The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred
BY DANA MCKNIGHT
@ VOL 17
ON SEP 15, 2016
"Number 1. Be an ornery artist. You're mad. You went to art school. You go to shows in basements and living rooms. You are the poster child of the scurvy-laced bohemia. Your parents can't pay your rent."
In The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, artist and founder of Dreamland Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY, Dana Mcknight, illustrates twenty steps to carving out a cutting-edge, artist-run space outside of the dominant, institutional realm. Mcknight cautions, "To be an institution is to own-- to place value on possession rather than action. To fixate on conservative contentment rather than Hope and Possibility. Artist-led spaces fizzle out all the time. Let us not leave behind the phoenix eggs to merely touch a tusk in the Elephant graveyard."

The project, sponsored by street ware brand Elvine, offers free short-term accommodations in Gothenburg to visiting creatives, and yes, that does include PKN presenters. We have heard rumors that a Stockholm version might be in the making...
Charting Sioux Falls Development, Creation Concepts of a Painter, and PKN Charleston Goes Outdoors
Presentations TJ Olson uses his presentation (from PKN Sioux Falls Vol. 1) to take us on a tour of the development of Sioux Falls, by way of Google Earth. This presentation (in Czech, from PKN Znojmo Vol. 1) by Paulina Ebringer covers various concepts used by the artist when preparing and painting portraits. Posters Today's additions to the Tumblr blog includes posters for PKN Charleston Vol. 15 (pictured above), PKN Las Palmas Vol. 8, and PKN Glasgow Vol. 11. That Charleston event was held last night, and we quickly started seeing photos all over Instagram of the outdoor PKN, with two examples pictured below (see larger versions here and here). Calendar Tonight (October 10) you can catch PKN Hawkes Bay Vol. 4 and PKN Auckland Vol. 31, while tomorrow takes the form of yet another big Thursday: PKN Salzburg Vol. 14, PKN Regensburg Vol. 10, PKN Augsburg Vol. 2, PKN Kosice Vol. 24, PKN Norrkoping Vol. 20, PKN Utrecht Vol. 5, PKN Omaha Vol. 16, and PKN Kyiv Vol. 9.
This edition of Presentation of the Day comes to you from the annals of PechaKucha yore (well, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 53) and features interpreter-by-trade Sarah Stark speaking of her life growing up foreign in Japan. Additionally, she goes into detail on how people-watching inspired her to take up photography.

5 reasons why Pecha Kucha is **THE** night out in Coventry this Friday...
Yes, it's Pecha Kucha night at the Tin Music & Arts centre from 7pm this Friday, here's 5 reasons why this night of merry amusement just might be for you... 1) If you like TED talks, stand up comedy or open mic nights - Pecha Kucha is sort of like all three rolled into one. At each night there's a massive mix of zany, opinionated, inspirational and downright oddball people talking (or perhaps shouting, dancing, miming or singing) through a series of 20 images. You don't have to worry about stifling any yawns, each person is only allowed 20 seconds per image... before you know it you've had six and a half minutes of eclectic entertainment... and after 3 or 4 you realise the £3 entry is definitely giving your two bob's worth. 2) TFI Friday and alcohol is served. The Tin offer loads of continental drinks and local brews including Coventry's very own Byatt's beer. 3) Fighting winter flu? You can watch Pecha Kucha from your sickbed - All the Pecha Kucha presentations are put online at www.pechakucha.org/cities/coventry. Seriously laugh-out-loud recommendations from the Pecha Kucha Coventry 'Christmas' edition are: How to Annoy Your Friends on Facebook at Christmas by Simon Fairbanks and Placing Children on Your Lap: the Art of Ventriloquism by Michael Mayhew. You can also follow antics via Twitter live on the night @PKN_coventry. 4) Try it and like it? You can go to a Pecha Kucha night ANYWHERE in the world. Originally starting in Tokyo (the tongue twisting "Pecha Kucha" title means "chit chat"), nights now take place in over 700 cities worldwide. So next time you're surfing the Air B&B waves to Dubai, Budapest, San Francisco or Paris you can also take in a Pecha Kucha night*. 5) If you get the itch after seeing (and possibly secretly mocking) others, you can have a go too. Anyone is welcome to sign up to 'do' a Pecha Kucha night on any subject, in any style, with any images and props you might care to use. Once you've completed this curious right-of-passage, you realise there's no return; it's addictive, it's fun and it's a serious preference to sitting in and worrying about your post-January diet. See you on Friday! *disclaimer - not all nights may be as good as Pecha Kucha Coventry. Please also note that you could be educated or inspired and that there's a serious risk of meeting people... PECHA KUCHA COVENTRY Friday 20th February 7pm-11pm 'Design your City' - a theme for Global Pecha Kucha Night @ The Tin Music & Arts (formerly Taylor John's House), Leicester Row, Coventry, West Midlands, CV14BN Presenters, event details, maps here.
Analog Creation in a Digital World
“What you use influences what you create. I say, take that into consideration, try putting down the macbook, pull out a notebook, and get your Hemingway on.” In Analog Creation in a Digital World from Pechakucha Night Salt Lake City Vol. 16, Tyson Call, who is a writer, photographer, and motorcycle rider, talks about his story. For Tyson, however, sitting down to write on a computer creates too many distractions. Receiving a typewriter as a gift opened up a whole new perspective on the creative process and created a connection to the inner workings of other great writers like Hemmingway, Steinbeck, and Hunter S. Thompson. In this presentation, Tyson, muses on analog creation in a digital world and asks, "What have you done with a piece of paper? Nothing!"
A Creative Journey
"Why, today, are children handed a piece of paper with Math, English and Science and nothing about who they are and why they’re unique?" In A Creative Journey from PechaKucha Night St Neots Vol. 6, Artist and creative Tracey Mowatt shares about the emotive and deeply personal community art project called Vir2oso. Mowatt has been been working on Vir2oso for a year since feeling great frustration from the UK's uncompromising education system which did not provide ample space for creativity and exploration of self.
