On Saturday, February 7, Gordon Roqué will be one of the artists participating in the inaugural Modular Art Pod exhibit during the February 2015 Arts and Music Showcase at Wedgewood/Fort Houston, home of Nashville, Tennessee’s creative working class.
Modular Art Pods (or MAPs) is an open source, multi-disciplinary, collaborative “art tunnel.” Attendees crawl through a series of individually-curated, 4′ cubed micro art galleries. The intimacy of the space (each cube a single-person occupancy) forces the attendees to confront the art solo, away from the distractions of traditional art openings. A special behind-the-scenes backlot tour is available for those unable to crawl through. Attendees can choose to go through the tunnel or around it, but not both.
MAPs is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike, so any group can host an event, any place, any time. The inaugural show will take place at abrasiveMedia in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday, February 7th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. during the Arts & Music @ Wedgewood/Houston event. Visit the official Modular Art Pod website HERE.
Gordon Roqué will be presenting a theatrical story within an Modular Art Pod entitled “The Luminous Music Box” in which he will be performing live music. His art pod will be the final destination at the end of this collaborative art tunnel.
Here is the official roster of the 30 artists who are participating in this inaugural event:
Alison Rinner and Becky Matthews
Ava Marie Puckett
Courtney Adair Johnson
David Wright LaGrone
Dig Deep Light Show
