Redux is proud to announce that this Friday, August 10 from 6:00pm – 6:30pm, Sinisa Kukec will give a free lecture in accordance with the opening of Void to Void. Sinisa Kukec describes his work as cosmic and states,
“Whenever I have an opportunity to do a solo exhibition, I perceive the space as a terrain or otherworldly experience. Maybe it’s an opportunity for you to crawl around in my head and see what that looks like or meet some of the characters who are there.”
At 7pm, visitors are invited to experience Art After Dark*, a psychedelic wonder-haven disco, with Theatre Marvelosa, LIBARIES, and DJ Party Dad. To add to the party’s enjoyment, Food Truck Hello My Name is BBQ will be parked out front to compliment the beverages served inside. Redux guarantees this celebration will be a delight of the senses.
*Please note visitors who arrive after 7p.m will be charged $5 for Members and $10 Non-members.
Below is an excerpt from, Zee Hat, a full length film and Theatre Marvelosa production that debuted at the Charleston International Film Festival in 2011.
