Art in Odd Places - September, 2013
This week we are privileged to share some images from the Dee Why Art in Odd Places Event last weekend. The identical art installations will be seen this weekend in Manly for their Arts Festival – Saturday and Sunday.
ABOUT ART IN ODD PLACES:
Art in Odd Places (AiOP) is a thematic annual festival that presents visual and performance art in public spaces along 14th Street in Manhattan, NYC from Avenue C to the Hudson River each October. Active in New York City since 2005, AiOP aims to stretch the boundaries of communication in the public realm by presenting artworks in all disciplines outside the confines of traditional public space regulations. Using 14th Street as a laboratory, this project continues AiOP’s work to locate apertures in public space policies, and to inspire the popular imagination for new possibilities and engagement with civic space. www.artinoddplaces.org.
Art in Odd Places (AiOP) aims to present art that stretches the boundaries of communication in the public realm by presenting artworks in all disciplines outside the confines of traditional public space regulations. AiOP reminds us that public spaces function as the epicenter for diverse social interactions and the unfettered exchange of ideas. AiOP is directed by artist Ed Woodham and is a project of GOH Productions. www.gohproductions.com.
