Tampa, FL – REFRACTORY will take place Friday, October 15 at the former Tampa Armature Works building in Tampa Heights (1910 N Ola Ave). This special, one-night-only show runs from 8PM – 11PM. Admission to the show is a suggested donation of $5.
For one night only, an abandoned factory on the Hillsborough River will be transformed into a kaleidoscope of moving images and media art in an exhibition that engages the historic nature of the building and explores the interstitial space between. This beautiful industrial setting will be the backdrop for more than a dozen local and national new media and video artists. Add to this the installation of the largest Dream Machine ever constructed and you’ve got an amazing visual experience and artistic product that may be the most exciting art event of the Fall season.
Featured artists include Robert Chambers, Genesis P. Orridge, Richard Kern, Gerhardt Gruen, James Johnson, Clem Crowder, FaFa, Gean Moreno, Michael LeMieux, Kurt Piazza, Robb Fladry, Brian Taylor, Noelle Mason and Ellen Mueller.
