Mobius/808 Infuse

Organized by Daniel S. DeLuca and Mobius Artist Group

In the last ten days of spring, Mobius will present five nights of live art at the BU 808 Gallery. Mobius/808 Infusepresents each artist with the substantial challenge of creating site-sensitive artworks for the 11,000 square foot gallery. Artists are asked how can they leverage the scale and character of the space through minimal approaches and still generate depth and complexity in their work.  The 808 Gallery is unique for its size and direct exposure to the street through a block-long row of windows. Its dark granite floors and ornately decorated ceiling are distinguished through octagonal designs. Walls usually partition the gallery however, for Infuse, two rows of pillars are the only physical elements that break up the otherwise cavernous space.

Over twenty established and emerging artists will be participating throughout the series. Dirk Adams, who explores the moments of overlap between the auditory and the physical, will draw from the boomy acoustics of the space to generate ingenious sonic cycles. Collaborating trio - Anna Wexler, Dennis Friedler and Marie Lalevée will create an interactive retro-futurist installation inspired by the gallery's former life as a cadillac dealership. During the June 14th fundraiser esteemed choreographer Nathan Andary will present What's in front, a newly commissioned work that explores the space between the physical body and its emotions, contained within the human condition. Provocative and visceral, 4 dancers move in, with, and around each other accompanied by an experimental soundscape created by Jane Wang.  An ideal site for live art, 808 Gallery offers Infuse artists breathing room to engage in activities unencumbered by usual spatial restrictions. The opportunity to experiment with this unique environment promises inspiring experiences not to be missed.

About Mobius:
Mobius (est. 1977) is a nonprofit, artist-run organization, whose mission is to generate, shape and test experimental art. The members of the organization believe an effective strategy for supporting this art is to establish grounds that build relationships among fellow artists. Mobius is committed to structuring environments that foster projects incorporating a wide range of disciplines. This approach sets in motion situations where the artist's impact can be seen locally, nationally and internationally. Constructing art initiatives outside accepted frameworks and encouraging animated discourse with the public are fundamental to Mobius.
