Goodyear Arts is a program that sets up shop in underused buildings and offers artists residencies for two months. In addition to the studio space, the artists are paid a stipend. The artists’ work often extends to alteration of the building itself.
At the end of the residencies, Goodyear Arts hosts a celebration where the public can see the artists’ work. In addition, the events often include music and dance.
Goodyear Arts is at Camp North End. The official address of Goodyear Arts is 1720 Statesville Avenue, but you’d do just as well plugging 1824 Statesville Avenue, Camp North End’s address, into your phone. The best place to park is “The Mount” parking lot. Just follow the signs.
Goodyear Arts hosts other art and music events as well.
While you’re there, enjoy this self-guided walking tour of Camp North End’s art.
Upcoming Event at Goodyear Arts
Avant Goodyear: Film — Harry Smith’s Mahagonny
Friday, November 3, 2023, 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, November 4, 2023, 8:30 p.m.
Harry Smith’s Mahagonny presented in 4k restoration. Introduced by Rani Singh. In collaboration with the Whitney Museum of Art , The Mint Museum, and the Independent Picture House.
Harry Smith (1923-1991) worked obsessively on MAHAGONNY for over ten years, shooting it from1970-72 and editing it from 1972-1980. Based on the Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht opera Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, the film is an epic, four-screen projection which the filmmaker considered to be his magnum opus and described as a mathematical analysis of Marcel Duchamp’s Large Glass. MAHAGONNY is an allegory of contemporary life; it explores the needs and desires of man amid the rituals of daily life in New York City. Smith’s New York, like Mahagonny, is a place where everything is permitted and the only sin is not having enough money. Much of the film takes place within the Chelsea Hotel and contains invaluable portraits of important avant-garde figures such as Allen Ginsberg, Patti Smith and Jonas Mekas. These appearances are intercut with installation pieces from Robert Maplethorpe’s studio, New York City landmarks of the era, and Smith’s unique, visionary animation.harrysmitharchives.com
