@ Marine A, Silo City (Silo City Row, Buffalo, NY 14203)
Free and open to the public
Squeaky Wheel returns to the legendary halls of Silo City for the premiere of The Average Attendee Live in Person! An absurdist take on housing market educationals, The Average Attendee Live in Person features projections, live and virtual performance, costumes, resounding in Silo City’s famous space. Interactive art works in Silo A and a structured, improvised performance converge for a transformational evening on how anyone, even you, could be a master the real estate market. Join us at Silo City for this exciting 40 minute performance by Avye Alexandres, our Summer 2018 Silo City Workspace Resident!
Avye Alexandres was born in Athens, Greece, and moved to the United States at the age of six. Her multidisciplinary art practice, which investigates the psychosocial ramifications of structures and space, stems from her background in photography and theatre. Evolving from site-based performances her work now encompasses immersive sculpture, locative media, experimental digital narratives, conceptual works, photography and video, as well as participatory experiences and installations. In 2015, she received her MFA in Art and Emerging Practices from the University at Buffalo, and has exhibited at venues such as the Burchfield Penney Art Center, The Soap Factory, IFP-MN Center for Media Arts, and the Weismann Art Museum.
