American Arts Incubator artist Kendal Henry in Papua New Guinea

From March 7th to April 1st, 2015 Kendal Henry is on-the-ground in Papua New Guinea working with the local community to oversee a series of public art projects that focus on the topic of women's empowerment. His activities include attending the Women's Forum that is being sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Port Moresby, leading a training workshop that will result in a number of small grant awards to local artists, and creating his own public art project. Both the University of PNG and the YWCA are partnering with the American Arts Incubator to explore ideas on how art can be used as a tool for social change in Papua New Guinea.

From the great renaissance masters to contemporary art superstars, technology has always played a part in creating ambitious works of art.

BRING IT! Performance Art Series with John Slepian

Is meditation performative when a simple technical system is constructed to make visible the performer's state of mind? This is the question that artist John Slepian asks as he experiments with a new kind of embodiment in the digital world. In Transcendence, the artist is literally levitated through the power of his mind. Using a hacked toy brainwave sensor, electronics, and powerful actuators, the artist lifts himself by achieving a meditative state. Transcendence humorously and ironically explores the relationship of technology and spirit, and the nature of performance art itself.

BRING IT! Performance Art Series with Miwa Matreyek

Internationally recognized animator, designer, and multimedia artist, Miwa Matreyek, opened the BRING IT! Performance Art Series with her live performance on June 25th.

Based in Los Angeles, Matreyek creates animated short films that integrate animation, performance, and video installation. Arriving to animation from a background in collage, her work explores how animation transforms when it is combined with body, both physically in her performance pieces, as well as a composited video element in her short films. She is interested in the slippery meeting point of cinema and theater/ performance, the moments of convergence where fantastical illusions are created, and the moments of divergence where the two struggle against each other.
