PhxArt Project: CityScape

Phoenix Art Museum brings public art to CityScape in downtown Phoenix for the annual CitySkate Holiday Ice Rink

Featured installations include El Nuevo Coloso, a three-piece sculpture by Sam Fresquez inspired by the poem on the base of the Statue of Liberty, a video installation best viewed after sunset by Kenaim Al-Shatti, and Text Gathering, created by Tessa Windt and participants from the Arts Engagement Program at Phoenix Art Museum.

Text Gathering was generated through conversations by participants in the fall 2018 session of the Arts Engagement Program at Phoenix Art Museum. Participants were invited to respond to open-ended questions like ‘What do you wish for? Do you prefer to send or receive mail? How do you like to start the day?’ Reflecting on these conversations, participants distilled and reproduced their words to study the impact of material, context, and scale on our understanding of text. These banners offer new combinations that spark further poetic possibilities and a window into the imaginations of people living with dementia and their care partners.
 
Power Off
January 6, 2019
2 pm
 
Power Off is a meditative workshop structured around the space of the screen, specifically that of a mobile device. Using the solar-powered charging station at CityScape as a hub, artist Mikey Foster Estes will lead participants through the dynamics of being a part of a group in public while simultaneously being encapsulated by an electronic device. Participants will use their own mobile devices to engage in a series of communal and contemplative exercises that explore the screen as both an extension of the body, and as a symbolic barrier that disconnects us from our surroundings. Instead of the screen being a thing that diverts our attention from one another, it will become an object of collective focus and reflection.
 
Mikey Foster Estes is an artist whose practice is rooted in the everyday and spans across the disciplines of performance, photography, sculpture, video, and writing.
 
 
PhxArt Project: CityScape is organized by Phoenix Art Museum, and is made possible through the generosity of Red Development.
