Sharon Adarlo, local Newark artist and writer, will be showing a small collection of paintings, drawings and sculptures that deal with our sensual perception of the world - phenomenology - via the realistic, artistic rendering of various objects: food, the human body, finely handmade artifacts, etc. As such, the art pieces range in style and medium, from highly technical oil paintings and drawings done in the mold of the Old Masters, stylized portraits of people, to evocative and mysterious shadow boxes.

Performance by:
Kelly Villalba and Desmond Grant
8PM-9PM
Artist Statement:

“Stand Down” is a time-based piece involving installation, performance, and printmaking. In my performance, I consider the issues that women face under misogynistic and patriarchal expectations. The struggle observed between the body and the object illustrates the pressure placed on women to be stronger, smarter, and better than their male peers, despite being perpetually ignored, mistreated, and silenced. This work reclaims the use of the female nude as the passive object to the creative initiator.

Event poster/Featured Image

33 Washington Street, Newark, NJ 07102

6PM-9PM

Opening Reception: Friday, October 11, 6PM-9PM

Collateral Damage is a sight-specific installation commenting on the caging of children in detention centers in the United States.

Obviously the cage in the center of the room is specific reference to those in which children are being held at detention centers. Surrounding the cage, I have placed dozens of foil "blankets" mimicking those that are given to the children sleeping on concrete floors. Each of the “blankets” has a different physical object that once belonged to a child: a toy, a sock, a dress, a sneaker, or another article of clothing.

All these objects have been donated by children and parents who find it painful to even conceive of children being caged.

Collateral Damage is on view October 8-30...24/7 from street and by appointment.

Interrogations: Artists at Work

Newark Arts

33 Washington St, Newark, NJ 07102

12PM-8PM

Performance by:
Kelly Villalba and Desmond Grant
4:30PM-5:30PM
Artist Statement:

“Stand Down” is a time-based piece involving installation, performance, and printmaking. In my performance, I consider the issues that women face under misogynistic and patriarchal expectations. The struggle observed between the body and the object illustrates the pressure placed on women to be stronger, smarter, and better than their male peers, despite being perpetually ignored, mistreated, and silenced. This work reclaims the use of the female nude as the passive object to the creative initiator.

The Newark Arts 2019 theme of "The Year of the Woman" will be an extension of the Brick City Collective readings that are hosted variously throughout the year. We offer a safe space for our audience members and participants to talk poetry but we also dig deeper into the spaces that we are writing in such as the POC and Queer experiences.

With a sensitivity and understanding of the female/ queer body, all members of BCC have work that deals with gender, feminism, and womanism. For the Newark Arts Festival, our performances will be a reading where Brick City Collective, friends, and Newark Arts attendees will have the chance to listen to some of our newest work on these subjects and more! These will be our entry points to discuss and enjoy the spoken art that is poetry.

With 20+ readers, there won't likely be room for an open mic, but still come! We'll do our best to accommodate the audience!

Collateral Damage

Event poster/Featured Image

33 Washington Street, Newark, NJ 07102

3PM-5PM

Collateral Damage is a sight-specific installation commenting on the caging of children in detention centers in the United States.

Obviously the cage in the center of the room is specific reference to those in which children are being held at detention centers. Surrounding the cage, I have placed dozens of foil "blankets" mimicking those that are given to the children sleeping on concrete floors. Each of the “blankets” has a different physical object that once belonged to a child: a toy, a sock, a dress, a sneaker, or another article of clothing.

All these objects have been donated by children and parents who find it painful to even conceive of children being caged.

I will be present from 3PM-5PM

Collateral Damage is on view October 8-30 ...24/7 from street and by appointment.
