FringeArts Philadelphia Presents Krie Alden
.

.
FringeArts Philadelphia is proud to present New York based multi-disciplinary artist, Krie Alden in her exhibit Untitled: What You See or What Do You See. This interactive exhibit focuses on the relationship between art and the viewer's perspective, specifically challenging the traditional experience between viewer and artist. VIP Opening Friday September 5, 2014 from 6–9pm, RSVP required. Official opening Saturday September 6 at 6pm, no RSVP required at the Da Vinci Art Alliance, 704 Catherine Street, Philadelphia, and runs through the month of September. 
.
In the current, millennial culture of instant two-way dialogue, artist Krie Alden invites the viewer to tear down the walls of the traditional art experience and contribute to the process of titling and describing her artwork in realtime based on what each person sees, hears, and feels as they move through the space—the opposite of any museum or show where the viewer is a given a headset  and told what everything means and why. As viewers continue to build collaborative meaning throughout the exhibit, artist Krie Alden will repurpose the space accordingly and create new work. The art "experience" becomes shared, collaborative, and participatory. The work itself and the experience change as a result of the on going dialogue between art viewer and artist until an entirely new dialogue and body of work is manifested in various forms. The works on display will include differing styles and mediums of abstract art.
.
Krie Alden is an American-born visual artist, singer-songwriter, and poet. She voraciously explores new methods of creation, with an established artistic vocabulary which includes paintings, combines, found objects, video installations, photography and performance art. Her vast and prolific collection of work is both visual and auditory and often merges the unique elements of abstraction, calligraphy, punk, graffiti, and fine art. Her work has been seen alongside Jeff Koons, Miro, Ricky Powell, and ESPO.

FringeArts (formerly Philadelphia Live Arts Festival & Philly Fringe) exists to commission, develop and present a range of high-quality contemporary performing and visual arts. Every September the Fringe Festival features boundary-breaking work created by some of the most renowned contemporary artists from our region and around the world, and serves as a collective home for artists to bring their artistic visions to audiences without any curatorial barriers. The community is enriched as art takes over neighborhoods, animating the spaces of Philadelphia from traditional theaters to corner bars and vacant storefronts. In this instance, Untitled: What You See, or What Do You See, the traditional relationship between viewer and art, making the art itself a vehicle for an entirely new experience and work(s) of art, come be part of the journey.
