@ Squeaky Wheel – 712 Main St, Buffalo, NY 14202
On Saturday, November 21st, 2009, Squeaky Wheel presents the first edition of a new ongoing artist showcase geared towards featuring the work of the many emerging and innovative media and installation artists in the Western New York region. Squeaky Wheel’s Here & Now Regional Artist Showcase will start the series off by showing PLACES, a new media installation (in the upstairs gallery) and a screening of video work (8pm) by local Buffalo artist Mili Pradhan.
PLACES is an interactive installation that brings viewers to the intimate space of the everyday through repetitive cycles of domestic activities. These activities, contingent on the images, evoke duration as a mode of both movement and absorption.
Originally from Nepal, Mili Pradhan is a video and photography artist currently living and teaching in Buffalo, NY. She is a recipient of the UB Gender Institute Creative Arts Award (2008), and the New York State of
Council on Arts Video Regrant (2007) for production of video works that have been screened at numerous symposiums and exhibit venues including the Western New York Media Art Exhibition, and Out of the Cube Symposium. She is currently a graduate student at The University of Buffalo, Department of Media Study.
Squeaky Wheel’s Here &; Now Regional Artist Showcase is currently accepting submissions from emerging and established media artists that reside in Western New York. All genres, styles, and length are welcome! Installation artists and performers are also encouraged to apply. Please include a brief description of the work, short bio, screening history (if appropriate), and a DVD (or mini-DV) of your work. All entries will
become part of our Media Library. Deadline is ongoing. Submit works to: Squeaky Wheel, 712 Main St., Bflo, NY 14202 (ATTN: Here & Now)
