SPF15 @ Fringe Projects Miami 2016, Dec 3

30 November 2016

SPF15 is presenting Kult of Konsciousness at Miami Beach on December 3.

Part of Fringe Projects Miami 2016, a Play in Seven Parts will be performed in a 10’x10’ tent on the beach in a non-hierarchical collaboration between the script written by  Kim-Anh Schreiber, set design by Audrey Hope and costumes by Lila de Magalhaes.

The play takes place in a kitchen, where two flowers Kween and Khaos “begin to cannibalize each other while stuck at home, eating salads and awaiting the birth of a baby flower” until a third one, Karma, enters.

Audrey Hope + Morgan Mandalay @ Helmuth Projects, May 14 – 21

14 May 2016

Audrey Hope and Morgan Mandalay are presenting joint exhibition 8 Rows Back at San Diego’s Helmuth Projects, opening May 14 and running to May 21.

The exhibition press release is composed of excerpts taken from Tennessee Williams’ 1944 ‘memory play’ The Glass Menagerie and Anne Carson’s translator’s notes on Sophocles’ Electra. They’re cut up and slightly altered to present a full text describing the externalised internal of a universal “language of lament” dominated by Williams’ stage direction: “The narrator is an undisguised convention of the play, taking whatever license with dramatic convention is convenient to their purpose.”

Mandalay is founder and director of mobile project SPF15, that also presented The Arroyo Seco Garden Golf Classic “exhibition as miniature golf course”, in which Hope also took part.

The Arroyo Seco Garden Golf Classic @ TARP, Oct 18

16 October 2015

The Arroyo Seco Garden Golf Classic group exhibition is on in a pool in Los Angeles’ Altadena called TARP, on October 18.

Presented by SPF15 the show is part of an ongoing series of exhibitions curated by Katie Bode and appearing across eight sites around the lower Arroyo Seco watershed. This one is “an exhibition as miniature golf course”, uniting “private yards ad alternative art spaces… in an artistic experience of kitsch and play”.

The event is part of an effort to shift the gallery space from the white cube to a more casual and intimate environment between work and viewer, and will show work by Connor Creagan, Audrey Hope, Angie Jennings, Chris Warr and Allison Wiese, among others.

See the FB event page and the project page for details.**
