The Jones Center
Community Room
Join us for a panel discussion with thirteen artists about the new artist exchange project transFIGURATION. This project is a collaboration between photographer Rino Pizzi and visual artists Jill Bedgood, Benito Huerta, Catherine Lee, Shea Little, Michelle Mayer, Wura-Natasha Ogunji, McKay Otto, Margo Sawyer, Shawn Smith, Jana Swec, Jade Walker, and Steve Wiman. Artists will initially sit for a portrait session, and then will receive a print to be damaged/destroyed in their own terms, with no limits or restrictions.For many of the artists this stage of the process will be a public performance or a “happening,” and presented by the Fusebox Festival (April 17–28, 2013). The event/performances will take place in various venues, including Big Medium/Canopy, The Off Center, AMOA-Arthouse at Laguna Gloria, and various sites downtown. At a later stage, artists will restore the damaged images. A final exhibition, including the initial photographs, a video documenting the evidence of damage or destruction, and the final reconstituted artwork, will be scheduled for the end of 2013 at a venue to be announced.
