A collaboration between Adia Millett and Cauleen Smith
for threewalls Gallery & Sullivan Gallery
Beginning July 14, 2010 Adia Millett and Cauleen Smith will prepare two cocktails inspired by conversations they share with artists participating in the Sullivan galleries open Studios at SAIC.
Every Wednesday at 5pm between July 14 and August 11 Millett and Smith will engage in a conversation with a different Summer Studio artist and then concoct a delectable beverage that “tastes” like the conversation to share with the artists, staff and their guests at SAIC.
The artists conceive of this intermission as a way of transforming the shared 7th floor workspace into an informal conversational environment in which creative ideas are freely exchanged. Aside from the conversations with Summer Studio Artists and Staff, the only thing that Millett and Smith ask of all who participate in ARTIST INTERMISSION is that they bring their own cups.
Though the conversations are private and will not be recorded, the artists will take notes and invite the participants to take notes as well. These logs, a photograph of the participant(s), a photograph of the artisan cocktail, and the recipe for that cocktail will serve as a permanent record of this spirited exchange.
Wednesdays, 5pm, July 14- August 11, 2010. 7th Floor Sullivan Galleries Summer Studios.
