March 19th: nineRooms LIVEartINSTALLATIONS

This Thursday, March 19th, I’ll be participating in a group show featuring live art and installation. For this event I’ll be installing a video piece tentatively titled "vanity" (more on that later).

“nineRooms, LIVEArtINSTALLATIONS” features nine artists and their processes on exhibit for one night only.

Curator and artist, Melissa Stager of Susan Street Fine Art Gallery and the South Cedros Property Owners Association have joined forces to reveal the extraordinary underlying talents of live artists in San Diego. The exhibition will include installation and performance pieces by MiraCosta College professors, Yoshimi Hayashi and Anna O’Cain, and San Diego Artists Chris Warr, Hollis Swan, Benjalmin Eldworlds, Jessica Gannon, Joshua Bellfy, Justin Morrison, and David White, founder of Agitprop art space in San Diego.

The Installations are diverse and will vary between live performances of interactive process; artists creating in solitude who can be viewed through peepholes; and artists who are presenting installations documenting site-specific performance pieces. Artist, David White will be providing free legitimate tax preparation services for any viewer that comes with the required documents in hand. Musical entertainment will be provided by the engaging Pacific Northwest’s indie rock, low fi/country/folk band, ‘The Gift Machine,’ whose performance will be sandwiched by eclectic San Diego DJ, Nick Gaby.

“nineRooms, LIVEArtINSTALLATIONS” is a one-night event from 5pm–9pm that is expected to unite a large diverse crowd from both the San Diego and North County areas who are coming together to explore the engaging multi dimensions of live art.

This exhibition is in partner with Cedros Third Thursday Gallery Walk Night and the Cedros Blooms festival and will take place inside of:

444 South Cedros Avenue in the heart of the Cedros Design District in Solana Beach, CA
