LAN Project (Local Area Network) is a collaborative art production created by Melanie Gonzalez & Tyler PSwitch Dow. Launching in June 2016 with an art exhibition and closing with a music festival, the LAN creators are bringing multimedia art from the walls of the internet to their hometown in The Bronx, NY.
The LAN Project Exhibition showcases the works of 8 millennial artists (including the two curators) of diverse backgrounds: digital media, photography, sculpture, painting & live performance. This exhibition features artists from different neighborhoods, art scenes & industries celebrating the experience of constantly undergoing rapid change. The opening featured a live performance of Frac/King KOO, a live action mixtape from Tyler PSwitch Dow.
The LAN MIND FEST is the musical extension of the project, presenting art that cannot be contained to a canvas or sculpture setting. This closing festival features a comedy set and music performances by artists from a multitude of genres.
The closing festival will be held at the Bronx Music Heritage Center on Saturday, June 25th , 2016 from 2pm-7pm. Suggested entry donation is $5. This exhibition was made in partnership with BxArts Factory, BMHCLab & WHEDco.
