...And it's now officially online. The first art exhibition I've had in a while which I'll be sharing with one of my fave NZ artists Hannah Salmon A.K.A - Daily Secretion. The show will be up for a month. The opening nights are gonna be pretty special with performances from Unsanitary Napkin, Wolfskull (first ever shows outside of Dunedin since their birth c.2004), Contenders and Ducklingmonster along with a side-show on Saturday the 4th with Vow Cave, Cja and Grvdggr.

I've devoted well over half a year of planning, crippling self-doubt, yelling at computers and scrapping a multitude of ideas for this exhibition. I'm so pleased with what I have whittled my visual creations down to and the discourse I hope the works unravel. More text about mine and Hannah's artworks are in the event description.

Am very much looking forward to catching up with many friends and family, talking about things and hearing some tunes """"

"Art is not supposed to change the world, but to change perceptions. Art can change the way we see the world."- JR

JR has always been one of my favorite artists, creating powerful, yet simple public art with a message in some of the toughest places around the world. His huge portraits of faces, eyes, people pasted on trains,monuments, in favelas, cargo ships, abandoned buildings, streets, and rooftops have raised awareness and address themes of commitment, freedom, identity, dignity, immigration, women's rights and our shared humanity.

So it was a rare treat to visit this show, "Horizontal" at Perrotin Gallery, in New York City that  takes us behind the scenes of his process and includes mechanical sculptures and video projections. Also on view his amazing short films, including Ellis, starring Robert De Niro, a moving film about an abandoned hospital on Ellis Island and the story behind the portrait of the baby boy peering over the American border with Mexico.

“Art changes the frame of reference.” Proud to be affiliated with this powerful organization that’s challenging us all to communicate on a deeper level.

Repost from @forfreedoms - Throwback to our town hall “Can Art Save Democracy?” at #aspenideasfestival as quoted in @thedailybeast. See link in bio to read the full article:
...
“For Freedoms artist @paulacrown_art described a telling moment at one of the group’s town halls.
.
When discussing gun violence, she recounted, one audience member testily defended his Second Amendment right and explained his desire to stockpile as many weapons as he could, seemingly hoping to get a rise out of the group.
.
@hankwillisthomas responded calmly, explaining that, while he understood the man’s right, his cousin had lost his life to gun violence in the years prior, and asked realistically what the country can do about it.
.
The man stayed for an hour after, talking with the town hall’s participants. ‘Hank had created this moment where this guy opened and thought and reflected, and instead of casting aspersions and being impulsive, talked to Hank and talked to all of us,’ Crown said.
.
It sounds so simple: a town hall discussion. But the context here is key. ‘The medium for our project is the campaign, the media, the tools of political campaigns, the political schedule, organizational structures: all these are kind of our materials and our mediums,’ said @ericgottesman.
.
Art changes the frame of reference.”

Our #ManCrushMonday  brings art and activism together spectacularly in everything he does from rap and poetry to writing and filmmaking. With his new film ‘Sorry To Bother You’, Boots Riley is making art to make us laugh and think and make the world a better place. That is totally crush worthy.

I think right now our most important teachers must be Russell Henderson and Aaron McKinney. They have to be our teachers. How did you learn? What did we as a society do to teach you that? See, I don’t know if many people will let them be their teacher. I think it would be wonderful if the judge said, “In addition to your sentence, you must tell your story.”
-Father Roger Schmit

“And quite frankly I wanted to lash out at somebody. Not at Matthew, please understand that, not one of us was mad at Matthew. But we maybe wanted to squeeze McKinney’s head off. And I think about Henderson. And, you know, two absolutely human beings cause so much grief for so many people.”

Throwback to our town hall “Can Art Save Democracy?” at #aspenideasfestival as quoted in @thedailybeast. See link in bio to read the full article:
...
“For Freedoms artist @paulacrown_art described a telling moment at one of the group’s town halls.
.
When discussing gun violence, she recounted, one audience member testily defended his Second Amendment right and explained his desire to stockpile as many weapons as he could, seemingly hoping to get a rise out of the group.
.
@hankwillisthomas responded calmly, explaining that, while he understood the man’s right, his cousin had lost his life to gun violence in the years prior, and asked realistically what the country can do about it.
.
The man stayed for an hour after, talking with the town hall’s participants. ‘Hank had created this moment where this guy opened and thought and reflected, and instead of casting aspersions and being impulsive, talked to Hank and talked to all of us,’ Crown said.
.
It sounds so simple: a town hall discussion. But the context here is key. ‘The medium for our project is the campaign, the media, the tools of political campaigns, the political schedule, organizational structures: all these are kind of our materials and our mediums,’ said @ericgottesman.
.
Art changes the frame of reference.”

As we reel from the big news of reaching our #50stateinitiative @kickstarter goals yesterday, we also acknowledge that the work is not done. Especially today, Independence Day, we have our eyes set on the future. Through our grand collaboration, we strive to imagine a future where we all have the power to play an equal part in our democracy. Though our personal views of our freedoms may differ, we hope that we can acknowledge the power of a collective, nuanced vision of freedom.

@forfreedoms was inspired by Norman Rockwell’s paintings of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms (1941)—freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear. We @forfreedoms are proud to begin this journey to work with artists, art institutions, and citizens all across the country to carve out more space for art in civic engagement and dialogue.

Candlelight vigil for Matthew Shepard in New York City on October 19, 1998. A poster leans on a picture of Matthew with the words “Homophobia, Racism, Sexism, Anti-Semitism.” Think about today...it’s 2018, how much has changed?

“This is the time to begin the healing process. To show mercy to someone who refused to show any mercy. Mr. McKinney, I am going to grant you life, as hard as it is for me to do so, because of Matthew… I give you life in the memory of one who no longer lives. May you have a long life and may you thank Matthew every day for it.” -Dennis Shepard

On October 22nd, 2009, (11 years after the death of Matthew Shepard) President Barack Obama signed The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, protecting victims from crimes motivated by gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability. How do you measure change?

On October 6, 1998, Matthew Shepard, a gay University of Wyoming student, was brutally attacked and tied to fence post. 6 days later, he passed away due to injuries, sparking a nationwide debate on Hate Crime Legislation. We’re coming up to 20 years since his death. How far have we come? Does hate still live in our society? “How do you measure change?”

“I decided that someone needed to stand toe to toe with this guy and show the differences.

''I didn't realize how a hate crime affects all gays, not just an individual. Matt's friends were scared to death. Some left town as result of what happened. Some transferred to other schools. They knew that if it happened to him, it could happen to anybody. All kinds of people get killed every day, but I'm not afraid to go down to the liquor store to buy a six-pack as some of these people were. That had a real impact on me.'' -David O’Malley
