Weekend Pacifists opens on Saturday, August 22 through Saturday, September 19 @ Subliminal Projects. And here are the artists’ interpretations of their Weekend Pacifists entitlement:
Andy Jenkins: I work a regular schedule during the week and it’s anything but passive. On the weekend I become passive, as my personal work steers me around by the hands.
Michael Myers: To me, the ‘Weekend Pacifists’ is about the feeling of hope and renewal that happens weekend after weekend. The weekend pacifist is about comaraderie, spirituality, gratefulness, and the quest for being content in the now and for the week ahead.
Chris Pastras: I’m a pacifist who loves the weekend, so I guess I fit the bill pretty well.
Russ Pope: Weekend Pacifists? Pacified by the weekend on a weekly basis. Good Stuff. Living everyday like it’s a weekend, not saving the good times for two days a week.
Michael Sieben: Weekend Warriors is an album by Ted Nugent that was released in 1978. It’s also a term used to describe people who follow their passions on the weekend. The phrase ‘Weekend Pacifists’ describes an individual who is dedicated to their passion full time thus leaving the weekend open to relaxing or taking a break from the war. Hopefully that doesn’t sound too pretentious
