Nothing could possibly allow us to know ourselves better,than our alter ego… Except maybe photographs of them?
Wherever you may be, a concert, a political event or even an art opening, AreCity will most likely be there. This citizen, journalist led group is studying and documenting culture, while expanding an understanding of life as we know it. May 7th (Modern Art 2009), AreCity took over room 222, inviting spectators to be the subject of a comical, yet charming series of photographs (very Wes Anderson).
Between 5:00pm and 9:30pm, the room became a beacon for modern technology, with filmed live streaming, twitter updates and hundreds of photographs. This post-modern approach to documenting, communicating and fun is just what Modern Art is about!

The Mend Project’s third donation project, Spectacled will join Modern Art 2009, for a pre show. Spectacled, is a project dedicated to raising an awareness of the some 36 million people living across the globe, who are needlessly blind. The group is accepting used eyeglass donations, which will be a part of a larger installation- September 3rd in the Linen Building. Along with the eye wear drive, artists are being asked to create their own sight altering device. Handmade eyeglasses will be auctioned off and proceeds will benefit Unite For Sight.
Eyeglass donations can be made in room 114- Modern Art 2009. Donations can also be made at the Modern Hotel, Flying M Coffee House and Garage, The VAC and Trey McIntyre Dance Studios up until Sep. 3, 2009.
