CAM Raleigh, 409 W. Martin Street, is hosting several upcoming free events.
Director’s Tour featuring Freehand Profit
Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019
6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Meet Los Angeles-based artist Freehand Profit at CAM’s weekly Director’s Tour on January 23 and learn more about his work featured in Above the Rim presented by PNC.
With a passion for Hip-Hop, graffiti, sneakers and art, Gary Lockwood aka Freehand Profit works and lives in Los Angeles. In 2005, he graduated from the Corcoran School of Art & Design with a BFA. In 2010, while searching for alternative materials, Lockwood began deconstructing sneakers to create gas masks. The shoes he uses are often the same coveted shoes worn on the courts by basketball players and are repurposed, calling attention to the arbitrary nature of their luxury status and giving them new worth.
Free admission. RSVP preferred but not required. RSVP to email@example.com.
Artist Talk: Eren Cannata
Sunday, January 27th, 2019
3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Meet New York-based artist Eren Cannata and learn more about his work featured in Above the Rim presented by PNC.
Growing up on tour with his dad, alongside the Beach Boys and Billy Joel, Eren Cannata (b. 1985) has always been surrounded by sound. Now a professional musician, he has gained wide commercial success, winning an Emmy for his work on Frankie Cooks: Season 3 in which he created the opening titles for the show using the sounds generated by found kitchen utensils. Using a similar technique, Cannata has created an immersive installation using the sounds of a basketball game for Above the Rim presented by PNC.
