Hosted by Guru Rugu and Jacqueline Falcone.
August 14, 2013, 8:00 p.m. – 1:59 a.m.
To finish up Guru Rugu’s summer residency at Cannonball, he will team up for one final event with local artist and hospitality-expert, Jacqueline Falcone, to facilitate a Bed-In & Breakfast! Hosted in Guru Rugu’s bed at the experimental meditation center of Los Angeles (currently based at Cannonball), and broadcast live on Guru Rugu’s YouTube channel, the 5-hour and 59-minute event will feature cozy, therapeutic performances, panel discussions, music, and more from a variety of local Miami artists.
Jacqueline Falcone is a retired baker as well as the founder and director of the nomadic exhibition space, The Jacqueline Falcone Bed & Breakfast, currently located in Miami, FL. With a commitment to social interaction in art as a means of community growth and expression, Jacqueline looks for ways to explore this in different forms through a subject which comes naturally to her—how does art and hospitality cross paths? Jacqueline’s main focus is to create a sense of “home” and hospitality where it is lacking.
Adam Overton is an experimental artist, and certified massage therapist (since 2007) living in Los Angeles, California, and a visiting resident at Cannonball through mid-August. His work involves performance, writing, experimental music, massage, and workshops, in formats that involve audience participation in order to facilitate odd and intimate artist‐led experiences. Overton works closely with Guru Rugu as co‐director of the experimental meditation center of Los Angeles and as a ghostwriter for Guru Rugu’s Experimental Meditation Hour on KCHUNG Radio.
The experimental meditation center of Los Angeles has no center, and is based in Miami throughout this summer. Adam Overton and Guru Rugu take the role of artist-as-facilitator, offering small group meditation sessions, each of them of different nature. These sessions are not the traditional “therapeutic” meditations, but rather repurposed spiritual, religious, and physical forms of playful yet profound meditation, offering a safe environment for “something else” to happen. Experimental meditation sessions will be held at non-traditional locations throughout the City, and will be free and open to the public.
