Produced by Tyler Blankenship, Modular Art Pods at Queen Ave will be the first independently-curated MAPs show. I’ll be bringing my electrical box pod, but I (Tony Youngblood) was not otherwise involved with the curation or production. What the heck are Modular Art Pods? Learn more here.

The show takes place Friday, November 11 through Saturday, November 12, 6pm to 10pm each night. Saturday’s event will coincide with the East Side Art Stumble.

Tyler told me about some of the amazing pods and performances going down, and I’m incredibly excited! You’ll get to wade through a mini ball pit, explore a world made out of clay, witness an artist performing in a dress made out of barbed-wire and chicken-wire, and so much more!

Queen Ave Announces Call for Artists for First Independently-Run Modular Art Pods!

Queen Ave

Queen Ave

Queen Ave, the East-Nashville experimental gallery and venue, just announced their own edition of Modular Art Pods, slated for November 11 and 12, 2016. This makes me happy. My hope for MAPs was always that other people would take the concept and run with it. That’s exactly what the Queen Ave organizers Tyler Blankenship and Tyler Walker are doing. It’s is why we licensed the idea under Creative Commons – Share Alike.

That being said, I should be explicit in stating that I am not involved in the production of Modular Art Pods @ Queen Ave, although I plan on submitting a pod idea for the show. If you have any questions, contact Tyler Blankenship at jtblankenship@me.com.

Applications are open now through August 25, 2016. Queen Ave will consider both new pods and pods built for previous editions of MAPs. This is a great opportunity to re-use the pod sitting in your basement. They will also consider performers who don’t necessarily want to build their own pod.

Find out all the details and apply here: MAPs @ Queen Ave Application.

Queen Ave’s address is 178 Queen Ave, Nashville, TN 37207.
