Robbie Acklen, Malik Gaines, Alexandro Segade
Malik Gaines and Alexandro Segade, BOFFO Residency Fire Island artists in residence, together with collaborator Robbie Acklen, present Fire Signs, a multi-media performance inspired by their time on Fire Island. Taking Margaret French, Jared French and Paul Cadmus “Collaboration” 1940s photography book as a point of departure and iconographic reference, the artists crystallize their impressions after their first contact with the social, architectural and natural landscape of Fire Island and The Pines. Playing with their own Californian identities and the affinities suggested through astrology, Gaines, Segade and Acklen will explore creative group relationships through recreations of the photographs taken by the Frenches and Cadmus.

Fire Signs takes place on Saturday, August 16 at 616 Shore Walk, Fire Island Pines. The performance starts at 5:30PM and a reception for the artists will take place between 6 and 8PM. Light refreshments will be provided.
