A happy accidental artist exchange

Atlas & Nik viewing Phoenix's film, "Little Men" with Nerburn's portrait of a potato titled "Postcard from Mom's Trip to North Dakota" and "Ball of Twine" on display nearby. (June 10, 2023)

Earlier this month Atlas O. Phoenix showed their films "Little Men", "Do I Qualify for Love" and "Ordinary." At the same time, Nik Nerburn's "Invoke Any Magic You Can" exhibition was still installed in the theater foyer and hall. The combination of the two bodies of work resulted in a lovely and intimate meeting of artistic minds.

Straight, white, cisgender, cross-disciplinary photographer/installation artist of rural Minnesota and trans, nonbinary man of color, filmmaker/writer from Minneapolis came together for an inadvertent, unplanned art exchange and conversation. Thank you both for enriching our lives and sharing yourselves so freely. It was an absolute pleasure to host these extraordinary people!
