Magic Lantern VII

Friday, August 30, 2019 - 7:00pm

Doors: 6:30 pm
Show: 7pm

Come gather with us for Magic Lantern's seventh run where 19 artists with the audience witness together unedited, unrevealed work that neither the public nor the artists have seen before.

Magic Lantern is a one-night only event that plays on old kindred gatherings around the slide projector. This past spring participants shot a roll of slide film and submitted their rolls, unprocessed. Developing and mounting them we reveal the photos for the first time, night of.

Vulnerability is thus celebrated in a multitude of ways, where everyone confronts their own challenges, their own perfectionism, their perception of themselves as creators, and their attachment to control in a supportive, fabricated space. We find beauty in these unexpected places, where unseen “mistakes” or errors would normally be omitted. This encourages audience and artists together to reconsider aesthetics and to consider subjectivity: appreciation may be found in the work that would otherwise be excluded from public view. By inviting folks from professional, emerging and non-artist backgrounds, we bridge an often-visible gap in the artist community. We further fill this gap by inviting artists and audience members together to experience the show, and to take part in the courage and tenderness of this one-night gathering.

Free and open to all
