Q. WHAT IS FRENCH STYLE KIZ? WHO IS THIS AUDI GUY?
A. There are multiple sub-categories of dance belonging to the kizomba family. With respect to the global development of the genre as whole, few sub-categories are as innovative, influential, and controversial as French style kizomba–sometimes also called “urban kiz,” “Parisian kiz,” and so forth. Unlike more traditional forms of kizomba, French style explicitly and unapologetically borrows movement from other genres such as tango, zouk, hip-hop, and dancehall to expand the horizon of the broader kizomba family of dance. Audi MPK is one of the few instructors based in the US qualified to teach legit, French style kizomba thanks to his years living and studying the form in France. He teaches weekly in Nashville, TN with his accomplished partner, Cee Jay, and is a sought after dancer and instructor at events across the nation.

Q. WHERE CAN I SEE EXAMPLES OF THIS FRENCH STYLE KIZOMBA STUFF?
A. YouTube playlist with a few examples here, fam: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsABKEnjzzuzzFN8Jmdipz_KN_p1VkDdb

Ruminate Opening Reception

June 03, 2016 at Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=hrsHTpClEAg8PGZGts7mtg

June 3 – July 31, 2016

The Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art is pleased to present “Ruminate,” a three-person exhibition of work by Robin Dluzen, Cydney Lewis and Allison Svoboda. For these three Chicago-based artists, contemplative thought processes address the confluence of and contrasts between humans and nature, using a vast range of meaningful, tactile materials.

For Robin Dluzen, the intersection of labor and landscape is at the core of her practice, and here, a new series of charcoal drawings on stretched lawn-refuse bags consider the artist’s mother’s 30-year career as a horticulturalist. In this exhibition, Dluzen redraws the precisely rendered botanical drawings created by her recently retired mother over the course of her tenure; Dluzen preserves the gestures of her mother’s hand (and even her signature), combining them with her own in works that truly have two authors, collaborating decades apart.

Cydney Lewis, too, looks to everyday materials, both embracing the lowness and the unaesthetic nature of man made matter like plastic paper towel wrapping and dry cleaning bags, and also completely transcending their humble origins. In her installation pieces, the twisted, wired plastics become extraordinarily laborious, vivid recreations of flora. Accompanying these sculptural pieces are a series of ink drawings, taking cues from the aesthetics of black and white films to address a number of symbolic dualistic tensions, including that of race.

Created during a recent fellowship studying Zen and traditional artistic techniques in Japan, Allison Svoboda exhibits a number of multimedia works that use fractals found in nature as catalysts. In her collage works, thousands of brushstrokes on paper are torn and reassembled into a monochromatic, wall-bound mandala. In Svoboda’s Scorched Vestments, a burning incense stick is the sole mark-making tool. Cotton sheets hand dyed with indigo shibori are suspended from the ceiling, suggesting a kind of soft, temple-like architecture. Light refraction from the Vernal Equinox is featured in a video piece. Together, these varied materials and processes create a rich, meditative experience.

A catalog is published in conjunction with the exhibition, featuring an essay by artist and art critic, Alan Pocaro.

Mosaic

June 22, 2016 at Brent House in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=ezkC4AN4w6FnV0n4PhwvTf

Brentsday will be continuing through the summer! Every other week, we will share time together at Brent House.

Mosaic is a collaborative, free-form Bible study. After being prompted by a passage, participants bring in something that they find resonates with that passage. This can be anything, sacred or secular, and can range from songs to movie clips to images to something completely different. You are limited only by your imagination. This exercise allows us to talk about how traditionally Christian topics can relate to everyday life.
