Index Art Center invites you to our fourth annual exhibition: Intersection 2013! 
Four years ago, IAC began a series of exhibitions called Intersection— to recognize and praise the tremendous talent and unique location of Downtown Newark. The shows featured work by artists located at 31 Central Avenue and 585 Broad Street. These studio spaces have been occupied by artists and creative people for more than a decade. To this day, they continue to help establish an emerging arts community of Downtown Newark.

This past June, the Index Art Center caught fire— prompting the City of Newark to shut down the second floor of our building. This is where our art spaces, galleries, studios, and workshops were located. As of now it does not seem that the gallery will re-open anytime soon. The Newark arts community has lost a significant arts destination. The building was a hotspot for creative people, groups, and projects such as IAC, Kedar Studio of Art, Beez Boutique, The Newark Print Shop, Oculus Art Collective and so on. Nine of the Intersection artists were located here. For the past four years, we have been fortunate enough to work with a terrific and diverse group of artists.

This year we are proud not only to exhibit the artists that have had studios in these buildings, we are also happy to be including a number of artists that have been instrumental not only in our community— but to IAC as well. Intersection will be held at two different locations on the same night:
The event will begin with a reception for artists Josie Barreiro and Colleen Gutwein at 27 Mix, and gradually move on to Kilkenny Alehouse located half a block away. Intersection will revolve around the Newark Arts Council’s 12th annual Open Doors event happening October 10 through October 13.
Produced, curated and organized by: Linda Chen, Heidi Hussa, and Lowell Craig

TOMORROW NIGHT!
“The New World is Going to Need Houses”, a conceptual installation Presented by Oculus Art Collaborative In conjunction with Gallery Aferro and Market Street Convergence 494 BCE, Rome. Realizing that they were crippled by taxes, debt, threat of war, arbitrary laws, and that they were less working for themselves than they were for the patricians, groups of plebians left their homes and cities en masse. They had made up the majority of the population, and without them the patricians were left without anyone to produce food, goods, and create business. They relocated to Mons Sacer, or the Sacred Mountain, and there they built their own society, thus re-appropriating power and culture.  2013 AD, America. Realizing that they were crippled by taxes, debt, threat of war, arbitrary laws, and that they were less working for themselves than they were for the 1%, groups of working class citizens left their homes and cities en masse. They had made up the majority of the population, and without them the 1% was left without anyone to produce food, goods, and create business. They relocated to the New World, and there they built their own society, thus re-appropriating power and culture. “The New World is Going to Need Houses” invites the viewer to come to Mons Sacer for a moment, and take a look into a day in the life of this conceptual ‘new’ world. On the second floor of a building in Newark, we will introduce to the viewer the collaboratively constructed homes and newfound families of those who inhabit this place- their lives, personal tendencies and practices are exposed. This exhibit opens October 11th 93 Market Street, 2nd Floor Oculus artists are: Linda Chen Alex Scott Cumming Kevin Durkin Dawn Foster Heidi Hussa Esha Kallianpur Lizzy Storm Performances TBA http://oculusart.org/
