In February 2018, HIVE plans to host NATURAL FORCES, an experiential art installation, at the Museum of Human Achievement. The installation will be a collaboration of local women and non-binary artists that explores the states and forces that push and pull us, internally and within the larger context of society. Meditating on themes like destiny and death, desire and destruction, dream and despair, delirium and delight, artists will create spaces that inspire self-reflection and questioning of societal norms.
On Dec. 16th from 11am - 1pm, HIVE is hosting a community meeting for artists interested in participating. We hope artists from different communities, working within a variety of disciplines will choose to attend. At the meeting, we'll brainstorm ideas and concepts for installations, find collaborators within the group, and start the working process.
Selected artists will be given a stipend for supplies and labor as well as community support. Installations will be selected based on the design, originality, and feasibility .
This project will be supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department and HIVE is a member of the Austin Creative Alliance.
