Description

At The Pixel Party , the Kolaj Fest community will assemble a monumental 12-foot by 8-foot artwork, led by artist Lance Carlson. As you enter the event, you will be handed a pixel in the form of a 3-inch square collage and be invited to place it on a grid. As the evening progresses, an image will emerge. In doing this, we perform in a fullbodied, living, breathing way what occurs in digital space.

Lance Carlson is an Atlanta-based artist with an architectural background. He is a founding member and past co-president of the Atlanta Collage Society and has been a Signature member of National Collage Society. In 2012, he designed and helped implement “The Marilyn Project” with the Atlanta Collage Society. This monumental (8-foot square) work is made of 841, three-inch square collages that assemble to form a giant image of Andy Warhol’s iconic portrait of Marilyn Monroe. At Kolaj Fest New Orleans, Carlson will assemble and present “La Joconde”, a similar project, started in Orquevaux, France in March 2020.

Featured Artists, whose animated GIFs will be projected throughout the evening:

Amara Hartman (New York, New York, USA) | Caelina March (Paris, France) | Daniel Hedin (Varberg, Sweden) | Elizaveta Velikanova (Moscow, Russia) | Jennifer Roche (Chicago, Illinois, USA) | Jody Zellen (Santa Monica, California, USA) | Julie Eisenberg Pitman (Brooklyn, New York, USA) | Katherine MacDonald (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) | MJ Connors Davison (Portland, Oregon, USA) | Nicole Czapinski (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA) | Robert Matejcek (La Junta, Colorado, USA) | Sarah Amacker (Zachary, Louisiana, USA) | Serguei Silva (Novo Lima, Minas Gerais, Brazil)
