ARTBASH at native hostel; November 10th, 2017
ARTBASH, Art Alliance Austin’s BIGGEST membership drive and fundraiser of the year, returned in 2017 to Native Hostel in East Austin. This event helped kick-off the East Austin Studio Tour on Friday, November 10th with the venue open to the public for the first weekend of EAST.
Art Alliance Austin teamed up with Big Medium to create an exhibition and lounge at Native Hostel. This was a unique destination for art enthusiasts, artists, and gallerists. Art Alliance Austin commissioned eight local artists to create new works that explored the idea of intersection through immersion + mobility. This addressed the experience of being consumed and/or in the action of motion. Each piece contributed to the architecture of the space by pushing the boundaries of the viewer experience.
The Art Alliance Austin at Native Hostel exhibition featured a Happy Hour with artist talks with participating artists Teruko Nimura and Suzanne Wyss. Refreshments were provided by Stella San Jac and Chef Martin Wilda.
