Jane’s Walk x Open Source: A South Slope Saunter

May 4 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Open Source Art Walk: A South Slope Saunter

LED BY MONIKA WUHRER AND VIC WALSH

We will begin with a walkthrough (with coffee and tea served!) of Open Source Gallery’s current exhibition, Latte Capitalizm: Letters as a Source of Resistance, a project by Polish artist Monika Drożyńska. The artist uses hand embroidery on fabric as historical, political, and social commentary.

From there, we will re-enact a walking tour by a past exhibiting artist, Mathew Jensen, called LOW WALK HIGH WALK through the neighborhood of South Slope in which participants will be invited to generate a collection of objects, ephemera and natural detritus, which will be arranged and showcased in a new collaborative installation, created as a group activity at the end of the walk. We will pass through the historic Greenwood Cemetery and end at the Koko Lot, Open Source’s home for its youth and sustainability projects.

ACCESSIBILITY
South Slope is accessible by train (a 10-15 minute walk from the F or R stations), CitiBike, and car. Both the Gallery and KoKo Lot are accessible from the sidewalk, and the walk will primarily be via sidewalks and walkways. The walk is relatively long (70-90 min, with time for collecting found objects and materials) and includes hills.

LOCATION INFORMATION
RSVP is required and capacity is limited. Meeting location, ending location, and directions will be provided via email before walk date.
