Machine Project   02.10.11

Tomorrow evening we open two projects: Elizabeth Dunfee and Machine Project. Elizabeth is an Akron-based artist who has expanded her painting practice to include video and sound in a room-sized environment. What is great and exciting about the SPACELab program is to watch local artists step outside of their comfort zones and try something different. SPACES provides a safe place for that experimentation to happen. Check out Elizabeth's interview on Cool Cleveland about her project:

Our other "exhibition" opening tomorrow is Machine Project. They are a unique and quirky confederation of artists based in Los Angeles. They provide art experiences that delve into experimental music, massage, psychic mediumship, food and poetry. What I love about Machine Project is how they consider people's full experiences at museums and galleries and not just the experience of looking at a thing. You'll likely find musicians squirreled away in odd corners of the gallery space performing for one or two people. You'll find fun and energetic displays of demolition at Destruction Karaoke (http://www.spacesgallery.org/events/destruction-karaoke-machine-project-event). The video below will give you an idea of how they try to make every interaction with their audiences an artful one.
