The Hut Institute
An intensive laboratory-workshop for emerging artists working on borders
June 25—July 1; 10AM-6PM
2 Kingsland Avenue (corner of Maspeth)
L to Graham Avenue
“The Hut Institute” is an exploratory and learning space for emerging artists whose work explores boundaries— boundaries between artistic forms and boundaries between the “art world” and the “real world”. Are there even such boundaries? What is it to make live art in this historical moment? How can we be responsive to the impulses to hybridize, to be inclusive, to reach out, to leave the gallery or theater, while also being respectful of forms, people, and places? The institute will take place at Hut #7, a hut built out of found and re-purposed materials on the site of a restored Greenpoint Hospital building. The hut will directly and indirectly influence our inquiry.
Participants will engage in a series of workshops each day including daily morning movement, and additional sessions with musicians, visual artists, and community organizers. Participants will be invited to work on an independent solo or group project in the neighborhood, exploring what “community interaction” can mean. Projects will be shared with the public (optional) at the Open Hut Day on July 1st. Faculty will include:
Jill Sigman, choreographer
Janine Antoni, visual artist
Kristin Norderval, composer/vocalist; certified Deep Listening instructor
Chloe Bass, artist, activist, co-founder of Arts In Bushwick
Gustavo Aguilar (composer/percussionist) & Gaelyn Aguilar (anthropologist), TUG Collective
Courtney Renken, community organizer
Laura Hofmann, activist and member of OUTRAGE (Organizations United for Trash Reduction & Garbage Equity)
Eric Bruzaitis, activist and member of OUTRAGE
Participants need not have longstanding training in a discipline, but should be open-minded, thoughtful, eager to move, and curious and respectful about how to temporarily enter a North Brooklyn community.
This workshop is subsidized by jill sigman/thinkdance and Arts@Renaissance.
$250 for 6 days (10am-6pm).
July 1 Open Hut Day free.
