June Artists In Residence Dinner says
Please join us for dinner at Spread Art and hear from three artists in residence Allison Baker (Minneapolis), Adi Wiedersheim (New York), and Ramon Dallas Hofman (Prauge) about their process, practice and what they plan to be working on during their residencies.

Allison Baker b. 1988 Earned her MFA in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design, a BFA in Sculpture and BA in Gender Studies from Indiana University. Her work investigates hegemonic femininity as a site of transgression and resistance. Allison is contrary, contradictory, and almost always wrong. Currently, she is an Assistant Professor of Sculpture and Studio Art at Hamline University where she tries to impart some knowledge of finesse, persuasion, and manual labor.

Adi Wiedersheim is a creative technologist born in Spain and now based in New York City. She specialises in creating audiovisual experiences through the combination of art and technology. Her use of computer programming and electrical circuits transforms installation art into interactive pieces that respond to the user’s movement.
Her work explores human nature and the concepts of identity, memory, dreams and imagination.

She has recently graduated from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications programme at Tisch School of the Arts and is now based in NYC. She has showcased work at Makersfaire and Littlefield in NY and has been mentioned by VICE’s The Creators Project for her poetic performance piece, Selected Ramblings.

Ramon Dallas Hofman is a performing/video artist, currently in a creative process of his solo project “313 Pages” inspired by his randezvous with the city of Detroit back in 2010. Based on that and his personal life stories he later composed a story-plot including multiple subjects regarding identity, norms and general life orientation.
The story became a base for the body of the work including a dance piece as well as a derivation into different, more abstract forms.
He's eager to know what the effect of his own thoughts and desire is gonna be, exploring how the art work is linked to his own reality which he willingly experiments with.

Other no less important influences for his creation are television culture, stand-up comedy, urbanism, electronic music - mainly WAAIR Analog Airwaves Internet Radio, and last but not least young music microgenres like Vaporwave that features a nostalgic fascination with 1980s audio and video.
