Collaborate with Brooklyn Artist Jaimie Warren at Artspace!

Be a part of a brand new artwork by NYC-based artist Jaimie Warren during her residency at Artspace in May of 2015. This is the artist’s third project in which she has created a large, collaborative work during a residency.

Warren is looking for set designers, costume makers and performers of all skill levels to be a part of her next large-scale piece.No prior experience in performance or art-making necessary- just a desire to be a part of a collaborative work with your local community!

That's What Friends Are For: Self-portrait as Christ/Missy Elliot as collaboration with Cindi Warren and Sally Andersen in a re-creation of Fra Angelico's Predella for the High Altarpiece of San Domenico, Fiesole — 5-panel photograph - part 4

Jaimie will teach basic skills using simple materials including fabric, paint, cardboard and newspaper. Ages 12-80 are welcome to participate. Warren will host open studio periods and performance practices several days a week throughout the month of May, and a final rehearsal and shoot at the end of the month. The piece will be displayed in a public reception at Artspace’s First Friday reception on June 5th.
