A.K. Burns and Katherine Hubbard will begin two months of work at Recess as part of its signature program, Session. Recess invites artists in Session to use its storefront space as studio, exhibition venue and grounds for experimentation. During their first public collaboration, Burns and Hubbard will adapt Recess into a working installation that will intentionally conflate the hair and art salon. They consider the salon a site for public engagement. The Brown Bear is a space to gather, exchange ideas and generate personal aesthetics; a site to collectively explore, what does it look like? During public hours, visitors may come in to receive free body-hair modifications and add to the dialogue surveying the paradigms of appearance.
The artists will be on site to provide DROP-IN hair requests on Thursdays and Fridays.
By APPOINTMENT ONLY on Saturdays. No do’s done on Wednesdays.
ALL WELCOME EVERYDAY.
