Buffalo Arts Studio Summer Solstice at Silo City is an immersive arts event that will be held at the historic Silo City, in Buffalo, New York through an exciting partnership between Buffalo Arts Studio and Silo City. This event will take place on the Summer Solstice, June 21, 2019 with a VIP Reception from 5:00-7:00pm and General Admission from 7:00-9:30pm.
The Silo City Summer Solstice will focus on the creation and exhibition of up to six new works by emerging and established visual artists that engage the unique Silo City environment, address relevant, contemporary issues, and explore new material, media, and installation possibilities. Participating artists include: Avye Alexandres, Brandon Geissmann, Justina Dziama, Landon Moreis, Michael Camillaci and Sara Svisco, and rhizomedas xxx: a collaboration between ALM (Andrea Lee McCullough)and SXZ (Stephen X. Zimmerer).
The artwork will be site-specific and designed to interact with the two buildings at the north-eastern tip of the site; the Perot Grain Elevator and Malt House. The installations will be inside and outside of the two main structures and artists will be encouraged to take into special consideration the changing sunlight that moves over and across the site on the longest days of the year.
The six artworks from the exhibition will remain on the Silo City site, enduring or deteriorating as part of the living arts and architectural experience embedded in this reclaimed industrial site.
