Submit and Be Relieved
We are relieved every time a 6X6 event avoids excessive regurgitation, and we do so by offering specific suggestions and/or unapproved medical advice. So, we think we might have a handle on some of those qualities surrounding relief, which is both something you can feel and something you can provide. 6X6 reaches out to the world and the world gives back; we have received submissions from every corner of the globe. This relieves Athens of the need to generate all of the art for 6X6, although in some ways we wish Athens would. In fact, perhaps you have been thinking: "I keep meaning to submit to 6X6." And since you haven't done so, you are feeling a little pang of something very much like lameness. The absolute best way to get relief for this uncomfortable feeling is to submit. We hope that each of you will express your thoughts on relief, and submit to the upcoming event, curated by Sabrina Cuadra, by November 21. The event will not relieve you of any money at all on Wednesday, December 1, from 7-8 pm at Ciné Lab.
About The Curator:
Sabrina Cuadra's work is a mixture of of performance art, sound art, and video art, influenced by her Argentine and Miami heritage. Under the moniker "Whistling School for Boys" she performs in rock show settings, combining light, color, found photos and footage with original music and audience participation, shining a light on the ordinary. She seeks to redefine artist-audience boundaries, shattering expectations that any audience might have. Since 2006, WSFB has had appearances at the New Art School's Rock vs. Art VII at the glorious underground pub Churchill's in Miami's Little Haiti, at Electronic SubSouth's first Women Of Electronic Music showcase in Gainesville, Florida, the Athens Popfest at Little Kings Shuffle Club, Flicker Theater & Bar, and ATHICA. WSFB has also projected videos during concerts by the Microphones, Everybody Everybody, 63 Crayons, Flash to Bang Time and Soul Spectacular dance parties in Athens. Her video collaboration with Connie Mae Oliver for Animal Collective's "Purple Bottle" has been viewed over 300,000 times on Youtube. Nobody leaves a WSFB performance without excitement and/or confusion.
