Genesis Project: an experimental artist residency

Genesis_SQI’ve been meaning to start a blog for a long time. What better way to get started than on someone else’s blog? And what better org than Movement Research? I’m digging the WordPress mash-up, and the blog’s proverbial flow with which I can go. For the next month I’m going to use this blog as a platform for discussions surrounding practice and process. And this blog will address the tightrope walk between the everyday world of groceries and rent and doctors and rent and networking, and the world of imagination and metaphor that we, as artists evolving along a lineage dating back to cave painting and beyond, are responsible for.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting interviews and observations, photos and videos surrounding Genesis Project. It’s a month-long collaborative residency for artists working with or through the body. Genesis Project has been produced in several places, and right now we’re in the thick of it at Basekamp, a non-commercial art space in Philadelphia that’s hosting the residency. Last January we put out a call for applications and out of that pool chose artists from completely different backgrounds– art and life backgrounds– who have been interacting and collaborating with stunning motivation and crisp coherence. Genesis Project is a program of Culture Push, an arts organization that I co-direct.

Please feel free to comment or get in touch.
