CALL FOR ART!

FUTURISM:  Art in the Age of Post Truth

This regional call for art is a follow-up to the 2016 DADA Soiree presented by C3Lab.  The theme “Futurism” could inspire references to the artists and architects of the revolutionary Italian art movement in the early 1900s who were fascinated by the problems of representing modern experience. Futurism celebrated advanced technology and urban modernity; it was committed to the idea of newness, and as part of this agenda its members wished to destroy older forms of culture.

Artists today might find parallels in our current situation, where radical ideologies are seeking to destroy established concepts of truth, objectivity, evidence, justice, and scientific rigor.

Opening Reception is Friday, November 10th from 7 to 10pm.  Exhibit will run through November 27th.

Multimedia Art Exhibit

Dia de Los Casi Muertos Exhibit

The exhibition pays homage to the traditional Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos, or “Day of the Dead,” a time when family and friends gather to remember and celebrate the lives of friends and family members who have passed away. 

Dia de Los Casi Muertos or Day of the Almost Dead is an ongoing multimedia project that explores the cultural differences between Mexican and American experiences with death and aging. Julio Gonzalez is a local Mexican–American artist that was born in the South, but raised with the tradition of Day of the Dead’s Catholic practices within his Mexican family. The aim of the project is for contemporary American society to examine their values by confronting the taboo of death – ultimately pushing us to appreciate the gift of life. 

Through video, sculpture, and photography, the 2017 iteration of the Día de Los Casi Muertos project will profile community members ages 30-40 of diverse backgrounds. Video interviews give participants the opportunity to talk openly and candidly about their experiences with death. Participants will have casts made of their faces which will be painted and photographed in a traditional Day of the Dead style and include objects from their personal lives.

The opening reception for “Dia de Los Casi Muertos” will take place Tuesday, October 31st from 6 to 10:30pm with live performances by local band, Nouveau Sud.  Closing ceremony includes musical performances from local bands and XOXO on Friday, November 3rd from 7:30 to 11pm.  Free Admission.  For more information, visit www.WonderWhatIf.com

Are We Humane

Figurative work that is drawn directly from the life going on around the artist, in the places they work and live, has the inevitable effect of creating a visual record of a city's literal and metaphorical landscapes, one that is unique to each artist. 

Mark Doepker has been a creator his entire life, and many of the works can be seen as time capsules through the image or titles which bear reference to specific events. 

Since 2014, Hannah Barnhardt has pursued drawing from life and urban sketching as a daily practice, compiling a visual archive of life, fashion trends, and the social scene of the Charlotte area, in bodies of work that speak to inequality, gentrification, and class division. Their overall hope is to promote a better understanding and appreciation for our fellow humans.

Opening reception at Gallery C3 is Friday, August 4th  from 7 to 10pm and will be on display through August 24thSpecial evening performances by James Lee Walker II.

ARCHITECTONIC

Our upcoming exhibit, ARCHITECTONIC, features new works by Sharon Dowell, Matthew Steele and Chris Neyen.  Through painting, sculpture, photography and installation, this thought-provoking show combines the similar perspectives and varying styles of three different artists as they've observed explosive commercial development in the Charlotte community.  The opening reception is Friday, April 7th from 7 to 10pm and will be on display through April 28th.

Physical structure is the commonality that binds this exhibition together.  Matthew Steele’s new sculptural series explores history, memory, nostalgia and how social architecture influences those things.

In her paintings and installation, Sharon Dowell questions the boxing in of other people and the harnessing and destruction of nature; at the end of the day, what is it all for?

Chris Neyen’s photography reimagines our structural identity, reflecting that architecture and infrastructure create our surroundings and affect the conditions of our collective consciousness.

Movie Screening for 1984

"It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen."

On April 4, 2017, almost 90 art house movie theatres across the country in 79 cities and in 34 states, plus one location in Canada, will be participating collectively in a NATIONAL EVENT DAY screening of the 80's movie 1984 starring John Hurt, who sadly died last month. This date was chosen because it's the day George Orwell's protagonist Winston Smith begins rebelling against his oppressive government by keeping a forbidden diary.

These theaters owners also strongly believe in supporting the National Endowment for the Arts and see any attempt to scuttle that program as an attack on free speech and creative expression through entertainment. This event provides a chance for communities around the country to show their unity and have their voices heard.

Join the Charlotte Film Society at C3Lab at 7:30 to support this national movement.
