Satellite Collective, a non-profit organization dedicated to the arts, introduces its new Telephone initiative today, April 20th. The exhibition receives its name from the children’s game it’s based off of, in which a message is passed in whispers from one person to another. In Satellite Collective’s spinoff of the game, the message is conveyed through various art forms. After viewing a work by one artist, the next had to translate the message using their own genre of art. For example, after viewing viewing a drawing, a poet would convert the drawing’s meaning into a poem. Among the participating artists for this project is Augury’s Kate Angus.
