open call / spring 14
PREMIERE / TALKSHOW
open call / spring 14 is an intimate talkshow brought to you by Special Service with Preston Chaunsumlit and Christopher Kulendran Thomas, hosted by Britta Thie.
The event includes a premiere of the first Special Service casting tapes produced during their residency at Auto Italia as part of opti-ME*. Special Service have been casting in the space since Friday and will present new work made from this material.
The event is for free, booking is essential. Please RSVP here.
opti-ME* is a month-long exhibition and event series bringing together a selection of creative workers to interrogate the role of the artist, both as model for radical change and as self-promotional strategist. Invited collaborators Special Service, Justin Jaeckle and Ingo Niermann will occupy a transformed Auto Italia space, using it as an experimental testing-ground for new work and proposals, and questioning what “being artist” might mean as their skills and production methods become increasingly embedded across other industries.
