A???PART: Episode 3

A???PART, a bi-weekly online exhibition of new time-based work/media, will act as an opportunity to create and share new work in light of resource and creative constraints. We now present Episode Three, featuring the work of Storm Butti, Alexis Chilson, Sophie Coburn, Elton Connell, Vi Wheatley, Matt Dickson, Monica Gong, Eunseo Jung, Ali Kushner, Jack Masters, Lydia Matukaitis, Liam Owings, Selena Sancaktar, and Shereen Shamah.

Submissions can serve as a response to the current state of social distancing/living in social isolation or can more broadly demonstrate how you may be adjusting or experimenting with your artistic practice at this time to cope with the current crisis. Of course, with limited access to SAIC’s campus, many students do not have the equipment or materials they are used to having during the semester. While we definitely understand the frustrating aspect of this limitation, we also see potential in the current limitations of access. We are hoping that the makers in our community can feel motivated, inspired, and challenged to channel their resourcefulness to be able to make work or just simply, vent. This series of videos was made in response to the assignment “Fake Commercials” in a Core Studio class during SAIC’s Spring semester with professors Huong Ngo and Andy Hall.

Submissions can be anything from video diaries/confessionals, screen performances, phone camera or webcam films, internet appropriation, etc. We encourage you to work with any resources you may have at home and in a pinch.
