“The job of the artist is to fight against entropy – to keep on taking these fragments and say, ‘What can they become?’ To take the fragments and construct something provisionally new.” ~William Kentridge, artist
RESISTING ENTROPY III
Twelve artists X Twenty-four hours.
Opening reception, Saturday, April 11, 7-9 pm
Resisting Entropy is an exercise in creating collaboratively within a condensed timeframe and shared space. The participating artists begin at noon on Friday, confronted with a sizeable heap of discarded and junked materials, and, over the next 24 hours, live and work together to transform the pile into unique and unpredictable artworks.
This year’s group of artists includes:
David Allen, Alan Clark, Jared Cowan, Bethany Engstrom, Andy Hamm, Alexis Iammarino, Siglinde Langholz, Eric Leppanen, Cristin Millet, Trelawney O’Brien, Jennifer Wilkey, and Andrew White.
Resisting Entropy I took place in 2010 at Asymmetrick Arts in Rockland, Maine.
Revised in scope and with an extended roster of artists, Resisting Entropy II was held at CMCA in 2013.
