Genesis Project dates
August 1st - August 28th, 2009

Genesis Project is an artist’s residency for body-based artists who  
identify as working between disciplines and/or seek to integrate other  
disciplines into their performance practice through open-source  
collaboration and horizontal exchange of knowledge, as defined by the  
resident artists. Genesis Project facilitates an environment wherein  
creativity is the act of investigation rather than what is produced  
from it. This model yields a environment for investigation and the  
creation of unique body-based work. The residency is sponsored by  
Basekamp in collaboration with Culture Push, a New York-based non- 
profit art organization, in which diverse professionals meet through  
artist-led projects and cross-disciplinary symposia. The residency is  
directed by Arturo Vidich, co-director of Culture Push.

Genesis Project received 36 applications from New York, Philadelphia,  
several other US cities, and 8 countries abroad. The 5 aritsts come  
from diverse backgrounds, bringing their skills and curiosity to form  
a unique, dynamic group.  They will converge at Basekamp in  
Philadelphia from August 1st-28th, 2009.

For more information about the artists, and more details about Genesis  
Project, Philadelphia:

Basekamp is an artist-group and non-commercial space, which has  
researched and co-developed interdisciplinary, self-organized art  
projects with other individuals and groups in various authorship- 
blurring configurations for the past decade. We use our Philadelphia  
space, along with temporary camps in other locations, as a home base  
to invite domestic and international collaborative groups in a joint  
experiment to develop new models of relations within overlapping art  
communities. The goal is to continue proposing collaboration as a  
practical and theoretical stance, and to participate in its evolution.
