The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson

October 2, 6pm
Opening Reception
Milhaus, 460 Virginia Avenue

Join us for the opening of Where Do We Go From Here?, a site specific installation by Shamira Wilson at Milhaus. Artist remarks will begin at 6:30pm.

“Where Do We Go From Here?” documents the story of changes occurring in city infrastructure by experimenting with the language of construction materials: their structure, graphics, textures, and juxtaposition with nature. The site-specific installation employs rusted construction ReMesh in an oxidation printing method, transferring gridded rust imprints onto fabric.

Presented in partnership with Milhaus.

RE:PUBLIC psychic workshop/
Led by A. Bowden
at Hoy Polloy
2121 East 10th Street 
Indianapolis, IN 46201

This workshop is meant to help identify and redefine the psychic space as a physical factor active in our own healing and trauma. It discusses various causes of community trauma which are manifested and held at the psychic level. The information and exercises provided hopefully activate a need for emotional healing that leads to a more sustainable way to contribute to community building.

A presentation will be given to help navigate these spaces and concepts visually.

Statement from A. Bowden:

Hello,

There is no one cure or lone cause of community trauma. This presentation is meant to make the language and existence of a psychic space for healing accessible.

This is a conceptual approach to healing through identifying The Who,what,when,where, and why’s of community trauma aka the imploded community. These are artistic techniques for salvaging the self through the we.

Opening: Museum of Psychphonics

Back to earth: the Museum of Psychphonics re-opens its cosmic doors after a year-long hiatus during which it moved (it's still in the Murphy building, though!) and collected more multi-melodic curiosities and interstellar oddities. Designed and curated by artist Kipp Normand, iMOCA is happy to partner on this project, and we hope you can join us opening night, featuring DJ Dicky Foxxx, to see what's new (and ancient and yet-to-come) in this pocket-size portal to far-flung astral planes.

The Museum will be open to visitors Feb 22, 6-9pm, and Feb 23, 12-5pm. Regular hours for the Museum will be on First Fridays and by appointment throughout the year.

The museum is made possible by Deylen Realty, Inc., Blackline Studio, and the Efroymson Family Fund.
