Gallery Opening: "Night Paper" Art Exhibition
The Slipper Room announces Artist-in-Residence Matt Hill with a ground-breaking live art performance titled, "PAPER BURLESQUE" plus art gallery exhibition of the surreal project NIGHT PAPER.

The Slipper Room is proud to announce the opening of the Slipper Room Gallery and their first Artist-in-Residence, Matt Hill. There will be two major events, including a gallery exhibition of Matt Hill's project NIGHT PAPER from May 5th to June 2nd and a first-ever live art experiment PAPER BURLESQUE on May 19th, 2013.

Bringing a new kind of art to what has traditionally been a theater performance space, Arts Director Todd Beers is delighted to launch the Slipper Room Gallery. The purpose is to showcase local artists with extraordinary vision who also will bring to the Slipper Room an additional vision of collaborative art blending performance and visual arts.

First in the series will be Queens, NY artist Matt Hill [www.MattHillArt.com]. Matt has been making waves with his personal fine art project NIGHT PAPER which is a surreal combination of long-exposure night photography and cut paper fashion with nude models. He has recently spoken at the Grand Central Apple Store about his project and aims to continue this project focused on exploring perceptions of beauty, light and time-dilation.

There will be a gallery show with select prints of Matt's NIGHT PAPER project in the Slipper Room Gallery from May 5th to June 2, 2012. The opening reception is open to all on May 5th from 7-9:30pm and also features a performance from Brooklyn roots musician Mamie Minch.

Even more exiting will be the truly experimental live art experience on May 19th from 8-10 pm called, "PAPER BURLESQUE." A group of talented and creative dancers will don paper fashions created in collaboration with Matt Hill and perform mind-blowing surreal stage acts. This unique experience will also be photographed live by Matt Hill as part of his NIGHT PAPER series.
