Constructing the Future of Yesterday Opening Reception

Join us for the opening reception of Constructing the Future of Yesterday in our Middle Space Gallery. This show features a collection of work by the Deathbot Artist Collaborative. Deathbot Collaborative "supplies these creations to entertain, stimulate and distract.

Entertain: challenge your short attention span by contemplating the tedious details. There is whimsy here. There is play. 

Stimulate: realize your part in this as the viewer. If a tree falls in the woods… you are subjected to Deathbot’s resonance.

Distract: ignore your mundane concerns for the time you are here. The laundry can wait. This is your moment, seize it."

Flat File: Prints From the Herron Collection

The medium of printmaking and the Herron School of Art and Design have a long and storied history together, with the program tracing it’s roots back to the 1940’s. Through the decades the program has produced a number of nationally and internationally renowned artists, played a role in the reemergence of lithography as an art form and has hosted visiting artists in every stage of their careers. Flat File: Prints From The Herron Collection seeks to showcase prime examples of a medium that has helped shape the history of Herron and art in Indianapolis. The prints featured are examples of work produced by students and professional artists alike. The heavy impressions of etchings and the fluid marks and rich color of lithographs are characteristics of a medium that has long inspired a number or artists and viewers and lent itself to every era of history.

The closing reception will include live lithography printing.

Remix the Symphony at Cat Head Press

Classical meets unconventional.

Remix The Symphony is inviting artists of all disciplines and experience levels to a Remix Night at Cat Head Press: Printshop and Artist Cooperative. Remixing isn't just limited to musicians - we want to see how artists reinterpret classical music in their own style. 

Got the winter blues? Need to get out of the house? Want to vent? Create a collage, a print, a painting and enjoy a live DJ, food and drink with Cat Head Press: Printshop and Artist Cooperative

Stay for fifteen minutes or the whole time, we want to provide some inspiration for your next project. We'll provide materals - just bring yourself!

McKay Powers will provide a soundtrack that starts with pieces the ISO is playing in upcoming concerts, including The Firebird, Rachmaninoff, and more. But as the night goes on, he'll start incorporating some different interpretations of classical music. Who knows, maybe we'll end the night with a dance party.

All artists have the opportunity to submit what they make during this event to the Remix the Symphony 'zine, which will be distributed around Indy in March.

Use code REMIX50 for 50% off tickets to any classical concert at the ISO. Get tickets here: https://www.indianapolissymphony.org/season/2016-2017-season/classical
