cory Weeks and Alison Sweet present The Bird Cage. Inspired from the infamous Bird Cage Theater in Tombstone Arizona and its late 19th Century wallpaper. The collaborators offer this new multi-media art exhibition featuring portraits of modern-day women revealing their provocative and often “wild” west personas in conjunction with their modern day lives.

Recent graduates from ASU’s Intermedia Art program Weeks and Sweet are alumni Artlink curators and both share a love for history, especially Arizona history and the state’s adventurous early women. They poke some aesthetic fun with the past displaying it in the beautiful and historic AE England building in downtown Phoenix’s new Civic Space.

Unpolished Exhibition

In this exhibition that examines modern day feminism I will be exhibiting my video Layers. This work examines the layers of typical stereotypes that are projected onto women by media, corporations, the community, as well as by women themselves. Information for the show can be found below.

UNPOLISHED FEMINIST ART EXHIBITION:

In 2007, galleries and museums across the country undertook a major reexamination of feminist art with exhibitions like MOCA LA’s “Wack: Art and the Feminist Revolution” and “Global Feminisms” at the Brooklyn Museum. These major exhibitions demonstrated that the feminist art movement is among the most influential developments in post-war art, and furthermore that it has undergone continual development since its inception in the1960’s. What is the legacy of this tradition for local living artists? What does feminist art look like in the 21st century? We are exhibiting all ASU SOA artists (faculty, graduate students, undergraduates) as well as local artists.”

Videographer for Jillian Mcdonald: Alone Together in the Dark

Today I worked as a videographer on Jillian Mcdonald’s video for her upcoming exhibition Alone Together in the Dark that can be viewed at the ASU Art Museum. This entailed filming vampires vs. zombies in the hot Arizona desert. Jillian is a very inspiring artist and it was a blast working with her.

Update: The Video from Jillian Mcdonald’s Exhibition has been added below.
