An Artist Talk with sTo Len
March 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Multidisciplinary artist sTo Len will be conducting a talk and discussion at Attic 506 while visiting Orange County as an artist-in-residence at LEVEL retreat. sTo will be discussing his practice, which resides at the intersections of art, environmentalism, and activism.
sTo is a printmaker, installation, sound and performance artist based in Queens, NY and operating at the intersections of art, environmentalism, and activism. The cross-disciplinary nature of Len’s work includes transforming public spaces – such as a river into an art studio, recycling waste into art materials, creating a community pirate radio station, and hosting water ritual performances at Superfund sites.
sTo has exhibited his artwork internationally, including exhibitions in NY, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Texas, Vietnam, Japan, Germany, Australia, Denmark, and Canada. sTo co-founded the alternative arts space Cinders Gallery in Brooklyn, NY which has exhibited hundreds of artists since its inception in 2004 and continues to curate exhibitions as a project-based Non-Profit Arts organization.
As a performance/sound artist, sTo has performed at diverse venues such as MOMA PS1, New Museum, St. Marks Church, Ramiken Crucible, Silent Barn, and Roulette in New York, as well as Atelier Kunst Spiel Raum and the English Theater in Berlin, Theater de Chameleon in Amsterdam, La Société de Curiosités in Paris, Manzi Gallery and Heritage Space in Vietnam.
sTo Len was the first artist in residence at AlexRenew Wastewater Treatment facility in Alexandria, VA and took part in the Field R/D program at FreshKills Park, a transformed landfill in Staten island, NY. He is a member of Works on Water, a group of artists and activists working with and about water in the face of climate change and environmental justice concerns.
