Time for 6X6

Still from Katie Armstrong's "Once More, Once More"

6X6 is oddly time sensitive when you think about it: six minutes, six works, 60 minutes. Curator Brian Hitselberger sorted through over 50 submissions, picking works from Leipzig, Germany; Oakland California; and Atlanta, Athens, and Newnan, Georgia. Hair ribbons, dancing, hand-drawn animation, stitchery, memories, and obsessive timing abound. A good time will be had by all, or at the very least, time will fly. Bring your stop watch and time the works by Patrick Triggs, Jonathan Bouknight, Jeffrey Whittle and Jori Berman, Ellen Lake, Sydney Nettles-Coates, and Katie Armstrong on Wednesday, February 2nd from 7-8 pm at the Ciné Lab in Athens, Georgia.

About the Curator:
Brian Hitselberger has a BFA in Printmaking from Tulane University in New Orleans, and an MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Georgia. He has had residencies at the HUB-BUB Arts Initiative, in Spartanburg, South Carolina and at the Elsewhere Artist Collaborative in Greensboro, North Carolina. He maintains a multi-disciplinary practice of painting, assemblage, printmaking, sculptural installation, and writing. Recently his work has taken the form of books, paintings, and works on paper that investigate minor quotidian experiences as a site of both contemplative stillness and limitless potential for illumination. His work has been exhibited regionally, nationally and internationally, and can be found in the permanent collections of the Elsewhere Collaborative, the Hargrett Library of the University of Georgia, and the print collections of the New York Public Library and Yale University. He is a part-time instructor at the University of Georgia and Gainesville State College and is the co-publisher of the Marco Polo Literary Quarterly, an online literary magazine showcasing international writing in the genres of fiction, poetry and essay.
