There is no age limit -- or requirement -- to present at PechaKucha Night, and earlier this week 9-year-old "illustrillustrator" Leonardo Meza proved just that at the inaugural edition of PechaKucha Night in Savannah. That city's organizer Aaron Cohen had this to say on Leonardo's "Mythical Creature Drawings and Handmade Valentines" presentation: I don't know if it was his cuteness or his in-depth analysis of his own work, but this kid brought down the house. His keen observations and wonderment of how close the eye is to the brain and how two scorpions make a baby scorpion were hysterical. About four presenters thanked me afterwards for not having them follow his presentation.
Jonny Goldstein Fears Snakes
As we've seen before, even simple drawings can make for great slides, and so it's fun to see Jonny Goldstein tease his upcoming presentation for PechaKucha Night in Philadelphia Vol. 2 (June 13), which will cover his fear of snakes, and be presented using his original hand-drawn illustrations.
PechaKucha + The LegalArt Six
A special edition PechaKucha Night in Miami is set to feature the LegalArt Six artist residency, taking place at the Rubell Family Collection Contemporary Arts Foundation on March 25 (18:00-20:00). We're including the full press release for more details, as well as the list of participating -- and presenting -- artists. PECHA KUCHA NIGHT FEATURING THE LEGAL ART SIX FOR MIAMI’S FIRST LIVE/WORK RESIDENCY MIAMI (Mar. 12, 2010) Pecha Kucha, an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public, will feature the LegalArt Six Thursday, March 25th 6-8PM at The Rubell Collection. This event serves as a public introduction to the local visual and multimedia artists the have been selected to participate in Miami’s s first live/work artist residency program, scheduled to open in the Downtown Arts and Entertainment District this spring. With 20 Power Point slides shown for 20 seconds each, the Miami artists - Carlos Ascurra, Pachi Giustinian, Jiae Hwang, Alvaro Ilizarbe, Manny Prieres, and Jen Stark will have about seven minutes to talk about their work and plans to give back to the community. Ideas include creating a mentorship program with high school artists and working with the blind to create visual art. A list of the artists’ work and projects is below. The Live/Work Residency Program, launched by the nonprofit LegalArt, is funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge, a $40 million effort to bring South Florida together through the arts. Additional support is being provided from the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs. “The residency will act as an incubator for these talented artists which will take them to a new level in his or her career,” said Kathleen Carignan, LegalArt’s executive director. “I am excited to see the new collaborations and innovative ideas that emerge when these artists live and work together.” The highly competitive LegalArt Live/Work Residency is Miami’s first subsidized live/work, professional development, and community-building artists’ facility. Designed as an incubator, artists in residence live and work in private 900 square foot studios and have access to exhibition, lecture, legal counseling spaces and a comprehensive resource library. The Residency brings together some of Miami’s most promising artists, along with national and international artists and curators; allowing them to collaborate in ways only a residential model can offer. Visiting curators and scholars will engage both with resident artists—by mentoring, leading critiques and exploring exhibition opportunities beyond Miami—and the public through lectures, workshops and exhibitions. The Residency’s first participants and their projects are: Carlos Ascurra: His work explores the impact of sound and information in contemporary culture and engages in a dialogue with the viewer about the findings. Give-Back Project: Will create a publishing house called RUINS Publishing to create hand made publications with photocopy machines, silkscreen and sound equipment in order to create a forum for discussion and collaboration. Pachi Giustinian: This multimedia artist explores matters of color, light and sensations. Give-Back Project: To See Without Sight is a program for individuals who suffer from all levels of blindness. The program will introduce them to a new form of expression, to produce and create visual art. Jiae Hwang: Inspired by the ideas of string theory and parallel universes this interdisciplinary artist deals in a broad spectrum of media from traditional drawings to video, audio, and multimedia installations which seek to create new ways to engage with viewers. Give-Back Project: Graphic design, video art, and software training sessions for artists to provide project support for digital documentation, converting image files, import and export of visual media, and explanation of graphic and video software. Alvaro Ilizarbe: Creator of the Freegums clothing label Lizarbe focuses on madcap aesthetics, comfort, and individuality. Give-Back Project: Creating an opportunity for elementary school students to collaborate with mural artists. Manny Prieres: His work is the product of the clash between tradition, temperamental heritage, and an intense, idiosyncratic counterculture expressed with detailed drawings and sculpture. Give-Back Project: An artist lecture series will provide studio visits for art students in high school and college. The series will give students a glimpse of what they can expect when they graduate and begin their careers. Jen Stark: Interested in how math and science is intertwined in everything around us, Stark creates complex structures that reveal how remarkable common materials can become. About PechaKucha PechaKucha was conceived in Tokyo in February 2003 by architects Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein as an event where young designers could meet, network and show their work in public. Over time, it has evolved into a massive celebration of creativity, with events regularly being held in over 270 cities including Miami. Last year, more than 6,000 presentations were hosted at over 600 PechaKucha events. Drawing its name from the Japanese phrase for the sound of conversation ("chit chat"), the PechaKucha format is simple—20 images x 20 seconds—and designed to keep presentations concise and moving at a rapid pace.

About the Rubell Family Collection and Contemporary Arts Foundation The Rubell Family Collection (RFC) was started in New York in 1964 when Don and Mera Rubell were first married. Since 1993 it has been displayed in Miami at its current, 45,000 square-foot location inside a former Drug Enforcement Agency confiscated goods facility. RFC first opened to the public in 1994. In 1998 the non-profit Contemporary Arts Foundation (CAF) was created to expand the Collection’s public mission inside the paradigm of a contemporary art museum. Each year CAF presents thematic exhibitions drawn from the collection with accompanying catalogs. These shows often travel to museums around the country. CAF also maintains an internship program, partnership with Miami-Dade County Public schools, an ongoing lecture series and an extensive artwork loan program to facilitate exhibitions at museums around the world. Since opening in 1994, RFC has been recognized as the pioneer of what is often referred to as the “Miami model,” whereby private collectors create a new, independent form of public institution.
Danielle de Picciotto and Alexander Hacke
And capping off our look at presentations from Berlin, here is artist couple Danielle de Picciotto and Alexander Hacke with a presentation that also featured the debut of their new track, "Ballad of the Lonely Fish." Danielle de Picciotto and Alexander Hacke are an American-German artist couple living in Berlin and New York. Painter, illustrator, filmaker and musician Danielle presented some of her drawings and images of the couple's latest tours and performances at our cosy PKN Haiti in Berlin. This presentation also marked the debut of Alexander Hacke and Danielle de Picciotto's latest song called "Ballad Of The Lonely Fish." With Alexander being the lead guitarist of the legendary industrial rock & avant-garde band Einstürzende Neubauten, we were extremely honored to have such a "piece of music history" as guests in our humble home.
Ania Konieczna is an amateur ornithologist who has developed a passion for bird watching throughout her life. As a kid she grew up in a forest environment, and she then evolved into a bird-activist, attracting more and more people to her passion. In "Bird Watching," she explains the whole story through fantastic hand drawings -- she also produced the poster for Koszalin's PechaKucha Night Vol. 7. The presentation was recorded at PKN Koszalin Vol. 6, and is in Polish.
Eric Chan (aka Eepmon) is a Canadian designer now based in New York, and in this presentation, he shares the childhood creations he produced as a kid, and shows how they link up to and influenced the work he creates these days. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 91.
Art to Live By, Thoughts on Teaching, and Photos from San Juan
Presentations In 2010, Lori Jakubow launched her online store, Art To Live By. In the presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1) she shares her work, and we get a behind-the-scenes look at the techniques and materials she uses, as well as what inspires her. In her presentation (in Czech, from PKN Usti nad Labem), Eva Mráziková talks about drawings she's done, and also shares her philosophy on teaching. Posters We have a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today, covering PKN Orlando Vol. 7 (pictured above), PKN Kumamoto Vol. 4, PKN Cape Town Vol. 20, and PKN Kathmandu Vol. 3 and 6. Photos Here's a photo gallery [Flickr] for last month's PKN San Juan (in Argentina) Vol. 7, and please note that the city's Vol. 8 is already scheduled, to be held on November 3. Calendar Tonight (August 28) there are two PKNs on tap: PKN San Francisco Vol. 52 and PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 26. Tomorrow, you can look to the following three events: PKN New Haven Vol. 13, PKN Tampere Vol. 7, and PKN Providence Vol. 41.
The Art of Running
Most runners are powered by performance drinks and nutritional energy bars, but Joseph Tame is powered by laughter, smiles, and a smidgen of confusion. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from our very special PKN Tokyo Vol. 100), Joseph shows us the art he has created through running. Using Nike's GPS run-tracking technology he runs routes on the map shaped like animals, shoes (as a promotion for Nike) and most recently spelled out "20x20" as a 10-year birthday gift to PechaKucha -- what a unique and wonderful surprise it was! It all started about 5 years ago when Joseph was accepted to run in the Tokyo Marathon (due to high demand about 1 in 8 applicants are selected) and, due to his fascination with technology, decided to live-stream his experience so that he may share it with those who couldn't participate. Later, with Japan's public television network NHK, Joseph ran the words "Ishinomaki (石巻)" in the city most seriously affected by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. He spoke to people living there, brought some smiles to their faces, and promoted awareness for the still-troubled region. After several additions to his outfit, a PKN Tokyo Vol. 72 presentation, thousands of kilometers, a multitude of smiles, and many drawings later he has become a sort of ambassador at the crossroads of running and tech. This Sunday the 24th at 8:30am JST, he'll be streaming his run through the Tokyo Marathon once again; you can show your support and check out more of his running-art on his website.
PechaKucha Night Weimar #2
Densifying atmosphere: For the second time in "the shop" (der Laden) we met to celebrate the corageous and the creative individuals show their work, passions, observations.This time slightly more of us (around 50) and a little more presentations (8), which required introducing another part of PechaKucha culture - the beer brake. Take a look how well it worked out! After the introduction by the host, we watched a tremendously beautiful presentation from Andre' Wendler about the "Stalker" movie. Andre expanded the PechaKucha format by animating his comments on the slides supplied with natural sounds. After Andre', Josef Janac' shared his story on how he became involved with PechaKucha, and what stands behind the delicious poster for our PKN#2 that he designed. Then it came time for a true photographer: Ana Cayela Munoz who deliverd an insightful reportage from one day in Weimar through photos taken directly from her heart, with a camera fixed to her chest 24/7. Here she comes through the crowd: Ana's walk through Weimar left us warm for the first PechaKucha beer brake in Weimar. Chat, chat and we caught a presenter for the last one! Iman Hegazy decided to drop her drawings into a PowerPoint, which she did and started off as the last presenter of the evening. Great decision, Iman! But before the surprise from Iman and her sketching trip to Alexandria, we were also smashed by the delivery by Jakob Stolz who told us about his excursions into video and architectural productions. One of the nicest slides, the red: And before that, we were taken on two trips to Asia: by Jan Beckmann through his urban explorations in Beijing, China where he talked about the funny differences an European visitor may need to overcome to get to know the local people: and by Anikesh Ashwin who took as to India by the means of his fascinating architectural and urban projects. This was a purely PechaKucha situation: Anish claimed twice at the very beginning "It will be boring" "It is just my portfolio"! Somehow, with a little of the 20x20 magic, no one was bored, on the contrary, Anikesh received the wildest applause! Long live PechaKucha!
