Rockland, ME, June 8, 2018 — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) invites you to enjoy an afternoon of lemonade and farewells with artists Dafna Maimon and Ethan Hayes-Chute in the CMCA courtyard from 2-4pm and from 4-7pm on Main Street during Rockland’s Summer Solstice Celebration. Learn about saying goodbye at Camp Solong, where we stay to leave.
Camp Solong presents a Fun-Raising event to inform and recruit campers and friends for the upcoming camp session. Camp Solong is an ongoing collaboration between artists Dafna Maimon (Porvoo, Finland) and Ethan Hayes-Chute, (Freeport, Maine). Founded in 2016, Camp Solong is a gesamtkunstwerk evolving around an absurdist, nomadic feminist summer camp for adults. Camp Solong’s third session is taking place this August on Orr’s Island, Maine.
“At Camp Solong, we have tailored a program which makes use of the potential condition of the Farewell. Recognizing it as the most essential experience of not just Summer Camp, but existence at large, our summer camp program is stacked full with around-the-clock fun and relaxing activities and contemporary methods that simulate and prepare our campers for their inevitable and eventual departure from Camp. Through guided exercises and games, you will be given the chance to sift through the entire emotional range of the ‘goodbye – universe’ in all of its stinging colors.”
