Barnstorm: The Cabaret Re-Imagined, Re-counted.

Awesome weekend! Barnstorm was a huge success, and you definitely missed out if you weren’t able to make it. I’ll let some pictures do the work:

Clare Johnson’s post-it note project, chroicalling the last five years of her life through nightly, poetic marks on post-its.

Easily my favorite musical performance of the night: Brian Cervino

Thousands of Cuts

Here’s a  peek at the new work I’m in the middle of making for the upcoming Barnstorm: the Cabaret Re-imagined happening in a couple of weeks.

My little (actually here, life-size) girls have gone from tattoos to scarification!

Full photos soon to come!

Barnstorm: the Cabaret Reimagined

I’m proud to say that I’ll be participating in a new arts event in Seattle called Barnstorm (barnstormcabaret.org).

[ Barnstorm is a lively gathering place – designed specially for contemporary artists and provocateurs – destined to open its doors in downtown Seattle in May 2011. Channeling the original European cabarets of the late nineteenth century, Barnstorm will transform an empty warehouse space into a cozy home for diverse performance and installation works that challenge social and cultural conventions. ]

Barnstorm launches

  • May 5-7 from 6 p.m. – 2 a.m.
  • at 1927 Third Avenue
  • in a volunteer-built, brand-new arts venue in the city of Seattle.

I’ll be hanging a number of large, original, raunchy drawings, and will be showing alongside a number of fun performance pieces and musical works. Being a three-day event, 6pm-2am each day, with only a $5 cover, what sounds to be a somewhat unpredictable and spontaneous art scene – how can you resist? If you live in the Seattle area, please come by – I think it’ll be fun. :) Oh, and apparently they have a bar, too, for you alcoholics.
