Exhibit C: LIVE/WORK
by Sister Feathertoe
April 2-May 8 @ 47 W. Adams Street
Special Performance times TBA
About This Exhibit:
This is a two-part site-specific performance and installation within a fully exposed downtown storefront window furnished to look like an artist’s live/work studio where the artist will live, perform and present a video installation over the course of one month. Performances will be streamed live on the web via justin.tv, and interaction at the street-level will promote a lively streetscape.
"When I moved here from NYC, I was intrigued by the abundance of empty storefronts downtown. Additionally, I noticed there weren't really any artists living downtown. The creative class adds vibrance and promotes innovation. In downtown Jacksonville, where initiatives are focused on bringing people back into the urban core, artists are an important key to revitalization. This project explores the possibilities of this and asks, ‘If you build it, will they come?"
