VOYAGE: Sarah Saturday as GARDENING, NOT ARCHITECTURE
January 7 – 28 | Opening Reception Saturday, January 7 6–9PM
COOP Gallery is pleased to present GARDENING, NOT ARCHITECTURE (SARAH SATURDAY) as the artist-in-residence for the month of January. The residency will include an installation in the gallery with artwork, props, costumes, and footage from the upcoming new release, plus chances to attend a private rehearsal of the new live show ahead of its world premiere in 2023. Voyage is the latest multimedia project from Nashville-based music artist Gardening, Not Architecture, featuring a mix of live performance with innovative short films and vibrant original songs. This live visual album explores the shifting relationship we have with our complex and layered identities – those parts of ourselves both positive and negative that are always trying to protect us, sometimes to our detriment.
Gardening, Not Architecture will have private rehearsal performances on January 14, 15*, 19, 20, 21, 22*, 26, 27, 28. Each rehearsal starts at 7:00 with the exception of the Sunday rehearsals on January 15 & 22, which start at 5:00. Doors open 1 hour prior to showtime. Performances are free to attend, with multiple opportunities to make donations at the show. Visit www.gardeningnotarchitecture.com/coop-residency/rehearsal-screening to reserve your tickets.
