The curators of High Beams
(Los Angeles) have partnered with Hyperlink (Denver) for HB6: Convoy, the latest in a series of nomadic outdoor exhibitions, slated for the evening of Aug. 20, 2022, at the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in Lakewood, CO. The exhibition was organized by Carl Baratta (LA), Tobias Fike (Denver), and Donald Fodness (Denver), and features over 60 artists from around the West, Midwest, and California.
For the sixth installment, the Los Angeles crew will be taking the show on the road and traveling to Denver, along with several other collectives from around the Midwest and the South, partaking in their own classic American road trip that is one-part logistical, one-part performance, and one-part block party.
Situated on the campus of the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design, HB6: Convoy showcases a series of experimental works that include sculpture, video, performance, painting, and new media that respond to the site of the former Jewish tuberculosis sanitarium. Artists will display works in parking lots, in trees, along greenways, and in other public spaces around the historic campus.
Examples of work include a film by Andrew Murray (LA), showing various temporary, in situ installations that he fabricated from materials found on hikes and campsites along his trip to Colorado; a sound art piece by Hyperlink (Denver), repurposing CB radios to filter an auditory palimpsest of each member of the collective describing their artistic practice; a performance by The Art Dominatrix (LA), which explores various professional goals, including firmly-guided creative unblockings, studio visits, and portfolio reviews; a new media sculpture by Sean Noyce (LA), which evokes the spirits of the artist's paternal Mormon ancestors in Utah; a provocative 1970s-themed car wash by The Bridge Club (Denver), nodding to the original Roe v. Wade decision; a new media projection by The Experiential Co. (LA), which augments classical Greco-Roman statuary with digitized particle swarms; and text installations by Diego Juarez (LA), which consists of various poems, handwritten on translucent linen paper and hung on trees around the campus.
