Friday night barbeques best encapsulate the essence of Mount Tremper Arts. In these hybrid evenings, artists share work with audience members in an intimate, informal setting. And then, everyone shares thoughts and a feast directly from the MTA garden! During these meals, all perspectives are welcomed as we find the lively intersections (and digressions) between rigorous contemporary art practices and many other walks of life.   
Friday, July 15
Film screening of Tim Davis’s The Upstate New York Olympics. In this work (named “funniest and most engaging” by ArtInfo.com at the 2011 Armory Show) Davis invents new sporting events like “Abandoned Building Bowling” and performs them for the camera. Followed by discussion with the artist.
Friday, July 22
What We Know So Far (Mike Rugnetta and Patrick Davison) shares an extremely fast-paced and fun multimedia performance in which they test (and reveal) the accidental experts at cognitive multitasking we have all become. Whew.
