ABOUT DENVER DOES DENVER

Illiterate returns with the second annual Denver Does Denver, an event of mass creative promiscuity in which bands DO bands and artists DO artists. Hosted at two adjoining venues, The Meadowlark and The Flobots.org Community Space, Denver Does Denver will be a swinging time of artistic intercourse with over 20 musical acts and 20 visual artists interpreting the material of their predecessors and contemporaries within the city.

What began as an auditory exchange, with Denver's musical acts covering the songs of other Denver musicians, this year expands into the visual realm. Illiterate asked Denver artists to join the cultural swap and take on the challenge of creating a work of art derived from the composition of another Denver artist. Their efforts will be on display as part of a silent auction taking place above the Meadowlark in a space transformed for a one night stand as a gallery.

 

Like any progressive form of exchange, boundaries must be constantly re-evaluated and expanded. In 2009, Illiterate asked how the many participating musicians would handle the challenge of covering the music of others. Would they honor their fellow performers, present and passed, with heartfelt renditions, or lampoon the competition with karaoke-like covers? What transpired was a sonic orgy with room for both sincerity and satire. This year, again Illiterate poses the question to both musicians and the visual newcomers to the party: "Just how far will you go?" All will be answered and on display Saturday, August 28, 2010 at Denver Does Denver, where original content and prudes will be left at the door.

  • Formalisms: Joel Swanson at Redline

    Comment from tbron

    Not only an excellent article but an amazing show as well. Joel Swanson's work is deceiving simple. It is blend of both the right and left brained. Its presentation is as pretty as it is pragmatic. I am sure that 200 people that attended his solo show were equally impressed. ...

    OMG I can't believe it... I was in charge of posting on that sign at Bridge when this happened! I left the lettering of the sign to the maintenance man and I didn't have a chance to check it until the next morning. Good grief! I hoped most of the people on Colorado Blvd. were half asleep when they d...
