On two consecutive Mondays in January, idiosynCrazy productions ( Jumatatu Poe & Shannon Murphy) will host a pair of salons with the The Painted Bride Art Center around the theme: Imagining an Economy. The first salon, on Monday, January 9th will feature a panel of artists presenting on the economies they have created for themselves. The following salon, on Monday, January 16th will be a workshop in which attendees collectively imagine and document an economic structure for sustaining health and rigor.
A year ago, idiosynCrazy productions developed The Dreaming Salons as a platform for establishing, continuing, and furthering conversations about the ways that art is woven into our worlds, and embedded within the systems within which we operate. The salons began as formalized conversation groups that took place in living rooms, around potluck meals – space and moments in time dedicated to thought, discussion, energy around topics such as the social responsibility of the artist, honesty and deceit in the arts, and compensation practices in the field. In 2017, these conversations will be their first attempt to open up these discussions to a broader community.
