NewTown’s installation Private/Practice activates the intimate spaces adjoining the former Dance Studio-Gallery throughout the 2-day event with a play on performance. In The Practice Room, we’ve created a cozy den for anyone (professionals and aspiring) to reserve time to practice in front of an intimate audience of 1-4. Nothing rehearsed. In The Changing Rooms, twin dressing rooms will become a stage for a performance and installation by Noism. In Window Display, attendees themselves become the performance, both with a window into and out onto the space. Mark time with us in Private/Practice as this performance space transforms into public and private spaces.
Participating Artists: NOISM
NOISM is performing in The Changing Rooms from 10-2pm, Saturday. In one changing room, Elaine Parks builds an ever more intricate nest, a womb of retreat while in the adjacent changing room, costume, spectacle, selfies and signage dominate.
NOISM consists of members Neal Taylor, Elaine Parks, S A Griﬃn, and Mike Mollett. A group of artists who have worked individually and together over years not aligning with any ism, ﬂowing together and combining disciplines of poetry/ sound art, sculpture, graphics, found art, installation & non-performance/ performance.
The Practice Room performers list is speculative and unexpected, depending on Jeff Koons’ availability. But many signed up practicers include Janne Larsen, Conrad Romo, Alvero, Kira Vollman, the owner of the red pen illegible scribble. NewTown FAR Bazaar committee: Grace Amemiya, Susan Braig, Jim Bumgardner, Lorri Deyer, Lisa Mann, Leonard Rusch, William Quezada.
