The work in Minneapolis artist and media innovator Paige Dansinger's first solo exhibition is largely created using #DrawArt, an iPad program she co-developed to connect new media with audiences. The focus of the show is the self-portrait she made, using the app, of her version of Henri Matisse's Reclining Odalisque (Harmony in Red) with herself inserted. During the exhibition, she'll team up with Joan Vorderbruggen, founder of Artists in Storefronts, to once again recreate the work, reclining in SOOlocal's front window, iPad in hand. Audiences are invited to participate as well by using #DrawArt or another drawing app and sharing their work on social media using the hashtag #HarmonyInRed. An art historian as well, Dansinger says she has been "wandering through the Diaspora of art history, searching for my identity and asserting myself along the journey." There will be an opening reception from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, August 16.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Aug. 16. Continues through Sept. 15, 2013
