Samara Contemporary is pleased to present Inside A Crystal Mind, the gallery's first-ever event as part of our curated event programming.
CRYSTAL LIGHT COLLECTIVE (CLC) is a group of five multimedia artists each representing their own energy, creating art and inspiring each other to succeed. CLC strives to spread a vibration of peace, while highlighting the possibilities of an abundant world.
“INSIDE A CRYSTAL MIND” came to be when Samara Contemporary Director/Curator Rafi Ghanaghounian reached out to Crystal Light Collective after seeing one of their live performances. He described his experience as “walking into an artist’s creative mind” giving birth to this special event.
The evening will begin with live installations featuring each CLC member in their own organic interactive display, followed by theatrical performances within their “Floating Crystal Garden.”
Overall, expect a night of original music, movement, film and fashion in an alluring gallery setting. The group is excited to share their creations in a new way including several debut collaborative projections throughout the night.
