PF 2012, front doors
Püss Füst is a festive marathon of feminine energy & lady phenomena. The festival brings together a wide range of local & international female identified artists’ work into a unique multimedia event. This year's show will open on November 9th at D:center at North Ave Market. Photos from Püss Füst 2010 at Open Space Gallery can be viewed here & PF 2008 at the Copycat can be viewed here.
The year of chaos / 2012’s PF Committee is comprised of Sarah Konigsburg, Margo Benson Malter, Jasmine Sarp, Maire Witt O'Neill and Molly Colleen O'Connell. The show will be curated by Maire Witt O’Neill and Molly Colleen O’Connell. The show is comprised of four categories: gallery works, performances, video reel, & live interactive booths. Participants are either invited to be in the show or curated in by an open call for proposals. Molly Colleen O'Connell is the director of the festival. D:center Baltimore is a broad cross-section of disciplines and individuals invested in improving and encouraging design-in all its iterations-in the Baltimore region. They will be hosting Püss Füst in their new North Ave location.
Püss Füst 2008 was a one night event held at the Copycat building, featuring 16 artists curated by Hayley Silverman, Molly Colleen O’Connell, and Emily Shinada. Püss Füst 2010 was a fully installed exhibition scaling the entire first floor of Open Space Gallery (running from the gallery to the now converted recording studio) curated by Sarah Milinski, Molly Colleen O’Connell, and Maire Witt O’Neill. The show boasted 52 artists & over 300 attendees. For Püss Füst 2012, we envision more artists, more events during the exhibition (screenings, workshops, etc), to continue to change what an art opening experience can be, and reach a larger audience.
