The Brooklyn Artists Gym is Hosting Special Event for The BAG Fund: "The Ganesh Experiment: Live Music Naked Art."
Saturday April 4th, 8 PM $10 - Tickets at the Door
The Brooklyn Artists Gym : 168 Seventh Street, Brooklyn, NY 11215F or G train to Smith/9th or F or R train to 4th Avenue/9th St.
Inspired by the art happenings of the 60's and the Indian God of art and music
The Ganesh Experiment asks, What is the cycle of art? Where does one form of art end, and another begin? Where does the line between artist and spectator cross?
All proceeds go to The BAG Fund (TBF) is a non-profit that helps support the artist with three programs: the Single-Parent Artists Program, the Teenage Artist Program, and the Estate Art Program (helping families of deceased artists with their estate and body of work). The only space of it's kind in New York City, Brooklyn Artists Gym (BAG) is a truly unique studio and gallery facility in Gowanus that provides community and inexpensive studio and gallery space in a professional and creative atmosphere.
The Ganesh Experiment : 30 visual artists, 10 musicians, 3 installation artists, 1 performance artist, nude painted models, and guests will all become subjects of "The Ganesh Experiment" hosted by The Brooklyn Artists Gym.
As the improvised music unfolds in the center of our 4,000 square foot studio space the 30 visual artists will begin to work in a variety of mediums, drawing their inspiration from the unfolding soundscape and the crowd surrounding them.
An eclectic grouping of New York City's finest contemporary musicians will provide a continuous heartbeat of music.
In the heart of the gallery an octopus of media and reverberating sound will be built by installation artists Richard Tazzara, Dan Glass, and Eric Larsen
Adjacent to the gallery, performance artist Adina Bier will demonstrate how much the human body can be changed by it's environment
As the evening proceeds, the visual artists completed work will be moved into the gallery culminating in a final show that starts and finishes in one night. Spectators and guests provide the motive for creation. Everyone who comes to Brooklyn Artists Gym on April 4th will find themselves part of the experiment.
