A monthly interdisciplinary salon of art, words, music, and other creative experiments. The mission is to create space for engagement, exchange, and inspiration among artists and other creators. Each month the location and participants determine the format of the event.

This month we invite your id (the darkest of the Freudian triad, the animal instincts, the deeper desires) over to De-construkt [projekts] to eat, drink, and just be. In Freud’s own words: we call it a chaos, a cauldron full of seething excitations…. It is filled with energy reaching it from the instincts… Artists and thinkers are invited to bring their ids along with a creative dish to a giant indoor picnic where art will be lining the walls and artists will present live works.

Presenters will include Michael Newton, Andy Cavatorta, Jon Wetterau,Noah Xifr, Max Gnar & his Bat Fiends, Atley Loughridge, Rebecca Posner and Daniel Veksler.

Sonam11 – Vector Talk: Four Levels of Parallels presentation and musical performance titled Menstrual Cycle by Kyungmi Lee and Mara Mayer.

Exhibiting artists include Zachary Cummings, Leonardo Madriz, Cheryl Paswater, Heather Phelps-Lipton, Julia Whitney Barnes Karla Carballar Melissa Eder, Maria Baraybar and live drawing with Alan Bolle.

Anyone with an id is welcome to attend, potluck style.

“The Id Picnic” will be held on Oct. 24th from 7:30pm-11:30pm at De-construkt [projekts] in Red Hook.
