Hi Rhizome,

The Con Artist Collective is getting ready for America's most famous arts and culture bacchanal, Miami Art Basel 2014. We're joining forces with Brooklyn's Create Collect to produce "Festina Lente", our five day festival of art and performance. This marks Con Artist's second annual foray into the tropics in the name of Art Basel. We're looking to double the success of last year with a private gallery space in the heart of Wynwood and a line up of cocktail parties, DJs, movie screenings, and a collaborative mural that will grow throughout the event with contributions by artists and guests.

Make us a stop on your Art Basel tour this year. "Festina Lente" will be held in our gallery space at 116 NW 26th Street.

Dates: December 3rd to 7th
AT: 116 NW 29th Street, Miami FL 33127
12.03.2014 Wednesday 6 to 10 /// Opening Party with DJ Rage Johnson
12.04.2014 Thursday 6 to 10 /// Performance by Ale Velasco
12.05.2014 Friday 6 to 10 /// Cocktail Party w/ music by Pirate Stereo

EVENT

Action Figures: Objectified


Dates:
Tue Nov 25, 2014 19:00 - Sat Dec 06, 2014

Location:
New York , New York
United States of America

“Action Figures: Objectified” showcases a special niche of artists who create sculptures inspired by the toy industry. These artists blend pop culture kingpins, ‘80s cartoon superheroes, low budget anime, and happy meal freebies into unique, ultra-cool handmade sculptural objects. Often these sculptures are cast and packaged to reference the toys you loved as a kid in a totally new context.

As we anticipate a large attendance for this show, Con Artist will host an invite-only opening on Wednesday, November 26th that permits an early viewing of the artwork. We will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday and re-opening Black Friday with another chance to view all the awesome, toy-inspired pieces (a great opportunity to find unique holiday gifts).


EVENT

American Identity 1.0


Dates:
Wed Oct 29, 2014 19:00 - Wed Oct 29, 2014

Location:
New York , New York
United States of America

What does an American look like? It depends on who you ask. The Con Artist Collective shares its take on this nation’s populace with “American Identity 1.0”, a collection of portraits of American people. These portraits range from the traditional to the avant-garde and each gives a small slice of contemporary American humanity. They explore the schism between a white-washed history portrayed by the media and the reality of defining yourself in a national culture.

It’s strangely appropriate that the show is curated by a foreigner. Gonzalo Sepulveda was born in Chile, but has a long love affair with the United States where he has lived for more than a decade. “American Identity 1.0” presents a critical view of the American experience from an outsider’s perspective.


EVENT

Ephemera


Dates:
Wed Oct 15, 2014 20:00 - Wed Oct 15, 2014

Location:
New York , New York
United States of America

Con Artist presents "Ephemera" an expression of the ever-changing states of life, society, love, and pop culture. Named for all things whose existence is short, the artists of “Ephemera” present visions of longing, nostalgia, and decay on a profoundly intimate scale.

“Ephemera” features work by Gabriel Ventura, Daniel Lamanna, John de la O, Mike Dreeland, Lädy Millard, Ernst Bachinger, and Erica Schreiner.


OPPORTUNITY

Art Factory presents Octoberfest/Building Bridges 2014


Deadline:
Sat Oct 11, 2014 11:00

Location:
Paterson, New Jersey
United States of America


Over Columbus Day weekend October 11,12 Art Factory will host a conference of community partners in the fields of art, design, government, public education, business and civic engagement. Each community group will be given a booth within the Art Factory (an arts center residing in Paterson’s historic textile mills) where they can present what their organization is about. There will be programs and events throughout the weekend to encourage collaboration, engage community partners, raise public awareness and promote innovation in various fields of sustainable design and historic preservation.

The more literal translation of ‘Building Bridges’ will manifest itself in a tree house park linked by rope bridges set in the backyard of the Art Factory abutting the Great Falls National Park. The tree house park would be designed by professionals, constructed by community volunteers using materials donated by community partners and open to the public during regular park hours.
