This Weekend


Hybrids of Tutela @ McLean Project for the Arts

Hybrids of Tutela: New Works by Melissa Dickenson
Melissa Dickenson exhibits works made of acrylic paint and ink on cut paper, mounted on acrylic backing. The resulting pieces are uniquely shaped and dimensional, moving out from the wall and breaking free of the traditional rectangular picture plane. A fantastical world inhabited by imaginary flora and fauna is created within the confines of these flowing, meandering and intricate structures, wholly original and at once both sweet and slightly sinister. In the Atrium Gallery.
Exhibition Dates: December 3, 2009 - January 8, 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday Dec. 3, 2009 7 - 9pm

C. Ryder Cooley is an interdisciplinary artist, musician and performer. Weaving together chimeric images with found props and forgotten objects, she creates cinematic performances and installation spaces. She will present Animalia, Stories of Collapse, Calamity and Departure, performed with Natalie Agee. Animalia is an inter-species fairytale that combines live music on singing saw, accordion and strings with movement and projection. Performed within a landscape of mesmerizing video and archival film, Animalia invokes visions of secret bee societies and haunted circus scenes.

Passerine @ LOF/T
MAGIC EYE presents “Passerine”, a projector performance by Raha Raissnia with live sound by Kenny Wollesen
"Passerine" is Raha Raissnia and Kenny Wollesen's Baltimore debut. Raissnia is Brooklyn-based expanded cinema artist. Influenced by the work of Harry Smith, Bruce Conner, Jim Davis and Paul Sharits, she incorporates painting, live projection and installation in her performances. Combining collaged and hand-painted 35mm slides with 16mm film projections, Raissnia’s projections produce a “slow-moving montage during which scenes are at once temporary and aleatory. The arrangement underscores cinema’s inherent paradoxical structure of manipulating stillness to conjure up the illusion of movement.” (R.R.)
