  4. In an effort to combat culturally induced impatience and shortened attention spans, student art collective Co. H presents ATTENTION, a juried, hour-long screening of video art. Time-based art (in other words, work that is to be experienced in duration) suffers as a result of this condition. As such, the work here is presented in succession, as a screening, rather than installed in space to be addressed in passing. ATTENTION features 15 videos from both students and professors working regionally in Nashville and Chattanooga, as well as from artists based nationally in Pennsylvania and New York.

    Artists:

    Benjamin Anderson

    Sharyn Bachleda

    Keren Beddoe

    Kellie Bornhoft

    Bradley Braunschweig

    Ann Catherine Carter & Tyler Blankenship

  8. SPIT no. 2 - SEVEN TYPES OF PLAY
    HEY EVERYONE! Issue no. 2 of the Co. H zine SPIT is now here! This issue is to commemorate/ coincide with/ supplement/ expand upon our upcoming council show Co. H Presents: Seven Types of Play, opening at the the Watkins Arcade Gallery this Saturday! CHECK IT OUT

     
  9. CO. H and the upcoming Seven Types of Play show featured on the Nashville Scene! Thanks for the coverage folks!

    One of the best things about the downtown art crawl is its built-in audience. That’s also the worst part — no matter how mediocre the horse paintings or scrap-metal sculptures are, put it in a gallery on the first Saturday of the month and somebody’s going to show up to look at it. But back to the good: An eager, interested audience is exactly what the doctor ordered for burgeoning artists wanting to test the boundaries of their practice. So Watkins’ WAG (an acronym for Watkins Arcade Gallery) is a perfect venue for experimenting with an art audience, and Co. H, the artist collective that was founded there in 2011, has a plan to use that to its advantage.”

  11. Company H. and Watkins College of Art, Design & Film present:

    Seven Types of Play
    April 5th, 6-9pm, at WAG in the Arcade
    Nashville Art Crawl

    The show’s concept was guided by notion of “play,” specifically through the National Institute for Play’s delineation of seven distinct types: Attunement, Body, Object, Social, Imaginative, Narrative and Transformative. With each artist creating within one type of play, rules operated in place of theme as a structuring element and built continuity through the very act of making.

    The seven participating artists, all council members of Co. H, are:
    • Mika Agari (Fine Art), object play 
    • David Anderson (Fine Art), transformative play 
    • Aaron Harper (Fine Art), imaginative play 
    • Blake Holland (The Film School), narrative play 
    • Zack Rafuls (Fine Art), attunement play 
    • Alexine Rioux (Fine Art), body play 
    • Kayla Saito (Fine Art), social play.

    Work will include drawing, painting, video, digital prints, sculpture, performance and social practice.

    Check out the write up over at the Nashville Scene.
    Feel free to check out the Facebook event page.
