We Believe Art is Every Breath We Take
At AAAF we honor great artists, both contemporary and historical, and we will continue to honor future generations of artists. An ongoing project, AAAF focuses on highlighting LGBTQ artists and other communities. Our mission is to discover, inspire, and showcase artists and their work in a wide range of styles and media. By doing so, we inspire artists and non-artists alike to embrace art and culture within their communities.
Promo New Video! Art performance by Stella Lillig founder of AAAF NYC (www.aaafnewyork.org)
I'm very excited to share this video. The original (footage) piece is about 20 min. This production was made when we didn't have social media and sophisticated devices. We had to use all those heavy and complicated equipment -It was worth it in the end.
I was behind the camera - The models had to memorize a script.
We had a spotlight reflecting blue light, the space was wonderful but It was hard to focus at times - This video was recorded in 2004 and It was a successful show. With today's technology.
(I can't wait to create a new show like this one very soon!)
