Shipping containers become a pop-up gallery on Krog St. this weekend while the Westside Arts District packs in a schedule of speakers. More after the jump.
"When "Convergent Frequencies" premieres Fri., Sept. 17, Matt Haffner's narrative wheatpastes will adorn the 45-foot-long, 4-ton steel shipping containers' exteriors, while stereo systems inside them will play Nat Slaughter's Old Fourth Ward and Little Five Points field recordings. Matt Gilbert will project videos onto a swath of an adjacent warehouse roughly the size of a small movie theater. Musicians from Oryx and Crake and dancers including Helen Hale of Dance Truck will perform on top of the containers. A food truck will sell hot dogs and refreshments. The entire art gallery will appear and disappear in a matter of days."
The Westside Arts District Art Stroll is packed with goodness this week. Flux Projects executive director Anne Dennington will be at Saltworks to discuss the upcoming FLUX 2010. Twin Kittens has new work from Michael Oliveri and artists from the Down the Rabbit Hole exhibition at Emily Amy Gallery will talk about their work.
