(noun) The gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form.
There is nothing more bonding than witnessing process. In our upcoming event, ev•o•lu•tion, our featured artists open themselves up at their most vulnerable stages: the moments of mistakes, moments of erasure and trying again, creating a palpable atmosphere of trust and connection.
ev•o•lu•tion is an immersive gallery experience we host with The Creators Collective in which three poets collaborate with visual artists to create new work inspired by one another’s art and artistic process. Each poet shares an unfinished poem--something they still consider a draft. We then share the poems with photographers who take photos based on the poetry. This collaboration culminates in a gallery event where we display the poems and photographs and invite three artists to create in real time based on the work being shown.
The poets will then return to their original poems and revise their work drawing inspiration from the newly created art. The event ends full circle by returning to the original inspiration and highlights the power of the process and artistic creation.
ev•o•lu•tion celebrates not just art, but the artistic process, and provides an opportunity to witness creation. It is a behind the scenes look at how art is inspired by many influences and it reminds all of us the role we play in creating art. We hope that after witnessing this event you will walk away with a new energy and inspiration to create your own art.
We are thrilled once again have the opportunity to host ev•o•lu•tion with The Creators Collective on Saturday, April, 29th at Halyards Bar 406 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215.
