Con Artist Introduces “Improvise Combustion”
While many New Yorkers head out of town for the weekend, the underground Con Artist collective is premiering a new group show in its gallery space. Indeed, tomorrow night is the inaugural party-event for Improvise Combustion, a “collection of collaborations and new work.” Participating artists include Mike Ming, Chris Mendoza, Naomi Kazama, Kenji Hirata, and Pablo Power.
Improvise Combustion is a show concept to liken the visual medium to a group jazz ensemble. For this particular session, soloists perform as a single form or band unit, an opportunity for the artists to re-unite and re-ignite collaborative connections. There is no head or tail but rather like an organic landscape, a sound-scape and visual-scape that embraces and connects to create and unfold a story of improvising magicians unleashing and expressing for the sake of creating. The end result is a story of atoms colliding and energy bursting, creating chaotical in the midst of controlled expressions, ultimately, an ‘Improvise Combustion.’
Improvise Combustion runs through June 13 at 164 Suffolk Street.
