Out of Body

Ruben Burgess Jr.

“Out of Body” at LEVEL Gallery “To have a whole life, one must have the possibility of publicly shaping and expressing private worlds, dreams, thoughts and desires, of constantly having access to a dialogue between the public and private worlds." - Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran Out of Body is a living project designed to challenge the collaborators as well as the audience to reach beyond their perceived inhibitions to allow the organic process of self discovery to take place. Curator Brandy Michele Adams has worked extensively with each artist to seamlessly blend an unlikely pairing of talents together for this special ongoing fall production. The beliefs and visions of each artist will be an event to be witnessed and experienced. Artist/Designer Seth Damm||Neon Zinn will bring the influence of his work to life while pairing with fashion illustrator SartorialNoLift||Ruben Burgess Jr. and up and coming creative director/stylist KJ Moody. The exhibition will consist of sculptural statements, installation, illustration, photographs, and and special guest Dana Harper, a finalist from NBC’s The Voice and dancer Herman Houston. Level Gallery is proud to present “Out of Body” as an opportunity to experience the ebbs and flows of artistry in raw form while our collaborators guide you through the connected flow of each line drawn, each manipulated piece of hand-dyed fabric, and the subject’s movement as it is styled and photographed. This project will serve as a public narrative bringing us all into the present moment where chance encounters become life changing, where wild reverie is found in everyday materials and where the future is happening right now. Join us as we transcend beyond polarity to be present as one.
