It’s going to be a long wait for the next FRONT International Triennial, which, through no fault of its own, has temporarily become a quadrennial — postponed until 2022.
But it’s continuing to engage the local and wider arts community with a brand-new interactive website debuting Wednesday April 29, featuring a new digital platform for its ongoing Whisper Sessions.
“You can talk, ask, comment, sing, or just “be” with others online,” they tell us. “This new feature will allow for healing via art and a new form of online togetherness that both come from sharing each other’s stories and opinions. We believe this platform is a valuable social tool especially during these difficult times of isolation. We hope this will become a place of open-mindedness, care, knowledge production, and respect.”
Their first live streaming event on the new site takes place this Wednesday April 29 at 5:30pm. Its titled “How do we protest if we can’t get out of bed?” Meghana Karmik and Lo Smith will lead a discussion on the relationship between healing and power, based on the texts Sick Woman Theory by Johanna Hedva and Manifesto for Maintenance Art by Mierle Laderman Ukeles.
