On October 8, the Denver Theatre District (DTD) launched Understudy, a first-of-its-kind arts and culture experimental space, located in the Colorado Convention Center (CCC) at 890 C 14th St. Operated, curated and funded by the DTD, Understudy is a 700-square-foot space for the community to explore and experience new artistic and cultural endeavors. Installations will rotate through the space on a monthly basis, on average. Artist installations and programming are currently scheduled through December. The programming starts with a project that runs from Sunday, October 8, through October 15, when DJ Cavem Moetavation and Thomas "Detour" Evans will collaborate on Sprout That Life: visual art, music and workshops at the nexus of hip-hop and the food-justice movement. From November 1 through November 30, Mathias Svalina will house his dream-delivery project in the space, using it as a place to write poems that will be delivered to subscribers by bike and snail mail. The band Rubedo, which will release the album Vaca on December 1, will host a pop-up record store in the space from December 1 to December 3. Also in December, artist Jonathan Saiz will set up an art vending machine where passersby can purchase small oil paintings for $20. The catch: People will not be charged on the spot; instead, they will be sent an invoice. The whole project is an exercise in trust.
