QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development, is pleased to continue the presentation of A-Lab Forum in 2011.
Saturday, February 19 · 2:00pm – 4:00pm
CROSSING ART GALLERY
The program is a series of monthly discussions designed as an opportunity for artists, working in various media, to present their work, share their visions and ideas in relation to selected topics and concepts in the field of art production, collaboration, and critical thinking. Each forum consists of a presentation by selected artists, followed by a discussion period with the curator and attending audience. Participating artists are identified and invited by the curator / facilitator from a pull of entries for that month. The forums are open to the general public, and are free of charge.
On Saturday, February 19th, A-Lab Forum will present MEKANIKA. The forum focuses on the presentation of artists whose work deal with notions of machinery in visual arts. Selected artists (working in in painting, sculpture, video, illustration, photography, installation, and mixed media) explore notions of technology, mechanics, physical structures, and industry in their work. From 2D illustrations, to paintings, video, and interactive new media, selected works challenge traditional approaches in contemporary art. Organized by artist Hector Canonge.
