Inspire, Incite, Ignite is a 10 year retrospective by Charlie Smith featuring inter-disciplinary work from over 70 artists of “The Art of Such n Such” collective including photography, audio, video, interactive performance, installations, artifacts, sculpture and fire!
Since Charlie Smith founded the “The Art of Such n Such” 10 years ago, his work with the collective has involved hundreds of artists trained in multiple disciplines from around the world. Charlie has also successfully involved tens of thousands of participants.
Charlie’s focus is to create an environment of phenomenal experiences for all in attendance. His spectacular and participatory work blurs the boundary between artist and audience. And the primal and provocative experiences from within the artificial environments can and will elicit strong emotional reactions, wonder and awe.
Charlie’s work and “The Art of Such n Such” is derivative of outsider art, including but not limited to, Dada, Fluxus, Burning Man, Black Mountain College, site specific art and various experimental temporal art communities.
Using “The Art of Such n Such” as a “mobile arts organism” Charlie has adapted to many situations and environments over the last decade creating a “living art experience” that has moved from small private events, to large arts and music festivals to galleries, museums, and even permanent installations.
Charlie Smith, Jaime Ladet (partner and co-instigator) and “The Art of Such n Such” invite you to be a part of this truly of-the-moment Artists’ Reception.
