Mark Menjivar / Super G Experiential Residency
Current Art & Social Practice 3rd year MFA student Mark Menjivar is doing a one-week residency at the Super G Experiential Residency Program in Greensboro, NC.
In conjunction with the Super G Experiential Residency Program, Mark Menjivar has been collaborating with flea market vendors to create a Luck Installation. All items in the installation relate to luck and have been sourced from the grocery store and various vendors at the Super G Flea Market. Some items included are: cinnamon, cats, dice, dream catchers, NASCAR memorabilia, shot glasses, UFOs, dolphins, candles, food items, fortune cookies and more.
This installation is an extension of the Luck Archive – an ongoing exploration into luck that Menjivar has been working on for over 2 years. Menjivar is inviting visitors to experience the installation and contribute to the archive.
On Saturday November 9th from 9AM-11AM there will be an open house with the artist at the Super G Flea Market located at 4927 W Market St. in Greensboro. All are welcomed!
The Super G: Experiential Residency Program is an intensive three-week residency that invites thinkers and practitioners to collectively develop projects that are directed towards the production of “experience.”
The Super G Mart is a 75,000 square foot international supermarket and public flea market. Residents are given a 144 square foot space within the flea market to use and transform in any way wish. This space can act as a central hub for exploring the Super G, an actual site for social engagement, a temporary resource for the public, or simply a place to sit and do nothing.
Resident groups invited to the program can range from professionals and amateurs in a vast variety of disciplines from musicians, architects, poets, yogi’s, carpenters, anthropologists, chefs, athletes, and more.
