Texas Takeover!

March 11, 2010

We’re headed out this weekend to Austin. We’ll be blogging from down south while we install the TEMPLE OF BOOOM at OKAY Mountain! Come on out and see us!
March 19th – April 17th 2010

The Temple of Booom is a collaborative installation by the artist-run alternative space Cinders Gallery from Brooklyn, NY. Artists Kelie Bowman, Kyle Ranson and STO will create a site-specific installation that combines paintings, prints, drawings, murals and sculpture. Exploring places of worship, rituals, shrines, music, and congregation, Cinders will build their own place of spiritual assembly based not on any one religious faith but on the faith of our loose-knit community of artists, performers, experimenters, and musicians.

Happening concurrently with the Austin music festival SXSW, Temple of Booom will feature a specially curated series of performances inside the installation that will act as a welcome alternative to the usual bar and club venues during the fest and will connect the often disparate crowds of music and art under one beautiful makeshift roof. The renowned Austin gallery Okay Mountain will host the exhibition and Tom Tom Magazine will curate special drum

Featuring artwork by Molly Colleen O Connell, Edie Fake, Noel Friebert, Maya Hayuk, Isaac Lin, Sam, Mcpheeters, Allyson Mellberg, Shawn Reed, Jeremy Taylor, Jessie Rose Vala, Erin Womack, and Andrew Jeffrey Wright
