Creative Conversations: Active Ideas Art Talk @ General Assembly DC
Join Active Ideas Productions and General Assembly for a creative conversation on contemporary art. Meet with artist Annika Connor as she discusses AIP’s newest publication Point Suite Contemporary Art. The Point Suite Contemporary Art book highlights the work of 34 rising art stars and captures the conversation of the creative class in a new in-depth examination of what’s happening today in the emerging arts community. The evening’s discussion will start with a brief presentation, projecting some of the art featured in the book, and be followed by a fireside chat exploring what pressing issues are facing artists today. Topics to be addressed include: How can artists and entrepreneurs link together to engage the imagination both inside and out of the traditional art world? A DIY arts movement is sweeping across the art world, in what way can this be more effectively done? In a time when consumption of content has primarily moved to digital realm, why has a group of artists moved back to the traditional book format? We hope these talks will spark new ideas on how we can work together to engage the artistic imagination while shedding some light upon the issues surrounding art, publishing, and technology today. Signed copies of Point Suite will be available for the $35 at this event.

Dave Attell @ DC Improv
Dave built his following the old fashioned way: He earned it. Starting in New York, he eventually took to the road, sharing his ”very adult” comedy with audiences across the country. By the time Comedy Central signed him to do “Insomniac,” he was already one of the most popular touring stand-ups. Dave is still a presence on TV, with “Dave’s Old Porn,” “Comedy Underground” and appearances on the late night talk shows. And he continues to cement his status as one of the all-time great club comics.
