Forward Flux Productions presents Cycle 8 of collaborate create, a 21 day artist residency series. A diverse group of 20 artists are given 21 days to create an immersive exhibition exploring a single theme. For this cycle, the artists will be investigating identity.
The exhibition is titled “Who Am I / Who I Am” and will feature all new works created in 21 days, including paintings, film, poetry, dance, new plays, interactive installations and more. The exhibition will be installed throughout the entire Fred Wildlife Refuge venue (our presenting partner). In addition to the new works on display, there will be a full bar, live music and a pARTy atmosphere. Connect with the art, artists and your fellow audience members to explore our shifting relationship with gender, sexuality and identity.
Audiences are invited to explore the artists’ installed works on their own pace, staying the entire time to see all of the pieces (7-10pm), or dropping by for a portion of the evening.
Cycle 8 of this residency program is guest curated by Barry Johnson. Barry was a resident artist in Cycle 5 of the program, exploring gentrification.

Adé, Angel Alviar-Langley aka Moonyeka, Tré Calhoun, Melissa Cole, Gabriel-Bello Diaz, Chelsea DuVall, Zane Exactly, Melissa Koch, William Kuko, Ted Larson, Sparkle Leigh!, Angel O’Leary, Julian Pena, Starheadboy, Nelle Tankus, Tré (Trout.)
