One Night Only Public Exhibition

May 6th, 7pm-10pm at Fremont Abbey, Seattle

Forward Flux Productions with Parley and Nate Omdal Productions presents a one night only public exhibition on Wednesday, May 6th from 7-10pm at Fremont Abbey, marking the completion of an artists’ residency called collaborate:create. 21 artists have worked across disciplines to create new works in 21 days that investigate gentrification. Engage with art and artists to make your voice heard!

The exhibition has a pARTy atmosphere with a full evening of new works including dance, film, visual art, 10min plays, performative and multimedia installations, music, and more all exploring the changing face of Seattle's neighborhoods. There will be opportunities to meet the artists, and engage in conversation with your fellow neighbors at the show. In addition to new works, the exhibition highlights the artists’ creative processes as a platform to foster the artist-audience relationship. Works range from dance performances to multimedia installations, all exploring the timely theme of gentrification. This exhibition is the fifth cycle of collaborate:create, and the first in Seattle (other cycles have taken place in New York City).
