SOH CHO 1 - 3
SOH CHO 1 I NEED NEW MUSIC
SOH CHO INTRO we grew tired of listening to the same music and conversing about the same things with the same people. we strove to lead more productive lives by maximizing our free time and potential, but too many weekends were wasted before the work week reset. we decided to take action.
I NEED NEW MUSIC will address new york culture's ubiquitous desire to burst out of self-imposed isolation with a curated playlist that transcends the boundaries of time, genre, and personal taste. in a room full of familiar faces and some new, soh cho will guide you through drawing exercises designed to challenge you to be present, drop pre-conceived notions, overcome inhibitions, and rekindle your innate creativity.

SOH CHO 2 U SEE ME , I SEE U
how many layers are there to an identity? how many of those do you wish to conceal or reveal? who is The Self you wish to be perceived? what tangible pieces do you choose to adorn your body with to project to the world and which of these pieces, if not all, are an extension of your body– a window into your aesthetic, beliefs, and ambitions?
with chosen attendees as models, SOH CHO will lead you through figure drawing exercises focusing on the human form and curated ornamentation. all the while, we will observe how much emotion we can detect through body language as we perceive the manifestations of personal style.

SOH CHO 3 REMEMORY
thursday february 23 8:00 p
in a dream, we are immersed in our subconscious’ most terrorizing fears and gloriously breathtaking fantasies. while some undefinable dreams and hazy faces drift away with time, others remain engrained and linger on for years.
using (imagery)(sound)(conversation) as tools to provoke the limbo between conscious and subconscious states, R E M E M O R Y will (channel)(focus on)(materialize) your unique subconscious experiences by pushing you to (unearth)(dissect)(relive) your most memorable dreams– using them as a foundation to create (physical representations)(artworks)(manifestations) of your significant solitary realities.

people of all artistry levels welcome
"I was talking about time. It's so hard for me to believe in it. Some things go. Pass on. Some things just stay. I used to think it was my rememory. You know. Some things you forget. Other things you never do. But it's not. Places, places are still there. If a house burns down, it's gone, but the place—the picture of it—stays, and not just in my rememory, but out there, in the world. What I remember is a picture floating around out there outside my head. I mean, even if I don't think it, even if I die, the picture of what I did, or knew, or saw is still out there. Right in the place where it happened." BELOVED 1987
