Call to artists: In Motion 2015

GeneralIn Motion

HAYP pop-up gallery is seeking artists to be a part of a traveling installation on October 29, 2015. The site of installation will be the interior of a South Caucasus Railway passenger car. The train will depart from Yerevan Station at 8am and arrive in Gyumri at noon. We seek artists of both visual and performing arts. The artist(s) must assist with the installation and disassembling of the work(s). The length of the installation will be announced in the near future but could range from seven to ten days.train cart

We will allow visual artists to propose a variety of mediums for this project; performers may also explain their concepts. Both must keep in mind the physical and timely constraints of the train.

The theme

“In Motion” plays with the transitional state of our context: the train. A train is always between places, and the installation itself should reflect th12088548_10104357110372689_1930018338040515723_ne transient state of time and place. We encourage artists to propose installations that are interactive, and show the passage of time through people’s engagement with the art. Maybe they can leave something behind or take something with them…? We are open to your ideas!

HAYP 2.0: Call To Artists!

ANKAPital_call_to_artistsներքո տրված է Հայերեն լեզվով

CALL TO ARTISTS!

HAYP Pop Up Gallery presents,

“ANKAPital” a Collective Exhibit

April 2015, Yerevan AM

Application deadline: March 30, 2015

Send to: info.hayp@gmail.com

Here it is guys, our “Call to artists” for HAYP Pop Up Gallery’s next exhibition, “ANKAPital” on view in Yerevan in April, 2015. Specific dates and location still to-be-determined, so stay tuned!

 Below you’ll find the exhibition concept in both English and Armenian for your convenience, but here’s a quick summary of the exhibition theme.

ANKAPital in a nutshell:

For HAYP Pop Up Gallery’s second project, we will be featuring a collective exhibition in mixed media with an urban feel and a focus on graphic arts: Street Art, Illustration, Video/Projection, installation and Painting will be the principal media. ANKAPital asks artists to pay attention to the “awkwardness” of their surroundings. What about your contemporary culture seems ironic, contradictory, or even out of place to you? All of the exhibiting artists share a highly contemporary, young, and bold voice. The selected works will be statement pieces: political, provocative, erotic, and/or simply funny- this is not a passive exhibit. This is a declaration of vitality that embraces the adventurous. The works are here, now, and they call for your attention! The urban style of the exhibit, in both the selection and the display of the works, intends to highlight the dynamic, creative, and innovative buzz that is typical of large metropolis and that is the backdrop for united disunity!

New Year- New Projects

by Anna K. Gargarian


Happy New Year everyone! I know January is already over, but better late than never. After a dynamic winter season for the start of HAYP Pop Up Gallery – the launching of our crowdfunding campaign, our first exhibit “Frame of Mind: Context and Perspective”, and a well-attended Event Week- the HAYP team took a little break to fuel up.

A little update about the team

A lot of you have had the pleasure of meeting Charlotte in Yerevan: her high energy, pep, charm, and French accent are hard to miss. For our more distant followers, you’ve probably read her “Behind the Scenes” articles, or seen her in our crowdfunding video. Unfortunately, Charlotte won’t be with us in Yerevan until this summer (she’ll be finishing University in Paris), but you may find her every once in a while on the Blog writing about the art scene in Paris and whatnot. We look forward to having her back with the team (and a fancy degree) this summer for our HAYP Summer Festival.

Oscar, who was the mastermind behind our crowdfunding campaign, is currently working in Kapan, just outside of Yerevan. He’ll continue to promote us through our Social Media, and maybe we’ll even “Pop up” in his hood (watch out Kapan!).  😉

Lilit Markosian, one of the artists in our last exhibit “Frame of Mind: Context & Perspective”, has been a huge help with designing our Social Media graphics. You’ll be seeing more of her as a co-organizer for this next exhibit.

If anyone’s interested in helping out, please don’t hesitate to contact us! We need all the help we can get, especially as the exhibition date approaches. Let us know where your interests lie, we need help with exhibition installation and set-up, and coordinating Event Week (concerts, talks, film screenings etc.), even volunteering as a bar tender for opening/closing nights! Keep us posted: info.hayp@gmail.com

HAYP 2.0 Coming soon this April

We’re now working in full “action-mode” to plan our next project, let’s call it HAYP 2.0 for now. We’ll be popping up next in April in Yerevan (exact location to-be-determined), and we’ll follow the same format as our first project: 10 days of exhibition and an Event Week. The theme and artists will be different, and we’ll be posting the exhibition concept and “Call To Artists” within a week, so make sure to check out the HAYP on our Blog and Social Media for updates.

That’s it for now, thanks for reading and keep following us for news and info on our upcoming projects.

The HAYP Experiment

by Anna K. Gargarian


 

When sharing my excitement about HAYP with friends and acquaintances in Yerevan, the first reaction I get is a perplexed look followed by,

“A pop-up gallery?” To which I reply,

“Yeah, are you familiar with Pop ups?”

“Um… yes, I had them when I was a kid,” their eyebrows twisting as they try to imagine a gallery filled with spreads of books revealing standing paper cutouts of all sorts and sizes. Not a bad idea, but wrong type of Pop Up.

A Pop Up is a temporary installation in an unexpected location. The first Pop Ups were in retail and have been around for several years in major cities like New York, San Francisco, Paris, and London where real estate is expensive. Pop Up Shops allowed new companies to have sample sales, test the market and their product, without getting involved in heavy licensing. From there came the Pop Up Gallery, which took off in not only those major cities, but also bustling art hubs like Chicago, Berlin, Cape Town, and Mumbai. Amsterdam even hosts a PopUpWeek featuring events and talks on ideas, innovation, and methods of hosting a successful Pop Up.

Today there are even companies specialized in Pop Up spaces and events like Openhouse in New York, or Storefront in San Francisco. They advertise “Pop-up ready spaces” and even provide marketing and event planning to ensure a smooth Pop Up experience. Real estate brokerage companies are starting to add Pop Ups as a type of property available for clients. All of this is evidence that Pop Ups are not only a trend, but a successful enterprise with a real market.

Now, I’m not going to pretend to know about the real estate market, nor am I professing to be a Pop Up expert. But I do know as a lover of art, a city person, and a curious wanderer, it’s an exciting viewing experience- an experience that is missing in Yerevan.

What do I mean by “experience”? As design arts curator Kory Rogers from the Shelburne Museum told journalist Sally Pollak of the Burlington Free Press, (Pop-up galleries: A growing trend in Burlington’s art scene, May 2013)

“Defining features of pop-up galleries are that they come and go, and typically appear in places not usually associated with art exhibitions. They possess an element of surprise in which viewers kind of stumble upon art when and where they don’t expect it, thus altering the experience of seeing it”.

It’s all about context. Burlington City Arts curator DJ Hellerman tells Pollak that,

“Institutions have histories and brands and reputations…You don’t get that with a pop-up gallery. You’re popping up in a space that is not your own, in a space that is temporary until somebody else comes along to claim it”.

So the experience is affected by several factors, the first is the objectivity of the viewer who is confronted with art in an unexpected space. It’s like accidentally coming across great street art, as opposed to intentionally entering a museum for the purpose of viewing art. Those are two totally different mindsets, and they affect how we see art because of what we bring to the work.

The second is the objectivity of the space. In his renowned article Inside the White Cube from 1976, art critic and historian Brian Odoherty argues that the type of galleries that came about in the 20th century were as important to modern art as the works themselves. He called them “chambers”, or sterile, white, windowless rooms removed from time, that created an almost religious experience for the viewer. HAYP is no longer following the “white cube” model, nor are we viewing art in its “original habitat” like a Madonna and Child commissioned for a Renaissance church altar. We are disrupting typical viewing contexts, and constantly changing them.

I think that there’s also something to be said about the under-construction environment common to the Pop Up. In “How Buildings Learn” an excellent six-part three-hour BBC series that aired in 1997, Stewart Brand states that “low road buildings keep being valuable precisely because they’re disposable”. In other words, what Brand calls “low road buildings”, or cheap spaces, are actually more empowering structures to inhabit. Brand says that their malleability inspires change, it makes you active instead of passive, which inspires freedom, creativity and experimentation. The most creative enterprises happen in these types of spaces. That’s exactly what HAYP is all about: experimentation. We hope to inspire experimental art, and also create an experimental space where ideas can be shared and new projects can be born. On a larger scale, we hope that HAYP will make the public see the potential of these spaces and how important art is to making us see and reinterpret our environment in order to envision a better future.

With this in mind, how context affects the way we view and show art, we are excited to start the HAYP experiment! In the spirit of this theme, we will open our first Pop Up in December with the exhibition, “Frame of Mind: Context and Perspective”. If you’re in Yerevan, we hope that you’ll pop by our Pop Up.
