Creative directors and producers Haley Morgan Miller and Ragin Smith invite you to attend Fabled Narcissism, a multidisciplinary art show featuring dance performances and visual art exhibitions, followed by projected works, drinks, music, piercings, and flash tattoos. Over 20 emerging artists will showcase their work at Ivy House Studio, 322 Troutman Street in Brooklyn, NY on March 19th and 20th at 8pm.
This cutting-edge event melds movement, theater, dance, drawing, sculpture, sound, photography, textiles, media art, video art, immersive experiences, and audience participation into an evening full of mysticism and fantasy. Miller and Smith aspire to strengthen the connections between artists and their community, as well as encourage diversity of thought through fresh insights from a range of local artists. Fabled Narcissism fosters emerging artists’ will to experiment within their creative desires, while financially supporting their endeavors and continuing artistic conversation with the community. Join us to engage with and question art as well as talk to the artists of Fabled Narcissism. Tickets are $20 and available via Eventbrite. Learn more about the artists. Selected visual artwork will be for sale at listed prices.
A fable is a fictitious tale, perhaps conveying a moral lesson. Some stories and scientific research describe that the more narcissistic an artist is the more recognized their work becomes. Is this egotistical celebrity necessary to be celebrated in one’s artistic career, or is the quality and message of an artist’s work enough to resonate in the world? When an art-goer departs the moment, they are left with a fable through which they describe their ideas and opinions on the art they witnessed. Is this a narcissistic act to place oneself in the image of the artist or a pathway into understanding the work?
