Active Presence

August 8 – September 5 | Opening Reception Saturday, August 8 from 6-8.

‘Active Presence’ explores four artists’ unique perspectives on the role of the meditative. This exhibition presents traditional, performative and digital medias to expand upon popularized contexts of meditation derived from Eastern philosophy. These artists’ deliberate and active collaborations with place and time inspire alternative approaches to artistic production, placing greater emphasis on process and experience. Audiences are invited to witness contemplative and revelatory acts as the artists have situated themselves in derelict buildings, urban traffic, studio environments and rural landscapes. These acts, from solitary mark making to public engagement, shift distant observation to the vulnerability of the immediate.

Featuring Lori Esposito, Siavash Tohidi, Daisie Hoitsma, and Duane McDiamid.

MINT Collective, Collaborative Exhibition at Springbreak's Brooklyn immersive Brooklyn, NY.

MINT is a collaborative, multidisciplinary collective founded and operated by artists located in Columbus, Ohio. Abidingly fresh, adaptable, and dynamic, our mission at MINT is to support underrepresented and developing artists, to cultivate relationships within the community, to embrace alternative projects, and to remain persistently disobedient to traditional thinking.

WILL PLAY FOR SPACE 2017: MEATBALL originated from a proposed basketball tournament in which local artist-run spaces would participate: our gallery, a former meat processing facility, transformed into a nearly full size court, Columbus’ art community as players and spectators in a communal performance. MINT Collective has since vacated our former facilities, alleviating undue financial burden and mitigating friction between our physical operation and city administration. Without a home court, WILL PLAY FOR SPACE is recontextualized into a broader conversation about displacement and nomadic participation, sustainability, and alternatives to alternatives
