In 2006, Tiago becomes a member of the “ The Living Culture Program”, an action that involves the civil society and the federal government in order to empower social and cultural energies, as it allows the expression of the communities’ own dynamics and bringing together actions and support aimed at developing a cooperative, solidary and transformative culture. The work developed by Tiago in this program consisted in the production of workshops and educational documents that would emancipate these communities by incentivating them to work based in “collaborative work”, networking and also teaching them to utilize multimedia techniques in order to publicize their work.
Difficult for me to express in words…as the work is the expression…
It’s not so much about the actual visual “subject” ______
It’s a sensation…a moment of understanding antecedent to language – ineffable but instantly recognizable…
The city… quiet, pulsating, alive…like a sleeping tiger…
Just beautiful…New York…New York…
I can’t say it…
A private poem to the love of your life…
On Saturday, July 7, Anya Liftig returns to Atlanta for what will be her most physically challenging performance to date. I’m a Groucho Marxist, presented by Flux Projects, will take place on Airline Street just below the Edgewood Avenue overpass. This durational performance will run from 8:30 until 11:30 p.m.
Drawing from the history of literal and socially imposed barriers in Atlanta’s past, I’m a Groucho Marxist will feature a barricade made of reclaimed materials. Liftig will attempt to cross the structure while blindfolded and partially bound. As with most of Liftig’s work, the built-in physical hardship is integral to the project, and this work in particular addresses the difficulty in crossing boundaries.

It must be something about the waterfront. Those Monetesque ripples, ripe for reflecting and dizzying one up with shifts from screen to scene. Something about the water makes everything seem so much more romantic and, in general, that’s what video festivals tend to need.

Jesse Treece is a collage artist living in Seattle, Wa. whose work screams of the simple, yet ever complex, interpretations of both the mundane and whimsical facets of life. He’s somehow managed to mix both the regular and absurd, beautiful and disturbing and put them into images that you find you could get lost in for hours. He is currently involved in a collaborative collage book project (www.icecreamkingdoms.tumblr.com) that is traveling from mailbox to mailbox around the globe.

The 22 is an online arts and literature digital magazine that seeks to explore connections and intersections between the works of artists, musicians and writers. In some portions of The 22 the structure is presented as a diptych or triptych, allowing the viewer to actively participate in the task of opening the hinge that links conversations between the pieces.
