Enjoy a fun evening of open studios and live entertainment at this casual, FREE public event. Stop by for any or all of it, and enjoy a night you won’t find anywhere else in the Twin Cities.
An artist’s creativity can push the limits in directions never before attempted, or make the well-practiced feel fresh and vital. This March, we will see both….
March 3rd (First Thursday) from 5-9pm on the 2nd floor of the Solar Arts Building
Local female artists in order to form a more perfect union, will do an interpretation of “Dropping the Estrogen Bomb” by the Guerrilla Girls.
Estrogen: A Love Story or How I Leraned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Live music, painting, installation, textiles, video, fun and radical thought provoking shenanigans.
The Players in no particular order:
Paula Cisewski is the author of poetry collections Upon Arrival, Ghost Fargo (selected by Franz Wright for the Nightboat Poetry Prize), and The Threatened Everything, forthcoming later this year through Burnside Review Books. She has been awarded fellowships from the Banfill-Locke Center for the arts, the Jerome Foundation, and the Minnesota State Arts Board. Misplaced Sinister, her first collection of mostly prose, recently appeared through Red Bird Chapbooks.
Medicinall has been seen sporting paint brushes, scissors, turntables, drum machines, sewing machines and any other tool, that one can imagine. She has performed in many clubs and dark warehouses through the years. House music is her mistress and vinyl collecting is her addiction. She also loves working in multimedia and snuggling with kittens.
DJ Miss Elaine Eos has been monkeying around with sound arts since before she wore a bra. Vocalist, hand drummer and DJ, she comes at music from all angles. Her “miscellaneous” DJ style lends itself well to ambient chill rooms and long pirate radio sets, but she can also rock a dancefloor with deep, sexy, house music.
Jameen Lauck will be showing a few pieces of her drawing medium. Back in the day, she was a full blown Techno Goddess, but now she throws her energy at the theatre. When she is not on stage acting out her angst with Green Tea Productions, she is hanging out at Old Gem Theatre and bouncing her grandchild around town.
Jes Reyes is an interdisciplinary artist, curator and arts administrator. Recent photography and film/video art of hers has exhibited with Artists in Storefronts, Altered Esthetics, Made Here, and the Walker Art Center. For this event, Jes presents a new silent video that explores what is beneath the skin.
Shannon Crabtree is a sassy photographer with a gift for lighting. She will be photodocumenting the shenanigans.
Guerrilla Girls Twin Cities Takeover is a celebration of the Guerrilla Girls’ 30th anniversary as an activist art collective.
The first project of its kind for the Guerrilla Girls and the largest arts collaboration of Twin Cities organizations to date, the Guerrilla Girls Twin Cities Takeover aims to inspire individual and collective activism by inviting the artist group to create new artwork and connect with the Twin Cities through youth engagement and community-wide events.
The public moments of the project launched in January 2016. “Estrogen: A Love Story or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” is only one facet of the Guerrilla Girls Twin Cities Takeover—a multisite, citywide festival— for one week in February and March 2016
