    Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at 06:30 PM · 8 rsvps
    Triangle Community Center in Norwalk, CT

    This is a last minute Volunteer Meeting for all Fairfield County's Pride in the Park 2018 volunteers that were unable to attend the May 15 meeting due to unexpected weather conditions (or for any other reason).
     
    For this meeting, you can expect to engage with the staff members that'll be working closely with you leading up to and on the day of Pride in the Park. We'll go over the different shifts, roles, and tasks that you'll share responsibility for.
     
    Feel free to bring a family member, friend, or coworker. If you come by yourself, be prepared to leave with new friends, whether you're a first time volunteer or a Pride in the Park veteran.
     
    Questions about volunteering? We'll be answering them here. Pride in the Park is Connecticut's largest Pride festival, and we're here to ensure that you feel as supported as possible.

  • LGBTQ and Friends Tour at Franklin Street Works

    Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at 07:00 PM
    Franklin Street Works in Stamford, CT

    About the event:

    Questions: Call or Email Katelyn at 203-853-0600 ext 103 or katelyn@ctpridecenter.org

    FREE, No RSVP Required, LGBTQ and Friends of All Ages Welcome!

    Triangle Community Center staff and community members are meeting at Franklin Street Works in Stamford to explore their new exhibit, meeting and talking to the artist-in-residence Anne Cousineau, enjoying the café, and meeting new people!

    When we visit, Anne will present their work and process, ask our guests to put descriptive language to the abstract work on view, and, through simple exercises, and encourage you to reflect on/share their own creative practice and/or identity in relationship to their work as well as the larger group exhibition.

    Franklin Street Works will also provide complimentary coffee and mini cookies! Franklin Street Works hopes to get permission from St. Andrew’s church across the street so visiting groups can park for free on those days.

    ABOUT THE ARTIST:
    Anne Cousineau is a Queer/Trans artist living and working in Los Angeles, CA and the Mojave Desert. Through material investigations, Anne entangles cultural notions of the synthetic and organic to consider somatic and ecological imaginaries. They received a BFA in Painting from The Rhode Island School of Design and are currently an MFA candidate at The Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College. For more check out Anne’s artist website: http://afcousineau.com/

    About the exhibit:
    The paintings in “My Vicious Throbbing Heart: Animating Desire in Abstract Painting” operate in between coming into being and moving out of form. They are underscored by a sense of aliveness. This exhibition investigates the intersection of abstraction and animism as emphasized by certain formal qualities — goopy, sticky, ooey-gooey or otherwise materially luscious surfaces in combination with aspects of pattern and repetitions such as flutter, throbbing, palpitation, pulsating, orgiastic rhythms. An idea of “Frankenstein Painting” includes forms of abstraction that attempt to spark life and animate the canvas as its own entity. Anna Betbeze, Anne Cousineau, Leidy Churchman, Matt Morris, Carrie Moyer, Sigrid Sandstrom, Laurel Sparks, Latham Zearfross and Claire Arctander, and Molly Zuckerman-Hartung draw lineages that include Pattern and Decoration, craft, textiles, and the spill-and-pour aesthetics of Helen Frankenthaler and Lynda Benglis. Taking the forms of videos, a colored fabric installation, a rope and rock assemblage, charred and dyed fur, and alchemical experiments on canvas and the gallery floor, these artists luxuriate in materiality while challenging the medium specificity of painting. "My Vicious Throbbing Heart: Animating Desire in Abstract Painting was" curated by Risa Puleo.
