Reinventing our relationship with this colorful tradition, YARN weaves together wool graffiti artists, circus performers, and structural designers into a visually-striking look at the women who are making a creative stance while building one of modern art’s hottest trends.” – a documentary film by UNA LORENZEN, Official and Selected film at SXSW 2016.

Artist Talk: Paintings in Paper
Fresh A.I.R. Gallery
Friday July 29th
Please join Fresh A.I.R. as Elizabeth Haworth-Wagner discusses her painterly collages of natural fiber paper, which explore “connections between physical and spiritual worlds, including questions about life, death, the afterlife, and rebirth.” These themes became especially prominent in Elizabeth’s work after the sudden passing of her husband, when she began to struggle with depression, PTSD, and Broken Heart Syndrome. “Much like writing in my journal, my artwork has been my companion in recovery,” she writes. “Without it, I’m unsure that I would be alive today. Through art, I have found that there is always hope.”
Opening Reception: Back to the Future II
Friday July 29th
7- 10 p.m.
“Today everything exists to end in a photograph.” Susan Sontag…Sontag made this observation in 1979. Thirty-seven years later, the same concerns are continually being raised. The usage of the photographic medium has come to the forefront of our everyday encounters. A viewer becomes complacent in the absorption of imagery rather than questioning the truth of what they are seeing. In the absence of truth, new meaning is generated. How do artists address this proliferation of images in their artistic practice? Three artists who start from the same set of photographic concerns address these issues of representation.
“All I know is what’s on the Internet.” Donald Trump
“Back to the Future Part II” features new works from Chris Cox, Kara Gut and Harrison Moenich. The exhibition presents a series of photographic and sculptural installations that address the loss of the physical, and our societal migration to mediated and virtual space.
“Back to the Future Part II” will be on display at M I N T July 29 – August 12.
Il Gabinetto Segreto (The Secret Cabinet)
The Vanderelli Room
Saturday, July 30th
Gabinetto Segreto is the first international erotic themed art event to be held at The Vanderelli Room, in Columbus, Ohio. Curated by Jay Mueller and Alan Reeve, the show will represent a time when cabinets were built to house art from ancient Rome, accessible only to, “people of mature age and respected morals,” as it was deemed too pornographic for the general public.
Attendees to the show will be totally immersed in an erotic experience like no other, involving all of the senses. Over 70 artists were individually reviewed and selected to display some of the most sensually titillating, visually stunning, humorous and at times even shocking artwork ever to be displayed in one gallery. In addition, seven nationally recognized, exemplary guest artist have been invited to headline the event: Marcus Deleo, Kate Morgan, Alan Cottrill, Randi Channel, Aleksander Marek Korman, Mandy Cook, and Paul Richmond. It all promises to be the most talked about art event of the year. Because of the mature nature of the show and subject matter, IDs will be checked at the door and no one under the age of eighteen will be permitted entry.
Exhibition runs July 30th-August 22
