collaborative project for the upcoming Nuit Blanche Ottawa 2012
artist Robert Brazeau’s tableaux
” enter the most decadent era of the 20th century – the 1920′s.
new york, paris, chicago
the dandies, the independently wealthy , the artists of their age
a decade of aesthetics, social debauchery, excess “
” the style, the characters and the ambiance are to be re-created, not observed
experienced, not observed”
during NBO12, visual artist and photographer Robert Brazeau will, through his lens, capture a 21st century response to this magnificent era and environment
heARTbeatgal and illustrator/cartoonist/orator Otis P Gould III hope to add to the authenticity, as characters to be found in the speakeasy crowd
professional models and enthusiasts of the period Lola Lovestory, Derek Ruston and Marley Lewington will bring their interpretation of the style, glamour and attitude of the era
the experiment completes as Social’s customers and NBO12 participants are lured into the environment, encouraged to release their inhibitions, immerse themselves in the experience of the often excessive and artistic social culture of the 1920′s
hBg is making a call to the universe, and more specifically those with a fetish for the era, to come collaborate with us the evening of September 22, 2012 at Social restaurant
it’s gonna be fuuun!
