Pecha Kucha Night #8

This evening will feature presentations from nine Being Absent artists along with two special presenters, Joan Linder and Ben Van Dyke, from the faculty of the Visual Studies program at the University at Buffalo.

Pecha Kucha is an international network of local forums for creative exchange. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each—giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.

The entire main exhibition at the Artspace Buffalo gallery will be on view Saturday during regular gallery hours (12 pm to 4 pm). Artspace will also be open during the special hours of 6 pm to 8 pm before the Saturday Pecha Kucha event, for those who have not yet had an opportunity to see all the work in the show.
