BINGO at Current Space

Before I left for an apprenticeship at Bread and Puppet in Vermont, I sent work to be included in another group project created by Andrew Liang and Michael Benevento.  

Each year since I've lived in Baltimore, Andrew and Mike come up with games or other large group projects that include many of our friends for art and production help.  Years in the past- I was involved with Human Foosball and  Ball Movement II: Mole Balls and CART.  I'm sorry I missed the event, but Eamon Espey has graciously offered to write a scene report, and I'll add that in here when he's back from his trip to Upstate NY- where he's on the crew helping to build an Earthship until September.
July 13-14, 8pm-12am
$10 per card, valid for all games, all night

During the summer of 2011 Current Space presented CART, an exhibition that transformed part of the gallery space into a fully-functioning mini-market which featured affordably-priced works of art made by fine artists from all around the world.  BINGO serves as an extension of the philosophy behind CART, namely that art is an essential part of everyday life and that all people, regardless of income or social status, should be able to afford to purchase fine art.  

For BINGO, Current Space will be transformed into a post-modern bingo hall. We will screen print limited edition bingo cards, which will be designed by different artists, and everyone who attends the exhibition and pays the entry fee will receive the bingo card design of their choice. Bingo will be played, of course, so additional cards (i.e. artwork) may be purchased to increase one's chances of winning. Prizes will consist of freebies from local businesses and musicians. Like the bingo that our grandparents play, BINGO will include a caller, prizes, and time to socialize, but unlike our elders' bingo, ours will include music, sound effects, and strobe lights.
