Conceived as a “live arts magazine,” ANTENNA::SIGNALS is a new sort of variety show by the artists and writers of Antenna. Each “issue” of Antenna::Signals will feature a spread of 8 local artists, writers, performers, or scholars whose practices relate thematically. The live event will be accompanied by the release of a two-dimensional print version, with each magazine dropping on a Second Saturday of the Month, 9PM-11PM, 4 times/year.

The First Issue of Antenna::Signals launches on April 9th with the Antenna Gallery exhibition “I Am An Important Giant”— featuring artwork in miniature form. Toby Lou of the Weekly Revue will MC performances and presentations synced with the theme of miniature:

Pippin Frisbie-calder and Tulane microbiologist Dr. Tim McLean, speaking about their Studio in the Woods collaboration

Carlos Grasso, presenting his short film using 1920s plantation life dioramas at the Louisiana State Museum as part of a narrative with found dialogue and live performed soundtrack, as well as a performance of “Tiny Sounds” amplifying low level sounds (purring, pin dropping, sighs, leaky faucet, bugs, etc.)

Miro Hoffmann, New Orleans-based artist currently working on a tiny house

Richard McMahan, who creates miniature replicas of famous works from art history

Valerie Sassyfras, a one-woman-mega band

Nat & Veronica, of Skinhorse Theater, a one-act performance

Guy Guidry's Nola Bonsai, breaking down the process of creating bonsai trees

Tiny Circus Big Top, presenting stop-motion animation short films

And featuring beer by Second Line Brewing, a local microbrewery

Castillo Blanco Art Studios will also host a fundraiser for Chewbacchus’ 2nd annual Shoeboxus Parade. There will be a raffle and the Krewe of Chewbacchus will be accepting dues and donations to support the parade. Keeping with the theme of the evening, the Gallery at Castillo Blanco will feature a carefully curated selection of small scale works of art and miniatures.
