In the shape of a festival - Come Make with Us was, as the title hints, an invitation to the audience to experience and participate in the works created during Summer at ALN. Through multiple stages, multiple artists and as obviously at ALN a wide range of different medias, the emergent works created during Summer Residency and Revolution:Thesis at ALN created a platform for interactions between audience, the works, the artists, the spaces and the continuous unfolding of the questions.
Revolution: Thesis at ALN together with the Summer Residency created the framework for Summer at ALN 2019. Revolution: Thesis at ALN was led by David Gersten, structured as a four week program and included a regular schedule of studio time, one-on-one studio visits with David, ALN Fellows and Visiting Artists, as well as, weekly seminars and listening critiques. The Summer Residency was a 2-4 weeks focused residency for artists interested in the opportunity to interact with ALN’s other ongoing programs and overlapping events. The Residency was structured to provide creative opportunities while developing meaningful relationships with other artists. While each of these programs had its own unique character, they both offered space for people to pursue their questions in conversation with others and create emergent works within a creative community.
