Recap: MESSENGERS & MESSAGES interactive visual art exhibition by Royal Brown

On Friday, September 20th, 2019, resident Barn artist Royal Brown hosted Messengers & Messages, an interactive visual art exhibition.  The first solo exhibition/event for Brown, the opening reception brought in over 50 attendees, and even saw 1 lucky art enthusiast win their very own spaceship!  Check out the photo gallery below, as well as a write-up of the event and an interview with Brown with The Collaborative.

 

Interview with Royal Brown with The Collaborative


The Messengers are a fleet of spaceships crafted from regular household objects that people tend to throw away without a second thought.  The Messages are a series of hieroglyphic wall hangings that are meant to be decoded by the viewer.  Combined in this unique immersive art experience, they are meant to evoke a sense of curiosity and surprise.  For you, the viewer, it is seeing these ships that resemble dragons, then recognizing the very familiar objects they are made of (and, for those who accept the challenge, to decipher the messages that come from a starship’s perspective and speak to your humanity).

Messengers & Messages opening reception will take place on Friday, September 20th, from 6-10pm.  The reception will feature mystic vendors, food and drink, and a chance to win prizes through decoding the hieroglyphic messages featured in the exhibition.  Admission is $10, or $15 with a translation booklet.

The exhibition will remain on display through September 28th.
All spaceships will be available for purchase and range from $45-$5,000.

This project is made possible with funds from the decentralization program, a regrant program of the New York state Council of the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo & The New York State Legislature, administered by the Arts Center of the Capital Region.
