Welcome to the Season 10 of The Invisible Dog Art Center. THANK YOU to the hundreds artists, technicians, interns, thousands of supporters and audience members, millions of followers for bringing us into our present, for their support in our past.
I’m thrilled to announce a new and fresh project: “La-Salle-A-Manger” (call me SAM). With Anne Mourier as a business partner, SAM will be a place to gather, meet, network, socialize, fall in love, smoke, agree, disagree, fall asleep, think, read, cook, drink, and eat indeed!
Lime Rickey International is “shipwrecked here from the future.” She performs fictional folkdances and sings to a homeland that is yet to exist. Lime Rickey International’s UNSTOPPABLE is embedded with political subnarratives and cultural confusions.
In Affordable Solution for Better Living, visual artist Théo Mercier and choreographer Steven Michel break the taboos of a society saddled with healthy living, placing a Kallax–a most peculiar totem–in the middle of a spotless space.
Dataatadata: Everything and Nothing is an immersive sound installation that centers around a 30 day performance and the creation of an intricate, large scale mandala.
50 States: Arkansas focuses on an extraordinary inter-racial same-sex relationship in a small Ozarks town in the 1920s and explores the murkiness of exhuming histories that were intentionally kept secret.
TheaterMatters, the unique live-theater-review series curated and moderated by Hunter College Theater Professor Jonathan Kalb, moves to The Invisible Dog!
Treiber Farms was founded in 2014 by Peter Treiber Sr. His son Peter Treiber Jr. joined him two years later and took on the role of manager in 2017. Their team practices sustainable, no till, beyond organic agriculture and their aim is to work with nature rather than against it, as stewards of the land.
To The Heart is another Niang’s exploration of childhood. Inspired by the powerful photographs of the bodies of refugee children lying on the ground, the project is a chance for the artist to speak to children and teenagers and show the joy that children express when they play (alone or in groups), running, falling, playing dead, or pretending to be reborn.
In 1954, Alice B. Toklas published her seminal culinary memoir, The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook, which became one of the best-selling cookbooks of all time. Now, two generations later, cabaret performer and sought-after private chef Daniel Isengart is coming out with a gay adaptation of the classic book.
Here at The Invisible Dog, all of our 25 artists are constantly experimenting with different styles, working with unique materials, and tossing around cool ideas. For one weekend a year, we allow the public to visit our studios and see what the artists of The Invisible Dog are up to.
In this live performance, Oliver Jeffers will recreate – at a far larger scale – a childhood game of his own invention. Beginning with a large roll of white paper, Jeffers will attempt to draw a world map upside down, labeling everything starting with north at the bottom, to the southern top.
For Important Portraits, Kalen Hollomon presents a series of hand drawn, enlarged copies of found amateur police and memory sketches that seek to explore relationships between perception and reality, intention and bias, communication and reproduction.
The final concert of the 2018 Look + Listen Festival will feature cellist Mariel Roberts performing Davíð Brynjar Franzson’s Cartography of Time. Patchtax, a Boston-based saxophone and viola duo, will perform the New York premieres of the winning works from their recent call-for scores to composers.
Emma Sulkowicz and Sean Harold will present a new composition for the electric guitar, percussion, and stereo-fixed media. Blending performance with percussion, Sulkowicz’s actions will feed Harold’s music, causing it to morph throughout the piece.
The installation consists of a series of glass orbs, suspended and connected in a hybrid style of shibari and ukidama, or Japanese fishing floats. Each orb holds a floating artifact of the artist’s relationship with a member of their community.
SEED / POND is an exhibit that seeks to bridge the divide between internal and external perception by offering large-scale algorithmic ink drawings to ponder as well as the opportunity to physically navigate through a gallery-wide floor drawing installation.
A small group of audience members surveils a dancer who is simultaneously: 1) watching reenactments of scenes from 2001: A Space Odyssey, 2) participating in a mash-up of some of the most canonical social science experiments of the last 50 years.
