Harlequin Night by Knomad Colab
Nov 10, 2018 - Jan 31, 2019
Casting a layered array of colorful shadows inspired by the harlequin archetype, Harlequin Night will temporarily illuminate The STOREROOM, bringing to life a forgotten and underutilized space. Elements of sculpture in combination with traditional theater lighting techniques will activate the entirety of the space as a three-dimensional painting, offering a moment of both delight and reflection for passersby. Harlequin Night is best viewed between 5pm and 1am.
The vision of The STOREROOM is to work with artists and Denver property owners to activate empty storefronts in Denver. Artists with a passion for engaging with the public and across diverse audiences, for creating work that is visually stunning and innovative, and for adding insight and whimsy to the neighborhood are offered a space to install temporary art installations. "Giving artists a space to create and display new works, or existing works that need a temporary home, The STOREROOM allows artists to share their voice outside of the gallery and museum world," said Vine St. Pub owner Kevin J. Daly, adding, "especially in this current political and social climate, it was important for us to share space with the creative community and encourage other businesses to do the same."
