This Week at Artisphere
I’ll be working in the Work In Progress Gallery at Artisphere in Arlington Virginia from Wednesday to Friday this week. All the details are listed here…
Beginning in July 2004, Richmond, Virginia based visual artist Mickael Broth began serving a ten month jail sentence for graffiti he painted in the region. Since his release, he has worked as a fine artist and sign painter, showing work around the country in venues that range from abandoned warehouses to museum walls. In late 2011, he began writing a memoir detailing his experiences with incarceration and the relevance of his personal story to society at large. During his Artisphere residency, Mickael will be working on finishing the final edits to his book, Gated Community, and creating original works of art using the same limited methods and tools he used while serving time in a jail cell (i.e. ball point on legal paper; M&M’s soaked in a bottle cap full of water to make water colors and using q-tips as brushes).
Onsite residency hours:
Wed April 18 – Fri April 20: 4-11pm,
Fri May 11: 4-11pm, Sat May 12: Noon – 11pm
Sun May 13: noon – 5pm
