Installment 6 | Making Space with Hive House, Adjunct Positions, Beauty in Transition, and The Drift



March 21, 2015

29 ° F

“Making Space”, an evening of connecting space with fellow projects: Hive House (Los Angeles), Adjunct Positions (Los Angeles), Beauty in Transition (Brooklyn), and The Drift (Pittsburgh)

Hive House is a spiritually-based community created by Kate Purdy and Stacy Elaine Dacheux. It’s run out of Kate’s house. Stacy and Kate host a monthly, outdoor yoga class, as well as weekly morning meditations, and other various events. They are committed to sharing and learning about alternative healing, art, writing, native cultures, and sustainable living.


Adjunct Positions is an artist-run project space devoted to open and supportive critical conceptual dialogue. An artist- centric test site, the gallery supports work that brings creative process into the exhibition space — transforming,performing, or otherwise inhabiting it. The non­commercial gallery is located in a residential garage in Highland Park.


Beauty in Transition, Jody Wood’s ongoing project, serves the homeless by providing a free hair wash, cut, color, and style to willing participants in a truck custom-outfitted into a fully-functional mobile beauty salon. From August-October 2014, Jody and a team of volunteers traveled to homeless shelters throughout New York City. Rather than increased invisibility behind the institutional doors of a shelter, this project considers increased visibility through reclaimed authorship to one’s self-image, while breaking long-standing and pervasive social barriers of touch that stigmatize someone who has become homeless.


The Drift is an artist-run platform co-directed by Steve Gurysh and Scott Andrew, for temporary art and other creative projects that explore bodies of water as a context for presentation and inquiry. Since 2012, they have worked with resident artists and collaborative groups to produce a range of projects and events on three converging rivers in Pittsburgh, PA. We host monthly programs that are free and open to the public. The project is currently supported by the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University.
