Transmodern Festival: Part 1

April 3, 2009 at 11:24 am (Uncategorized)

I went to the opening ceremonies of Baltimore’s Sixth Annual Transmodern Festival last night. The festival is to present local and travelling performers, filmmakers, artists and musicians.

Last night consisted of two performance artists, a filmmaker/performer and a musical performance group, from what I could gather. Also, a fortune teller sat by the entrance of the Whole Gallery on the H&H building’s third floor.

Throughout the festival, attendees are invited to participate in an art installation called, “The Temporary Nature of Ideas.” Fabrics, glue, safety pins, scissors and yarn are offered to create substance for a fleeting idea, and will be added to all the others outside on a system of pullies.

Artists Jenny Graf, Shana Multon, Animal Charm and Helicopter Dude performed and each was completely different.

Tonight starts off at 8:30, and will be taking place in three of the building’s four floors. The Whole Gallery will be maintaining installations from last night, as well as a few more.

The 5th Dimension will be presenting four artists: Ami Dang, Hermonie Only, Liz Downing & Michael Willis, and Smelling Salts Amusements.

Gallery Four will be holding four installations by Julia Oldham, Sarada Conway & Jackie Milad, Services United, and David Moré.

Additionally, there will be many performers and artists roaming throughout the festival and including attendees in their projects.

Photos soon-ish.
