Growth of a Foreign Entity is a collaboration between Kyla Culbertson and Nate Collins. Kyla creates alien-like ceramic objects, and places them in real and fake environments. Nathan then photographs them, and digitally manipulates the forms through content aware.

About the film (text from the Marfa Film Festival): Stubbs BBQ began as a humble bohemian haven for artists, musicians, and scoundrels in Lubbock, TX- 1968. In 1980 at the height of the restaurant's popularity, owner C.B. 'Stubb' Stubblefield and artist Paul Milosevich traveled from Lubbock to Nashville to cook BBQ for Johnny Cash...Before they left, they bought an 8mm camera and filmed their adventure. Their footage has never been seen... Until now.

There Is Only One Side: A Collaborative Vigil
Sep

There Is Only One Side: A Collaborative Vigil

When summoned to speak about the horrors in Charlottesville at the beginning of August, Trump denounced bigotry and violence "on many sides." 

As Jelani Cobb wrote in The New Yorker that same week, "When questioned about the rationale for Trump’s evenhandedness, the White House clarified that both the protesters and the counter-protesters had resorted to violence. This is notable in that the United States was once a country that did not see Nazis and those willing to fight them as morally equivalent. "

Friday, we gather to hold vigil for every life lost at the hands of systematic oppression, racism, and a society that too often chooses to look away. What has happened in Charlottesville is not the death rattle of an isolated radical group. This is the beginning if we are not vigilant. 

Please join us in shared pursuit as we showcase work by artist Patrick Quarm.

And as we hear works of protest, longing, and memoriam from the following readers and performers:

Kenna Neitch 
Apryl Lewis
Amelia Reyes
Catherine Ragsdale
James Villanueva
Victoria McReynolds
Curtis Bauer
Chen Chen
"ranney"

The readings will begin promptly at 8pm in Studio 4.

In conjunction with the event, the studio host and co-coordinator, Victoria Marie Bee, will be fundraising for Hurricane Harvey relief.

MOTORDROME: Photographs by Scott Campbell Cochran
Cochran has photographed the Wall of Death riders for many years nationally and has been granted more intimate access than most. With this close relationship, he is able to depict their life on the road and the symbolism of their culture. For many bikers the Wall of Death riders represent everything they wish to be; they make their living on their bikes and are free to roam the country.
