Artists Burns Maxey and Maggie Nowinski present “Reflections,” a video and sound installation. The exhibition runs from November 13 - 30. The public is invited to an opening reception during the Easthampton Art Walk on November 13, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Eastworks Building, Room 137 at 116 Pleasant Street, Easthampton, MA.
“Reflections” is an exhibition that maps the city of Easthampton, MA. There will be a sound and video installation that projects large-scale videos of constructed conversations between eight community members. The work also tracks the selected characters’ daily lives through photographs, and includes correspondence between the two artists via postcards over a 6-month period. The opening evening will include a performance by the artists using large-scale Sanborn maps and creating a visual journey of these Easthamptonite’s paths.
Both Maxey (Project Elements Easthampton) and Nowinski (Project Intersect) have previously created site-specific work about Easthampton. In their collaboration of Reflections the artists look at the city from a fresh viewpoint in a documentary style using larger-than-life portrait-style video projections. The videos follow the chosen characters on their self-described daily routes through the city and record observations about their environment.
Burns Maxey has decided to hide the list of guests.
