Nov. 9, 2012 - PRLog -- The BackPack Gallery proudly presents the first exhibition of the “I Pick You First Series.”  An exhibition where the first artist is chosen by the PackPack Gallery and this artists is given a chance to be the Curator by selecting from 2-6 artist to collaborate in a performance.   Raul Hott will be the first artist/curator for this exhibition and he has selected Lucia Pedi and Macklen Mayse to perform with him on the following dates and time:  

November 17th and 18th – 4-730pm.  

Below are a few words from Raul Hott on his artist selection:

The artists selected this time to perform at the High Line Park employ modes of improvisation and theater, and also they question the idea of “movement” under playfulness and exploration into the art world. This group of artists promotes new social relations and they have specific thoughts for the issues that today affect the body. This venue is formulated by the idea of participation: the artists will create situations and the spectator will become essential and necessary, in order to invite the audience to participate in and potentially “complete” the piece.
“The poetics of the ‘open’ work tends to encourage ‘acts of conscious freedom’ on the part of the performer and place him at the focal point of a network of limitless interrelations.”  Umberto Eco

The BackPack Gallery

Due to the mobile nature of the BackPack Gallery a Twitter account has been set up for location and time updates of the art performance.  Visitors can search in Twitter for ‘backpackgallery’ and find its current location.  Any visitors wishing to follow the gallery along to its different locations are welcome to stay and become an active visitor performer.

The BackPack Gallery is at its core, an interactive collaborative project. This project combines all areas of contemporary visual art into a performance where the gallery space is a backpack sculpture that collaborates with other artist while interacting with different environments, spaces, and viewers.  The BackPack Gallery takes art out of confinement and into the public and mobile realm. Art and the artists come to the viewer.  The gallery presents art in an interactive environment through video, site-specific installation, and performance art.

All the Gallery Units are equipped with gallery lights, a folder with artist’s info and CV/bio, guest & comment book, and magnetic doors that hold artist & gallery mission statement. Artist exhibiting in the BackPack Gallery are asked to participate by creating an art installation (video, mixed media, photography and sculpture art) and performing with their BackPack Sculpture Units.
