Black Tie International:
The Voyage


Where:  Gallery Aferro, 73 Market Street, Newark, NJ
 (a few blocks from the PATH station)

When:  Saturday, October 19th at 7:30PM

Admission is free

Presenting a 24-minute preview of Jan Sawka’s The Voyage, a critically acclaimed performance of projected artworks with the music of the Mickey Hart Band.  This preview will be followed by a Q&A with producer and director Hanna Maria Sawka, who is also the late artist’s daughter.  Gallery Aferro is currently hosting a large exhibition of Jan Sawka's paintings, prints and sculptures, titled "Reflections on Everyman:  The Work of Jan Sawka."  The screening will take place upstairs, in the
Media Room.

Currently in development, Jan Sawka’s The Voyage is a 90-minute performance by the late, internationally acclaimed artist Jan Sawka. This powerful visual journey, consisting of 1200 hand-made paintings symbolically represents an individual life as well as the greater story of humankind. Every image used in The Voyage is a fine-art piece by Jan Sawka, who created a visual narrative sequence.

A pilot of Jan Sawka’s The Voyage with music and video editing by Czeslaw Niemen was awarded a Gold Medal in Multimedia at the 2003 International Florence Biennial of Contemporary Art.  In 1989, Jan Sawka designed the historic, 10-story tall fine-art set for the 25th anniversary tour of the Grateful Dead, of which Mickey Hart was an original member. 

Additional information:

Jan Sawka was born in 1946 in Poland.  In 1977, he settled as a political exile in New York, where he continued to work as a painter, printmaker, set designer and sculptor.  As a set designer, he worked with Samuel Beckett and New York off-Broadway theaters and he created large set designs and projection installations for NASA, Steve Winwood and the Grateful Dead.  His work is in over 60 museums around the world, including Centre Pompidou, Paris; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, Toyama, Japan; Victoria and Albert Museum, London,; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Isreali Museum, Jerusalem; and National Museum, Krakow, Poland. 

Mickey Hart is one of the original members of the Grateful Dead.  Since the band’s dissolution following the death of Jerry Garcia, Mickey Hart went on to develop his independent career, which includes Grammy-winning recordings and important charitable and cultural work.  He has been collaborating with the Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter in creating the music of the Mickey Hart Band, which released Mysterium Tremendum in 2012 and Superorganism in 2013.  On October 11, 2011, Smithsonian Folkways Recordings released the ‘Mickey Hart Collection’ to preserve and further the Grateful Dead percussionist’s endeavor to cross borders and expand musical horizons.

Hanna Maria Sawka is a film, television and theater director.  She has directed professionally for the theater and she is a published author. Hanna has written and directed 5 short films, on 35mm and digital, which enjoyed success at 14 festivals around the world. “Beyond Iconic: Photographer Dennis Stock,” her critically-acclaimed portrait of Magnum photographer Dennis Stock, will premiere on Dutch Public Television in 2014 and is distributed to the educational market by Alexander Street Press.  Beside developing “The Voyage,” she is currently producing a documentary film about her late Father, Jan Sawka.
