The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred

BY DANA MCKNIGHT
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"Number 1. Be an ornery artist. You're mad. You went to art school. You go to shows in basements and living rooms. You are the poster child of the scurvy-laced bohemia. Your parents can't pay your rent."

In The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, artist and founder of Dreamland Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY, Dana Mcknight, illustrates twenty steps to carving out a cutting-edge, artist-run space outside of the dominant, institutional realm. Mcknight cautions, "To be an institution is to own-- ­­­to place value on possession rather than action. To fixate on conservative contentment rather than Hope and Possibility. Artist-led spaces fizzle out all the time. Let us not leave behind the phoenix eggs to merely touch a tusk in the Elephant graveyard."

Creating Legends

  When you make a presentation, you don’t always have the opportunity to hire a designer — after this, you won’t need one. Ellen Finkelstein wants to help us create our own powerful, vibrant presentations. In “How to Create Slides” from PKN Fairfield Vol. 1, she speaks to those who feel that making slides for a presentation can be a real challenge, and breaks down her methods of creating simple, communicative presentations.

5 reasons why Pecha Kucha is **THE** night out in Coventry this Friday...

Yes, it's Pecha Kucha night at the Tin Music & Arts centre from 7pm this Friday, here's 5 reasons why this night of merry amusement just might be for you... 1) If you like TED talks, stand up comedy or open mic nights - Pecha Kucha is sort of like all three rolled into one. At each night there's a massive mix of zany, opinionated, inspirational and downright oddball people talking (or perhaps shouting, dancing, miming or singing) through a series of 20 images. You don't have to worry about stifling any yawns, each person is only allowed 20 seconds per image... before you know it you've had six and a half minutes of eclectic entertainment... and after 3 or 4 you realise the £3 entry is definitely giving your two bob's worth. 2) TFI Friday and alcohol is served. The Tin offer loads of continental drinks and local brews including Coventry's very own Byatt's beer. 3) Fighting winter flu? You can watch Pecha Kucha from your sickbed - All the Pecha Kucha presentations are put online at www.pechakucha.org/cities/coventry. Seriously laugh-out-loud recommendations from the Pecha Kucha Coventry 'Christmas' edition are: How to Annoy Your Friends on Facebook at Christmas by Simon Fairbanks and Placing Children on Your Lap: the Art of Ventriloquism by Michael Mayhew.  You can also follow antics via Twitter live on the night @PKN_coventry. 4) Try it and like it? You can go to a Pecha Kucha night ANYWHERE in the world. Originally starting in Tokyo (the tongue twisting "Pecha Kucha" title means "chit chat"), nights now take place in over 700 cities worldwide. So next time you're surfing the Air B&B waves to Dubai, Budapest, San Francisco or Paris you can also take in a Pecha Kucha night*. 5) If you get the itch after seeing (and possibly secretly mocking) others, you can have a go too. Anyone is welcome to sign up to 'do' a Pecha Kucha night on any subject, in any style, with any images and props you might care to use. Once you've completed this curious right-of-passage, you realise there's no return; it's addictive, it's fun and it's a serious preference to sitting in and worrying about your post-January diet. See you on Friday! *disclaimer - not all nights may be as good as Pecha Kucha Coventry. Please also note that you could be educated or inspired and that there's a serious risk of meeting people... PECHA KUCHA COVENTRY Friday 20th February 7pm-11pm 'Design your City' - a theme for Global Pecha Kucha Night @ The Tin Music & Arts (formerly Taylor John's House), Leicester Row, Coventry, West Midlands, CV14BN Presenters, event details, maps here.

Creating a presentation: UPDATE

Each PechaKucha presentation consists of 20 images shown for 20 seconds each - they will auto-advance as a slideshow, so there is no going back, pausing, or skipping around. Please use PowerPoint - if you don't have it, skip to the next section. Create 20 slides of one (or more) images each Slides can also be text, but text is best kept to a minimum so it doesn't distract from your talk. Try an intro and/or closing slide with your name and contact info (these count toward your 20 slides). After your slides are created and organized, make sure your slideshow is set to auto-advance after 20 seconds - no mouse-click needed. (In PowerPoint, this is under the "transitions" tab. Make sure you click Apply to All so each slide gets the same timing.) TEST your slideshow several times. PRACTICE the presentation if you want what you're saying to line up with certain images. Once the slideshow is set the way you want it, share with us via Dropbox.com or similar file-sharing method. OR - if the above has you scratching your head, never fear. choose 20 images make sure the file names indicate their order, ie "01 Sheehan.jpg" "02 Sheehan.jpg" etc. Share them with us via a folder on Dropbox (www.dropbox.com) or your favorite file-sharing method. I'll make the PowerPoint (no frills or fanciness, but I'll include your name) and upload the video for you.

Performing, Creating and Collaborating

"The great thing about collaboration is that it is driven by structure." In "Performing, Creating and Collaborating" from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol.18, Christopher Allery has had a 20 year creative career that has focused on the art of collaboration. This began with an art show during his second year of his Bachelor of Arts (Visual Art). Staged at the Majestic Theatre in Pomona, Chris worked with fellow friends and fellow undergrads to create an immersive installation and performance incorporating found objects, artificial light, and original music which was performed on the Majestic’s grand piano. In this presentation, Chris shares collaborative relationships that he has explored have been fruitful but also stretched him sometimes painfully, but also professionally, and creatively.
