The Introducing Series is an initiative that creates occasions for emerging artists to be formally introduced by an advocate of their work and champion of their future career. Artists will come from a spectrum of disciplines, including visual artists to performance artists, writers to musicians, film-makers. The series’ constant is the principle of an introduced artist, the variable element is the appropriately diverse composition of each event.
To accompany the piece in the window space, a celebration of each artist and the formal introduction will take place in the form of a conversation between the champion and artist during an invitational evening. They are posted in its entirety every two weeks here on rogersmithlife.com

As makers and performers, artists occupy more space than just the stage with their presence. They constantly inhabit public, administrative, economic, cultural, internal, and political spaces; in this way the borders that contain what it means to “make art” are often unable to resist the blur of the artist working within them.
These 11 artists, who represent a broad range of young makers and experienced performers, will exhibit their presence in this space for a full 12-hour day; how they accomplish this, what bodies and non-bodies they utilize to do so, and the aesthetics of that presence are entirely up to them.
