ZOMBIE ART COLLECTIVE REVISITED

Ally freakin’ Bernstein ’13 sends in info about an art collective that’s been around since 2003 or so, but remains as lifeless as ever. In other terms, this is “a non-hierarchical assortment of people aiding one another in projects to reclaim public space for personal expression.” Get involved this Monday at 8:30, dead or undead.

Bernstein writes:

The Zombie Art Collective is a group of artists committed to collaborative, interactive engagement in their work. We facilitate happenings, spaces, group projects, events and workshops in the Wesleyan community.

Zombie is a non-hierarchical assortment of people aiding one another in projects to reclaim public space for personal expression. Zombies seek to create art that is involved, public, participatory, fluid, and dangerous; in which the role of the artist is to instigate, and the role of the audience is to become co-conspirators in our little mental coup against passivity.

Zombies want your brain.

A lil bit o history: Zombie Art Collective has been around since at least 2003 but maybe earlier. This means at least 8 years of art workshops, radical speakers, and undead installation projects. As participants have graduated, the Collective has become inactive, but it’s never too late to get things going again.

What is going to happen at this meating? Let’s BRAINZTORM ideas for public art projects for Wesfest, Spring Fling and the rest of the semester. Wesleyan has gotten complacent. It’s time to show campus that we still care.

If you represent another student group and you’re interested in collaboration, definitely check this out. Bring friends!
