Fernando

Dates: September 22 – November 13, 2011

Artists: Trisha Baga Lukas Geronimas, and Mads Lynnerup

Curator: Terri C. Smith (see more on the exhibition at curator’s blog)

For Fernando, artists Trisha Baga, Lukas Geronimas, and Mads Lynnerup collaborate with curator Terri C. Smith to develop an exhibition that is informed, in part, by Franklin Street Works’ location in the city of Stamford, Connecticut, and its unique position as a new alternative art space. Preparations for Fernando began this summer with Baga, Geronimas, Lynnerup, and Smith embarking on a two-day orientation in Stamford that included: tours of the Avon Theatre and NBC studios; discussions about Stamford’s downtown revitalization and historic architecture; and visits with civic leaders. Through ongoing exploratory approaches, the artists will continue developing deeper understandings of Stamford’s communities, organizations, and infrastructures as their original projects unfold. The exhibition’s structure promotes surprises and flux, fostering situations that welcome improvisation and experimentation.

City Saturday: “The Garden Party” performance by Trisha Baga

On October 22 from 12:00 – 6:00 pm Franklin Street Works hosts City Saturday. Curator Terri C Smith gives tours and the day’s festivities are topped off with an original performance by Trisha Baga titled “The Garden Party.” Throughout the day special plates are served in the cafe, including ribs, sliders, and special beers.

All of the artists from our inaugural exhibition “Fernando” are in attendance.  Baga and a collaborator dressed as a cow in high heels lead a procession of gallery goers through downtown Stamford, followed by a performance. Baga’s performance, which is informed by everything from Stamford’s rappelling Santa, to wedding ceremonies, to Occupy Wall Street to a quote from the television show “The Office,” provides a loose narrative that touches on the architecture and civic rituals of Stamford, but is also imbued with broader experiences, including hope, rejection, exhaustion and melody.

City Saturday: Fun Food and a Performance by Trisha Baga

We are intentionally keeping our first City Saturday a bit of a mystery, but we can tell you it’s on October 22 from 12:00 – 6:00 pm and the artists from our inaugural exhibition “Fernando” will be there.  It is a casual setting that will include fun “street” style foods at the café – think about your favorite food cart in New York or New Haven! There will also be a performance by Fernando artist Trisha Baga, which will involve anyone in attendance who wants to join, a skyscraper, and some of the tropes associated with weddings. The performance will be documented and the videos and still images will, most likely, inform a new artwork by Baga. Continue reading
