Sunday at Headlands with Jennilie Brewster and Helena Keeffe
Sunday August 15, Noon - 5PM
Mess Hall Café Open Noon - 4:30PM
Building 944 | FREE Admission

1PM | Come on an Outing with Helena Keeffe and National Park Service Ranger Mía Monroe. Make sure to reserve a spot as space is limited to 25 participants for the hike!
Spend the afternoon exploring public works in Headlands' Project Space studios, enjoying organic café fare, and participating in artist-led activities.
In the Project Space, Jennilie Brewster has strung together a web of crushed paper balls made from her old photos, newspaper clippings, maps, postcards, book pages, abandoned artwork, and printed emails. She is thinking about physics in relation to consciousness. Just as atoms are constantly moving between us and our environment, likewise each person is a shifting constellation of language and images and when we meet our constellations exchange information.
Throughout the afternoon, Jennilee Brewster invites visitors to create their own 3-D collages from paper ephemera they bring with them and/or mine from Brewster's archive of imagery and text. Guests may also contribute by writing on the wallsthe memories, ideas, dreams, and song lyrics running through their minds. In exchange for leaving something of themselves behind, participants may take home one of Brewster's self-portrait sculptures.
At 1PM, join Project Space AIR Helena Keeffe and National Park Service Ranger Mía Monroe for a hike to discover and identify plants of the Headlands and make drawings along the way. Ranger Mía Monroe will look closely for late summer blooms, seeds, and fruit posing the question: how does the plant world spread itself but also protect itself through spine and poison? Helena Keeffe (AIR '10) will provide materials for making drawings of Headlands' flora and fauna along the way. Space is limited to 25 participants for the hike; click here to reserve a spot. Once back from the hike, Keeffe will display the drawings in her Project Space studio, as a part of her ongoing project.
While in residence in Headlands' Project Space through August 31, Keeffe is working with collaborator Amber Cady to make textiles out of these drawings made by Sunday's hikers and other Headlands' visitors. The drawings will be worked into repeat patterns, silkscreened on fabric, and sewn into a to-be-determined limited edition multiple, which will be available to subscribers as the second issue of Alula Editions, slated for Fall 2010 distribution. Keeffe and Cady started Alula Editions as a way to bring patterned textiles and contemporary art together in the form of a limited edition multiple, a project in part inspired by art subscription pioneers The Present Group and The Thing.
