5 Cool Things We Saw at ARTELPHX Fall 2014 at The Clarendon
Matthew Mosher's interactive "What We Have Lost / What We Have Gained" was definitely a crowd favorite.
After the ARTELPHX Spring 2014 show this past May, we wondered how the fall show would measure up. But measure up it did. With more clearly scheduled performances and innovative, thought-provoking, and downright cool installations from over 20 artists spread throughout the exterior corridors of the Clarendon Hotel, ARTELPHX Fall 2014, the third edition of ARTELPHX, not only measured up to but may have even surpassed last May's show.
While all of the pieces shown were interesting, there were five installations and performances that set the bar higher than ever for the next ARTELPHX event.
JAMovement's "Vice" transformed the pool deck into the perfect stage for their duet.
Watching Julie Akerly and Jordan Daniels spin and maneuver around the Clarendon's pool was mesmerizing from wherever you stood, whether you were down on the pool deck with the dancers or looking down from a balcony. As the name suggests, the duet explored the struggle of dealing with vices, represented by a cigarette and bottle of liquor. The push and pull between the two created an engaging tension that captivated us so much we just couldn't look away.
