Reception and Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series 40th Anniversary Celebration
Tuesday, September 27, 2011, 5-7pm
Gallery Talk
October 20, 2011, noon

Through public performance, exhibition, publication, the internet, and video, the art collective Brainstormers (founded in 2005) investigates topics ranging from power structures in the art world to gender inequity in contemporary museum and gallery exhibitions.
To find out more information about the Brainstormers please visit: http://www.brainstormersreport.net.

For the exhibition, Real Time, the Brainstormers have created a site-specific installation that focuses on issues connected to the realities of being a visual artist in the contemporary art world. In the public imagination, many believe the "artist" to be a self-destructive genius who spends each day in the studio caught up in the frenzy of inspiration, challenged by the extremes of addiction and poverty or the pressures of fame. "He" is an outsider, free from the responsibilities of employment, relationships, and the common aspects of daily living. In an effort to dismantle this myth and to convey a more accurate portrait of the "artist", Brainstormers invited hundreds of contemporary artists across the country to share the intimate details of their daily lives. These artists anonymously contributed daily records and studio photographs in response to the following:
Brainstormers is interested in an anonymous hand-written record of how you spent your day yesterday. We are interested in everything from the most mundane details to larger issues. Please use whatever format makes most sense to you--the format might include lists, narrative, drawings, a calendar, or your daily planner entries. We understand that yesterday may not have been a typical day for you. That's fine.

In addition, for the duration of the exhibition, each of the Brainstormers will provide live video feed of their studio spaces and updates through Twitter that will offer additional examples of how artists spend their time.
