Community Art Exhibition - Call and Response: Grief, Resiliency, and Hope @ Flushing Town Hall fence | New York | United States

On February 1, 2021, Flushing Town Hall re-opens the community art exhibition and solicits new artwork for the Lunar New Year, once again inviting participants to artistically express the range of emotions they feel as they face the new year. This Lunar New Year is the Year of the Ox— and its associated characteristics of diligence, strength and determination are skills that help build resiliency, allowing us to recover quickly from difficulties.
Flushing Town Hall will begin to accept new artwork to share as part of Call and Response beginning on February 1, 2021. Participants can hang their artwork themselves, or email scans to the institution before and during the Lunar New Year, which is noted for strength and determination. The Lunar New Year – the Year of the Ox – begins on Friday, February 12, 2021.
If participants cannot travel to Flushing Town Hall to hang artwork, they are invited to take a photo or scan of artwork and message, and email scans to education@flushingtownhall.org. Flushing Town Hall staff will print a copy of the work and hang it on our fence.

There Is Something Here @ Flux Factory
Mar 16 @ 1:00 pm – Mar 31 @ 6:00 pm
There Is Something Here @ Flux Factory | New York | United States

There Is Something Here looks at the components of filmmaking through the lens of the artist’s process, and the challenges of mastering artistic craft while wrestling with self-doubt, lack of experience, and fear of failure. Originally titled: Nothing to See Here, Carlos David TC leaves behind the self-deprecation that many artists experience to instead focus on celebrating the process of growth and exploration.

After a year of lockdowns, quarantines, and unfinished projects There Is Something Here examines the gap between a creative idea and its full realization, reveling in the uncomfortable but generative midpoint of the filmmaking process. From initial sketches to editing, color grading, sound mixing, and everything in between, there is something here and Carlos wants you to see it with him.

Carlos David TC’s solo exhibition features installations of unfinished, deconstructed, incomplete, raw, finished, and mastered video work, conceived in collaboration as an Artist-in-Residence at Flux Factory during the global COVID-19 pandemic. The works will be presented via text, color waveforms, sound, and traditional moving images. Some of the works include My Quarantine Shoes, The Self* Tapes, Pass The Hours, Spencer’s Gift, and the premiere of the trailer for his newest short film: Jevi from 9 to 11.

Jevi from 9 to 11 is a fictionalized documentary about a painter who works at a museum during the pandemic and is set to be released in October 2021. The short film is part of a series called Artist* from 9 to 5 which follows immigrant artists from “9 to 5” the traditional American business hours.
