Mass Gallery presents Learning in Public

unnamed.png

MASS Gallery is pleased to announce our upcoming program, Learning in Public. Conceived as a way of engaging with artists whose practices include live time-based events, Learning in Public is a series of discrete public performances, collaborations, and community engagements taking place in the gallery from September 22 to October 28, 2017.

Our series will feature a diverse myriad of artists including Mosaico Experiencia(ATX), Daphane Park (CDMX), Saakred (ATX), Dorian Wood (LA) and is presented in collaboration with COTFG, an Austin-based volunteer-run arts organization supporting creative expression and counterculture community. This series holds space for each guest artist to be in residence for an entire week during which time they will offer at least one opportunity for the public to engage with their practice.

The work presented by the artists in Learning in Public grapples and engages with such topics as gender identity, power, gentrification, the built and natural environments, spiritual realms and self-care. Performance art trades in the overlap between spectator and performer with an unorthodox approach which privileges fluidity over disciplinary borders. With the artist’s body and psyche at its center, coupled with time and space as its primary medium, this practice carries with it an increased sense of personal risk.

MASS presents this series without expectation or desired outcome with an emphasis on providing a safe space for audiences and performers to meet and engage. We want Learning in Public to be welcoming, and we encourage everyone – artists, visitors, and collective members – to be proactive in creating an atmosphere where the safety of others is validated. Please stay tuned to our website and social media feeds for announcements about scheduled events and open gallery hours. For more information click here.

Women & Their Work Object Lessons

  • 1710 Lavaca Street Austin, TX, 78701 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
LollipopStumble.jpg

Through large paintings, photographs, performance and a 16mm film, Denise Prince seeks to lay bare the outsized role that fantasy plays in the construction of identity and the perception of reality. In Object Lessons, Prince establishes a bold and evocative space for psychological play that blends youthful fantasies about what adulthood will be, and adult recollections of childhood, into a mythology that is both baffling and assuring. Of great interest are the ways in which each of us becomes an object and how we as objects communicate valuation. Striding the space between childhood and adulthood is the depiction of sexuality, which marks the change between them.

Sacred Feminine Sensual Yoga Class

22218600_837686736405969_5529732444502688260_o.jpg

Come unleash the goddess.
This is a safe space for women to attune to pleasure, their bodies, vaginas and femininity through Yoga!!

This space was created to remind women of the power and abundance that lies within rebuilding and deepening their relationship with their sensuality and femininity.

Sensuality is the portal of the divine feminine. When we shut it off, we are no longer connected to our power source; to ourselves. Come reconnect, in community and sisterhood.

This is a space of unlearning, relearning and reclaiming.

If you're ready to turn on the Sacred Feminine, come flow with me!

The vibes will be unmatched.

Yoga Flow 7pm-8pm

Tea and Sister Circle 8pm-8:30pm

**BRING A MUG OR TEA CUP**

Wear whatever makes you feel sexy!

Sign Up for a Practical Inquiry into the Power of Narrative and Plot Your Direction to Transformation

We tell stories to see what happens next.

That's the mission of Signal Hill. It's also our practice: Every day we witness the power of narrative to change the world.

No doubt you've caught a glimpse of this power, too. That's why you're here. And it's why you're ready to lead through story. For more information click here. 

So let us show you how.

Join Signal Hill founder Daniel Pryfogle for a unique three-hour workshop, a practical inquiry into the power of narrative to inspire team members, form culture, guide strategy, shape products and services, and engage customers – to lead through story.

Sign up if you're looking for a different way. In most organizations story is a digression or an afterthought. It's a downstream activity that follows the more important tasks upstream, like strategy and policy and decision-making. It's a soft skill not suited to the hard stuff; feel-good but not a force for change.

Yet anyone who has experienced genuine leadership knows how vital story is. Indeed, if you have ever allowed yourself to be guided by story, or felt the surge of energy because of story, or witnessed how an audience, a marketplace or even a mountain is moved by story, then you know something else: You know that story is the greatest power of humanity, and therefore the most important dimension of organizational life and leadership.

Give yourself three hours to explore your story and you'll also get this:

  • An alternative theory of change that locates the motivation for transformation in the desire to make meaning (i.e. to tell a story);
  • An introduction to narrative practices that help leaders and teams clarify what drives the enterprise and creates culture;
  • A fresh take on customer engagement through narrative marketing;
  • A hands-on creative experience to map out the direction of your story;
  • And inspiration to lead a different way.

The workshop fee is $195. Registration is limited to 30.

Don't hesitate. The world can't wait for you to lead through story!

Sign up today!

Women in Sales: Peak Performance Mindset - hosted by ESF@ATX

https-%2F%2Fcdn.evbuc.com%2Fimages%2F35413070%2F223917339698%2F1%2Foriginal.jpg

Interested in elevating your career, connecting with other professionals, and expanding your network?

There's a long-standing (and well-founded) stigma in tech.  It's traditionally been a male-dominated space.  Naturally, this creates unique challenges for the dynamic women who are paving a path in our midst and are experiencing incredible success in spite of these stigma.  In October we celebrate Women in Sales month, so we felt it obvious that we gear our inaugural event toward the peak performance mindset in Sales with the smart, savvy women in sales in Austin leading our discussion.

Q4 is here and the key to success is being in the right state of mind.  Join us for a couple of hours of targeted discussion with peers and Austin Sales thought leaders to share, learn, and network while having some grub and drinks on us. Open to women and men of all professional backgrounds.  Reach out to the organizers directly if you need free tickets. For more information click here. 

Event Hosted by Tudor Saitoc and Todd Scarborough.
