For a Limited Time Only explores the ephemeral nature of art, and by extension, humanity’s imprint and the artist’s mark, through works that will exist only for the extent of the exhibition. The projects deteriorate, or even disintegrate completely, during the course of the show. For a Limited Time Only concentrates on the urgency of the work, and encourages the artists, as well as audiences, to consider these projects philosophically, focusing primarily on the idea of the work as temporary experience rather than artistic mark, and memory rather than document.
Catalogue printed on wafer paper with edible inks will, with essay by Olga Stefan, and design by Shawn Stucky, will be distributed at the opening. In keeping with the concept of the exhibit, guests are requested to dispose of and/or consume the catalogue upon reading.
