Archaic Revival - 
Closing Celebration

January 19th

7-10 pm 

at the TBD Community Space & Gallery

Visual and kinetic artist Bobbin started Breakin in the Northwest HIP HOP scene in 1997. The movement and expression of the dance captures a subconscious archive full

of life and raw emotion. Through cyphers, Breakin embodies a communal language for diverse individuals to share complex experiences and witness each person's perspective.

Recently, Bobbin began translating this subconscious internal dialog into a visual medium. Using canvases and large pieces of reclaimed wood, Bobbin creates acrylic and sumi ink abstractions. In his own words, “This shedding and surrendering to the raw power of improvised movement and emotion is done abstractly, helping express complex perspectives in a stark and ever changing representation. The feeling of losing it all, but finding it at the same time in the organized chaos of the universe.”

 

Beacon Arts is excited to share Bobbin’s unique intersection of B-boying and a visual medium at the TBD Community Arts Space. Closing Celebration includes Dance Demos, Music, Gallery Show and Cash Bar. Show closes 1/20. Stop in to experience something truly unique in Seattle!

Black in Seattle

Sunday, July 9, 3:30 -  5 PM. This is a screening of a throwback video that was locally made by local actors from Seattle's Central Area. "Involvement" is a short 20 minute video that was produced in 1968 by Christian & Coffin Co. for AT&T and other phone companies in Seattle, WA to be used to train hiring managers in diversifying and promoting inclusion in the workplace. It follows the journey of the lead actor Josh (Clarence Bibbs) through the hiring and onboarding process in a predominantly white organization. It also features fascinating vintage images of Seattle's Central Area in 1968. How much has Seattle really changed? How much has it stayed the same? After the video, we will be joined by Clarence Bibbs, the actor who was featured in the video, for a short discussion on what Seattle was like then, and what, if anything, has really changed.

Babaylan and Baybayin

Sunday, July 16, 3:00 -  5 PM. This is an interactive knowledge building exhibit and discussion space to delve deeper into the places that gender held in ancient Philippines. Using archival literature, we will build on what we know about ancient Philippines and the sacred space that women and "third gender" people occupied in the Islands. Along with the Babaylan exploration we will also be working on our baybayin, indigenous Philippine script which was widely in use pre-contact.  Literature shows that indigenous Pilipinos were highly literate and yet no writings from babaylans or shamans survived once colonization began.  As an artist I view the relearning of indigenous script an act of resistance, an undoing of the trauma that was incurred upon my people.  

 

Doors will be open from 3:00 to 6:00 pm.  Come by 4:00 if you want to join the short informal discussion.
