As a departure from conventional formats, Breakout Sessions invites artists to present work, performances, and ideas that comprise the constellation of influences informing their overall creative practice. Promoting an "open studio" format, the series provides rare access to artists' visual inspirations ranging from works of fellow artists to interdisciplinary elements of pop culture. NOTE: Altria is a big cigarette conglomerate and it totally bums me out to have to go see rad art in the context of place named for a giant corporation that makes cancer sticks. Altria gives money to the arts and programs to protect women from domestic violence, but it's always a bit of a mindfuck to know where the blood money's coming from.
