Peanuts Global Artist Collective via @Friendswithyou & @Snoopy

Faesthetic friends and cover artists Friends With You send word about their collaboration with the Peanuts Global Artist Collective. As an artist, I am super impressed AND jealous of this collaboration. Talk about a fun project!

“We got to play in the language of Charles Schulz and are launching this project that will spread happiness to Snoopy fans far and wide. We will be premiering a mural of the “lil Cloudy Brown” character we developed, located in the Hudson Square neighborhood, right next to the Children’s Museum of the Arts. There will be a reception today from 5 – 6:30pm which will feature a walking tour of the seven public murals, led by the Peanuts team and project curators, Culture Corps. We’re so honored to be included in this project alongside Rob Pruitt, Kenny Scharf, Nina Chanel Abney, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Assume Vivid Astro Focus, and Mr. A. There will be lots of art and specialty products coming soon so keep your eyes peeled.”

…What is the abstract literature? -Take all elements of the written language to generate another type of language. There is experimental poetry, also not a Dadaist experiment. It may be a new literary genre. Part of the painting. I try to bring literature to the field of creativity. But it does not get something that makes no sense! Is read words, recognize, rather than read, recognize the structures with which the author has fun at work…

The @eidiahouse & the DECONSUMPTIONISTS trailer!

Last week I had the privilege of touring the EIDIA’s “deconsumptionists” “art as archive” trailer, which is currently parked in Toledo. The trailer is an extension of the EIDIA House based in Brooklyn. It is also a mobile archive of the past 30 years of artwork produced by Paul Lamarre and Melissa P. Wolf.

Conceptually it’s a lot to absorb. Each numbered orange bag in the back is a catalog of different projects the two have created and collaborated on, as well as documentation and products associated with the EIDIA house including the art created in Plato’s Cave. From a curatorial point of view, they really seem to love art focused on process.

For example, currently hanging on the trailer’s walls is a piece created by Pia Linz. During her time with EIDIA, she placed herself inside a plexiglass polyhedron and then drew what she saw on the surface of the container. Each triangle piece of plexi ended up being used for print making, with incredible results…

Also on view were binders filled with work, beautifully staged and photographed. Really curious displays that tell the complicated and amazing story of Paul and Melissa’s incredible careers. If ever there was a perfect coffee table art book subject, it’s this.

If you get a chance to check this ever changing display, make a point. And if you’re involved with any spaces or institutions that would like to showcase this inspiring project, reach out directly to the artists! More information can he found at: www.eidia.com
