In Response pairs local emerging artists and musicians together for a series of events that celebrates the artistic process; to share their work and sources of inspiration and to in turn, to become sources of inspiration for one another. This unique collaboration captures the creative process, and illuminates the path that ideas take as they come into fruition. By sharing existing works, notebook sketches and demo recordings, these artists and musicians will gain insights on another’s method of working, and engage in a new process together. In Response culminates in a series of Sunday afternoon exhibitions and performances starting April 21 and running through May 12, showcasing new works guided by the lyrics, colors, sounds, textures, and shapes of their partner’s endeavors. The series opens on April 21 by showcasing the photography of Kelly Burgess and the music of Americana duo Ari and Mia Friedman. April 28th will feature painter Kristin Texeria and Hennessy’s own avant-pop/improvisational trio, talk.listen.door. On May 5th, Andrea Santos will present a new installation of drawings with the experimental and early music influenced duo, Beautiful Weekend. The final pairing will appear May 12th and feature the work of animator/artist Corey Corcoran and the neo-soul sounds of songwriter Kim Mayo.
