Lile Stephens’ residency, presented by PNC and located in Artspace’s Upfront Gallery, will explore our cultural and personal relationship to flight. Stephens explains, “Human flight is one of the most ‘unnatural’ yet ubiquitous uses of technology.” He is interested in grappling with the anxiety and fear we associate with commercial flight, drone flight and mythological flight. During his residency, Stephens will conduct a workshop where students will learn how to pilot small aircraft in addition to building a quadcopter drone from the ground up.

Jaimie Warren
I Just Called To Say I Love You

Upfront Gallery & Lobby
May 1 – June 5, 2015
First Friday Gallery Walk: June 5, 6-10pm

Jaimie Warren, 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

Jaimie Warren’s residency, sponsored by PNC and located in Artspace’s Upfront Gallery, will involve a large-scale, collaborative installation pulling elements of theatre production, photography, and art history together into an exciting interactive experience.

Volunteers are needed throughout the month-long residency to assist Warren in the completion of the project. She is looking for set designers, costume makers and performers of all skill levels and 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.
