Open Studios with David B. Smith, Charlie Watts, Ileana Tejada, and Brigitta Varadi

David B Smith makes fabric-based photo-sculpture that explores fantasy, loss, commodity, and connection in American culture. To gain access to the back-end of cultural memory, he playfully rearranges iconography using pseudo programming code - comprised of digital and analog fragmentation, accreditation, and reorientation. He isolates patterns, crosses wires, and entertains poetic interpretations, making the once familiar strange and unsettling, yet oddly cozy. READ MORE

Atlanta-based queer artist Charlie Watts seeks to create images not of this world, to use photography as a stepping-stone to the unknown realm just past the peripheral edge of consciousness. She creates images to bring imagination into fruition and provide a visual escape from the mundane to the fantastical. This spring, Watts finished an MFA program in photography with the San Francisco Art Institute after graduating with highest honors and a B.A. in art history and visual arts at Emory University. She has been a member of the Dashboard CO-OP and a resident with The Creatives Project, through which she teaches photography in underserved neighborhoods.

Performance by Andrew Rudin

Andrew Rudin (b. 1939) is a Texas-born composer of Swedish ancestry whose many contributions to the literature of electronic music brought him early recognition. Critic Michael Caruso, reviewing his Violin Concerto in 2007, remarked “Andrew Rudin has been an important presence in the local contemporary music scene for the past four decades.” His Il Giuoco was the first large-scale work for Moog Synthesizer, a U.S. representative in the 5th Paris Biennale. His synthesized music is heard in the sound-track of the film Fellini: Satyricon and his Tragoedia was the second of Nonesuch Records’ electronic music commissions, described by critic Alfred Frankenstein as “The best large-scale electronic work I have ever heard. In Andrew Rudin's hands the electronic idiom finally comes of age.”

Open Studios with M. Benjamin Herndon and Sol Pochat

M. Benjamin Herndon is a visual artist whose painting practice involves a laborious preparation of surfaces composed of gelatin, marble dust, and pigments on linen, which become luminous grounds for minimal silverpoint drawings. These material interactions, their subtle compositional intention and optical experience with regards to the interaction of light and movement, combine in a quiet conversation that provide for moments of discovery. Herndon received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2012, and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2016. In addition to Marble House, Herndon has been awarded residencies and fellowships at the Vermont Studio Center and the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. He currently lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island, and teaches in the printmaking department at RISD.

Sol Pochat is a visual artist and artistic director based in Buenos Aires. She received her BFA from School of Visuals Arts (SVA) in New York City and has exhibited her work in international galleries, both individual and collectively. Her work is recognized in the multiplicity of materials and new media, which refer to an aesthetic and poetic search between man and its relationship with nature. Sol is the founder of HILO, a contemporary art gallery in Buenos Aires, Argentina, focusing on site-specific and -responsive contemporary art. Since the opening of HILO in 2015, Sol has been engaged in helping fellow artists produce on-site commissions, while also developing her own aesthetic language as an artist.

In her most recent work she draws and paints images directly on film stock, a technique known as direct animation. Her experimental films explore relationships between surface, representation and rhythm.

Mining discarded ideas, failed dreams, and abandoned hopes, Slinko is preoccupied with giving graspable forms to ambiguities of human experience. Whether the projects take place at a market square in Marrakech, across Eastern Ukraine, or in a small town of Maine, Slinko lets real-life situations guide the work. Often inspired by specific cultural, and political contexts, Slinko merges storytelling, sculpture, and moving images to pay tribute to everyday resilience, solidarity, and humor. READ MORE

Donna Uchizono’s work is characterized by layered fragility, bold gestures and vivid imagery. Charting new territory with each venture, she creates a framework and original vocabulary specific to the individual piece. Uchizono is drawn to a redefined sense of ‘virtuosity’ that extends the markers of skill and excellence to push against human standards of patience, endurance and minute, intensely detailed movement.

Uchizono has created work for notables Mikhail Baryshnikov, MacArthur Fellow David Hammons, Pulitzer Playwright Paula Vogel, and neurologist and writer Oliver Sacks. READ MORE

Conversation with Mimi Hoang and Eric Bunge and Screening by Nadia Hironaka and Matthew Suib and Performance by John Roach

Mimi Hoang, AIA, is a principal of nARCHITECTS and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia University’s GSAPP (Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation). Along with partner Eric Bunge, she co-founded nARCHITECTS with the goal of addressing contemporary issues in architecture through conceptually driven, socially engaging and technologically innovative work. READ MORE

Eric Bunge, AIA, is a co-founding Principal of Brooklyn based nARCHITECTS, and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University. Eric received a Master of Architecture from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Architecture from McGill University. Prior to founding nARCHITECTS, he trained in New York, Boston, Paris, Calcutta and London. He has also taught at Parsons School of Design, R.I.S.D. and Columbia/Barnard Colleges, and as a visiting professor at Harvard University, Yale University, UC Berkeley and University of Toronto. nARCHITECTS, PLLC, is a Brooklyn based architecture office led by Principals Eric Bunge and Mimi Hoang. READ MORE

Nadia Hironaka & Matthew Suib employ the tools and conventions of moving-image culture to offer counter-mythical visions of our contemporary world. In doing so they re-construct existing narratives and envision new images that challenge popular understandings of History and Culture. The duo’s large-scale, often immersive moving-image installations use original and appropriated imagery and unique soundtracks to invert social conventions and scramble history. Using a collage-oriented approach, Hironaka & Suib collide imagery and narratives that encompass historical fact and popular fiction, as well as speculative futures to expose and undermine the relationship between popular media and political power.

John Roach is an interdisciplinary artist who engages the difficult and slippery questions provoked by sound. His work uses numerous strategies including sound installation, networked performance, participatory events, and collaborations with musicians, scientists, and glass artists. The circuitous and sometimes contrary approach he employs calls to mind one of his early influences, the author and provocateur Alfred Jarry. His results, like those of Jarry and his creation of Pataphysics, or “the science of imaginary solutions,” might at first seem ridiculous: flasks appear to bubble and pop on their own, pseudo-scientific experiments torque plaster with heat and cold, and glass percussion instruments shaped by patterns of human DNA are smashed to bits. His experimental and exploratory process, while fanciful, always aims to present an altered relationship between sound and its source. John’s work has been exhibited in venues in the United States, Belgium, Greece, Spain, Hungary, and Mexico and he has been awarded residencies at The Tacoma Museum of Glass (2017), Glazenhuis Museum (2016), Pilchuck Glass School (2015), NARS (2015), Triangle Artists Workshop (2015), and Wavefarm (2007).

Joshua, with a background in the culinary arts and hermeneutics, creates work that asks questions of consumption and ritual. Siblings who rarely got along, we now collaborate to facilitate interactive installations advancing deepened inhabitation, communication, and play. Our process begins in microcosm: mending our relationship offers first steps towards healing the world. Having inherited the ancestry of the colonizer and a vocabulary of love assuming possession, we’re imagining frameworks for moving and making that instead honor listening - through our bodies, our environments, and each other. READ MORE

Born in Sapporo, Japan, Shinohara started dancing and creating his own work while studying anthropology at International Christian University in Tokyo in 2004. After dancing and touring nationally and internationally with companies such as Nomade-s, Grinderman, and with his own company Team Punchinello, he moved to New York City in 2009 for further creative work.

It will be fresh, vibrant, salty, sweet, spicy, sour (sometimes with a touch of bitterness), and, Indonesian-specific, umami (hint: it's funky and shellfish-y). Today's Farm-to-Table Dinner is a presentation of flavors and cooking technique of Bali, a dream island, the island of Gods, the sacred island, among its many nicknames. Balinese cuisine involves fragrant, fresh ingredients that capture its tropical surroundings and ritualistic culture. Tonight's feast will feature a tropical-style dinner over banana-leaves covered long table. There will be Pig Roast and Whole Roast Duck along with bountiful vegetables all prepared Balinese style.
