Khala Ghali: Art Alley Night Market
Khala Ghali, the Hindu words for art alley, gathered a unique array of artists from a variety of disciplines including: theater, music, performance art, painting, mixed media, sculpture, multimedia and dance for a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it art happening on the 100 block of West Mifflin and 100 block of North Carroll on August 24, 2007 from 5 to 9pm. Khala Ghali was inspired by the night markets of Hong Kong and the art streets of India, and infused with D.I.Y. spirit of the craft wave that is sweeping the national art scene. The Khala Ghali BLINK recipients organized this event out of a deep desire to bring the diversity of Madison’s arts community together for an outdoor night market with a little fringe. The premiere Madison Khala Ghali took place at the Philosophers Grove (2004) by Jill Sebastian and Forum of Origin (1995) by Brower Hatcher at the top of State, Mifflin, and Carroll on Friday, August 24 from 5:00-9:00pm. The event featured nationally recognized multimedia artist Mark Nelson, Mercury Players Theater, and Kanopy Dance Company among others.
