The Invisible Dog Hosts RECESSION ART SHOW, ZERO FILM FESTIVAL

pixeltracker

In Ireland, November 1st is regarded as the first day of winter. In Australia, many Melbourne men sport a mustache in November, and rename the month "Movember," as a way to bring attention to male health issues. In America, November is associated with elections and turkeys. As you can see, November is a month chock full of extremely important events, and for The Invisible Dog, November is just as significant.

Like a "welcome week" for returning and incoming freshmen alike, The Invisible Dog is elated to unite with old and new friends. We welcome back two such cherished alums of The Invisible Dog: The Recession Arts Show and The Zero Film Festival. We also welcome a freshman to the scene: Marco.

OPENING PARTY SATURDAY NOVEMBER 13th - 6pm
RECESSION ART SHOW - WHAT IS THE WHERE?

What is the Where? The perception of art is shaped by its location, but art can be a location itself. What is the Where? asks how artists can respond to the relationship between location, identity, and perception. The group show focuses on installations and photography by 15 artists: Louise Barry, Katrina Boemig, A. Bonnel, Heejung Cho, Stephen Eakin, Ryan Frank, Ian Addison Hall, Jess Levey, Elias Necol Melad, Lawrence Mesich, Evan Roberts, Patrick Serr, Katie Shelly, Celia Tobin, and Matt Woodward.
Recession Art is an arts organization devoted to helping emerging artists show and sell their work while giving art lovers and collectors of all incomes an opportunity to buy original work at affordable prices. We believe that in spite of hard economic times, artists and art lovers don't have to put their passions on hold! We aim to break open the traditional gallery model and make showing, buying, and enjoying art more accessible for people who have been hit by the recession. We believe that we can start our own art stimulus plan today!

November 14 - 19
ZERO FILM FESTIVAL
Zero Film Festival will return to The Invisible Dog Art Center again this November for the 2nd annual Zero Film Festival.

Zero Film Festival, the first festival exclusive to self-financed filmmakers, offers an extensive and diverse collection of feature and short films, from a feature documentary on nomadic Iranian tribes (Baktiari Alphabet, 11/14) to international features, experiments, humorous shorts, abstract animations and creative visually supported musical performances, the 2010 Zero Film Festival offers a unique glimpse in the global happenings of the sub-industry film world.

Friday November 19th - Saturday November 20th - 8pm
MARCO
"Who is Marco?" he asks himself as he sits pennyless in his leaky basement apartment. An intrepid foreigner? A poetic fool? A New Yorker in love? Alone? Secretly Happy? Yes, this is your story too, in progress... of course.
