Here are some pieces Hallie Bateman created inspired from Projet En Vue interview. We featured her work along with interview portraits and cassete tape recordings at our MacArthur B Arthur exhibition last June.

Our first exhibition was held on June 2 and 3, 2012 at Macarthur B Arthur Gallery in Oakland. The show featured large prints from the interviews along with with a cassete tape with a section of the audio. The individual “listening stations” provided an intimate environment for visitors to interact with the photograph and story of the subjects. - - - Read and view more HERE.
An illustration by Hallie Bateman that goes goes perfectly along with some of why we created Projet En Vue “In this era of advanced technology we are constantly connected to a global network of people, yet we are losing our connection to our communities and to the people within them. We hope that this project inspires people to truly connect with those around them, share thoughts and experiences, and truly learn from one another again. ” - from Projet En Vue Mission Statement.
Here is a shot from our exhibition during set up at Macarthur B Arthur in June. We displayed 18” x 14” prints from Projet En Vue interviews along with cassette tapes playing short audio portraits from the project some drawn portraits by Hallie Bateman. We plan to have a show in each city we interview. This summer we worked on Projet En Vue ‘Paris’ so soon as we finish designing and printing our ‘Oakland’ book we will be working on getting our new content up.
Projet En Vue will be vending in front of Oakollective tomorrow for First Fridays (15th & Broadway). Hope to see you there!
