Letter from Alumni: Lawrence Mesich, MFA 2006

Hi everyone. It’s been awhile since I’ve had news to announce, but now I’ve got several things to tell you about:

I’ll have a piece in the Making History Exhibition organized by Arts in Bushwick, which opens Sunday 4/19 from 4-7pm. My piece is a model of a larger work that I’ll have up in my studio for BOS this year. This is a benefit for AiB and all of the work in the show will be raffled off on May 10th, so come and find some work you’d like to own on Sunday and come back on 5/10 to try to acquire it. You can take a look at all of the work in the show here: http://artsinbushwick.org/making-history-exhibition-benefit-gallery/

I’ve been hard at work on another new piece called Distributed Risk, which I received a Queens Art Fund grant to build and will be on display in my studio for Bushwick Open Studios this year (6/5 – 6/7). It’s a large sculpture/multi-channel video piece, and continues the body of work I started last year with Inherent and Residual Risk. This is the largest and most complicated piece I’ve worked on in a long time, and I’m very excited about it. I’ve refining and working out design issues for the part few months, and progress has slow but steady. I’ve moved on to production and am nearly finished with the video components, and I’ve engaged sculptor Cody Hughes to work on fabricating the structure. I hope you’ll come visit me in June and take a look. In the meantime, I have images of the digital and physical modes up on my site.

But that’s not all! I’ve also been working with Sam Hillmer and Laura Paris on two new Maze projects. For the uninitiated, it’s a life-size, traversable maze that includes light, video, sculpture, and a myriad of musical performances and time-based events.  If you don’t remember this project or weren’t able to check it out in 2012, you can get a refresher here.
The first maze will happen in Chicago at the Thalia Hall garage from 5/7 – 5/24. It’ll be a new iteration of the design we used in 2012. The space is cool, the line-up will be fantastic. Check it out if you’re in Chicago during that period, I’ll be there for the opening night. More details soon!
The second maze will happen in NYC at the SELECT Fair on the roof of the former DIA building during Frieze week (5/13  – 5/17). This will be a new design, using long sheets of translucent fabric stretched across poles held up by 43 performers to create a temporary structure each night. You can see a rough rendering of it here. If you’re asking yourself “where are they going to find 43 performers?”, consider yourself recruited! In addition to helping us realize this crazy thing, you’ll see great performance by the likes of Lee Renaldo, Arto Lindsay, and others. If you’re interested get in touch with me or with Sam at <theregattasgroup@gmail.com>.

Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you at some of these events!
