Speaking of Making with Adam Frelin & Breathing Lights
Hosted by Atlanta Contemporary in conjunction with Contemporary Cocktails


Speaking of Making is a conversation series about work and the creative process, presented by AIR Serenbe. Join us during Contemporary Cocktails at Atlanta Contemporary for a closer look at the work of Adam Frelin, recipient of AIR Serenbe’s 2017 CoEsistere Focus Fellowship. CoEsistere supports an artist of any discipline whose work explores human population growth and its impact on wildlife. Adam will discuss his practice and his recent role as lead artist on Breathing Lights, the project he and his team completed with a $1 million Public Art Challenge grant through Bloomberg Philanthropies. Breathing Lights presented a multi-city, temporary public art installation that involves illuminating hundreds of abandoned buildings with a breathing effect created with light.

ADAM FRELIN

Adam Frelin (b.1973, Grove City, PA) has shown widely at venues such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Getty Research Institute, Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, and the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. He has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York Foundation for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts, and the College Art Association. Frelin has completed residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, MacDowell Colony, Atlantic Center for the Arts, Ucross Foundation, Fine Arts Work Center, and Yaddo, among others. He has published two books of photography and has had several artworks commissioned throughout the world. Frelin received a BFA from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and an MFA University of California, San Diego. Currently he is an Associate Professor of art at the SUNY University at Albany, and lives in Troy, NY.  Learn more about Adam’s dynamic work and practice  at www.adamfrelin.com.

 

BREATHING LIGHTS

For two months in fall 2016, Breathing Lights illuminated the street-facing windows of hundreds of vacant buildings in the neighboring cities of Albany, Schenectady, and Troy, NY. Warm light filled each window with a diffuse glow that pulses with the gentle rhythm of human breathing. Concentrated in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods with high vacancy rates, these installations  transformed vacant structures from pockets of shadows into places of warmth. This massive installation helped illuminate the region’s struggle with vacancy and its effects on residents and neighborhood economies, and regenerated interest in once-vibrant communities.

Funded through a $1 million Bloomberg Philanthropies "Public Art Challenge" grant, Breathing Lights was led by myself as lead artist, and architect Barbara Nelson. This project brought together local architects, students, engineers, artists, and product developers to design and install custom light instruments. Illumination kits consisted of miniature LED strip lights bound in adhesive fabric, affixed to interior window frames. The lights shined through windows covered in diffusion material, powered and controlled by batteries. In a region that pioneered electricity, a project centered on lighting technology infuses the installation with history and place. Learn more at www.breathinglights.com.

The Other Night School: Rethinking Work with Dr. Janet Donohoe and Dr. John V. Garner

What is the purpose of work? What makes a life of work go well or go badly? These questions puzzled the ancients and yet they are still with us today. Join us as we explore both ancient and modern efforts to discern whether we humans work only because we have biological needs, whether certain traps such as greed and consumerism are avoidable, and whether a life of work has a higher purpose. If you find that your work either brings you joy or infuriates you (or both), then come join us as we work together through these problems!

RSVP Here!

The Other Night School is a lecture series in partnership with Hills & Hamlets Bookshop, the University of West Georgia College of the Arts and Humanities, and AIR Serenbe. University professors give talks on topics of interest—historical, intriguing, and curious—in a setting relaxed and dynamic. Following the lecture is a conversation with the speaker, a question-and-answer discussion paired with wine and cheese.

The Other Night School: Art and Propaganda: The Curious History of Politics and Painting with Dr. Nathan Rees

The great masterpieces of the Western tradition: timeless expressions of an artist's unique, inner vision, right? Not always. Focusing on the revolutionary era of the Enlightenment, we'll investigate the impact of politics on art. Connecting the dots between art and history revels how artists were inspired--or outright compelled--by the political forces shaping the world around them. Come explore this other side of art and discover how even the most acclaimed works of art could serve as propaganda.

Edgar Allan is bringing arts and activity back together again —but this time you can just opt to get a drink without first having to stumble across the “Jogger” finish line. On April 23, the Jogger After After Party at AIR Serenbe’s Container Studio —a night of drinks and design featuring “Rule of Thirds,” an installation and performance presented by Brutal Studio, the 2016 Jogger “People’s Choice” winner.

Last year, Edgar Allan collaborated with Monday Night Brewing to create Jogger, a 5K featuring art from signature Atlanta artists along its West Midtown route. Participants not only got some exercise, a little culture, and some awesome swag (like a commemorative beer glass Monday Night filled with brew at the finish), they also got to vote for their favorite artist: EA partnered with AIR Serenbe to award a Focus Fellowship to the winner, a one-month residency inside the creative community that included a cash stipend of $1,500. Brutal Studio —the all-female design and build studio led by artists Allie Bashuk, Danielle Brutto, and Sara Santamaria —came out on top, and “Rule of Thirds” is the culmination of their month-long residency.

The Other Night School: The Curious Case of Classical Music with Dr. Josh Byrd

While we all might think of a favorite classical piece or composer, how exactly does that music or individual fit into the history of Western music? Which composers stayed within the conventions of their time? Who went rogue? Hop on board a fast and furious "virtual time-machine" as we explore the social, musical, and economic issues that helped mold and shape music as we know it. From the monks of Monty Python to the virtuosity of Paganini, this evening's discussion will try and put everything we hear on a daily basis into a historical perspective.

The Art & Science of Cooking with Insects

  • Manuel's Tavern

Americans love to chow down on lobster and shrimp, but in other parts of the world, people dine on these arthropod's land-based cousins as well. Insects are delicious and nutritious staples, yet an outdated taboo makes us get all squirmy at the thought of it. With 2,000 flavors and textures to play with, cooking with insects can be as fun as it is beneficial to local and global health. Curious about broadening your palette? Join us for a public conversation and optional sampling of traditional delicacies as bug breeder Chelsea Thomas and comic artist Blue Delliquanti discuss raising insects for the table and writing a graphic novel about love in the time of grasshopper tacos.

AIR Serenbe, the artist in residence program in Chattahoochee Hills, GA, invests in artists of all disciplines through their Focus Fellowship and Project Residency initiatives. We are thrilled to be partnering with Atlanta Science Festival this year on a special Project Residency that explores the worlds of insect cuisine, comics, and beyond.
