Don't Miss Mana Contemporary's Fall Open House This Sunday
Milk has your weekend plans covered – Mana Contemporary’s Open House will be held this Sunday on September 15th from 1-7pm in Jersey City. Fostering a creative environment, the organization is setting camp at their flagship Jersey location, to promote an exchange of ideas between artists and their collaborators of various disciplines; from painters and photographers to sculptors, dancers, filmmakers, and sound engineers. Don’t miss the exciting opportunity to be a part of this immersive experience that promises a more personal approach to contemporary art.
Founded in 2011, Mana Contemporary hosts two open houses in the spring and fall each year, creating an inviting community for contemporary artists and art lovers through exhibitions, studio programs, and workshops. Mana’s network was originally founded in New Jersey and has further expanded to include Mana Chicago and Mana Miami.
The open house presents an amazing lineup of artists and musicians from Dani Cole, DJ Sabine Blaizin, Segunda Quimbamba, Ray Smith, to Andy Warhol, and more. Performance artist, Trina Mannino, will open the show with Brutta ma Buona, which explores the history of female labor along with the ancient weaving tradition of Tappeti Ericini in Sicily, paired the photography of Letizia Battaglia.
Don’t miss the original American Folk performance by Rob Garcia in partnership with Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records, followed by an Indian percussion ‘Chhandayan’ lead by Samir Chatterjee, a virtuoso tabla player who is known for fusing Indian and non-Indian music. There will also be opportunities to support social change with an installation by Heliotrope Foundation; the artist will be selling curated limited edition prints with all proceeds benefiting Heliotrope’s long-term relief efforts in Haiti.
A shuttle bus service is offered from Milk Studios in Manhattan to Mana Contemporary. Shuttles will depart every half hour, starting at 12:30 PM and ending at 5 PM.
We hope to see you there!
