On Thursday November 29th 2012, FRESH MILK IX was held at the Milking Parlour Studio, and it was truly an inspiring event.
The night began with a performance by our artist in residence Alberta Whittle, who showcased ‘Hustle de Money – a Performance by Bertie aka Big Red aka General outta Glitter Zone.’ The interactive performance and accompanying installation explored identity as defined primarily through gender and sexuality. Thank you for a great performance, Alberta!
Following this, the visiting team from the Instituto Buena Bista (IBB) gave a presentation. David Bade, Tirzo Martha and Erik Habets introduced the organization, and students Dominic Schmetz, Kristel Rigaud and Rashid Pieter shared their own practices.
Running all night, we also had the FRESH Exhibition and art sale, featuring work from Alicia Alleyne, Evan Avery, Tracey Chan, Shanika Grimes, Versia Harris, Katherine Kennedy and Rodell Warner.
The exhibition and sale is still up, remember to email firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment to view and purchase some work. Support the local arts community this Christmas!
