ArtFiction is a new project by Rino Pizzi, in collaboration with ten writers, ten visual artists, and ten actors/performers. The group is developing ten fictional modernist visual artists and performers working in Texas between the 1940s and the 1980s.
This event will be the first announcement of the upcoming exhibition, and will present previews of articles, biographies, and reviews created by the writers, as well as images of artwork and photographs. The exhibition will be accompanied by a book/catalogue designed by DJ Stout/Pentagram.
Participants include writers Stephen Harrigan, Robert Faires, Kurt Heinzelman, Janis Bergman-Carton, Kirk Lynn, Mary Mikel Stump, Katie Robinson Edwards, Edward Carey, Saundra Goldman, and Pete Gershon; visual artists Liz Ward, Jana Swec, Sydney Yeager, Jules Buck Jones, Caroline Wright, Rick Mansfield, Stella Alesi, and Steve Wiman; performance artist Amy Diane Morrow; actors Jason Phelps, Nadine Mozon, Jeff Mills, Cami Alys, W.
