PARKER JONES is pleased to announce Artist Curated Projects.   While this continues the gallery’s mission of showcasing the work of emerging artists\, for this exhibition the artist-as-curator is given consideration.

\n

The artists Eve Fowler and Lucas Michael began Artist Curated Projects in July\, 2008 \, and have realized twenty-four projects since then\, always with art ists they believed deserved closer inspection\, and always in non-trad itional exhibition spaces\, most often the home of a volunteer.  For t his project\, ACP will operate within the ‘white cube’ and existing i nfrastructure of a commercial gallery.

\n

The ubiquitous five-week exhibition duration has been divided into s ix sections.  The first\, which is curated by Fowler and Michael\, will be a two week exhibition of the work of recent graduate from the C alifornia College of the Arts\, Lee Maida.  The remaining three weeks have been given expanded gallery hours and will be a seamless successio n of four four-day solo shows\, each by an artist selected by a guest curator chosen by Fowler and Michael\, with a screening taking place a t the end.  The schedule is:

\n

Dec. 5 – 18:  Lee Maida\, curated by ACP
Dec. 19 – Jan. 3:  gallery closed< br /> Jan. 4 – 7:  Anne McCaddon\, curated by Alex Segade
Jan. 8 – 11 :  Laurie Nye\, curated by Anna Sew Hoy
Jan. 12 – 15:  William Downs\ , curated by A.L. Steiner
Jan. 16 – 19:  Madison Brookshire\, curated by Erika Vogt
Jan. 22:  screening\, organized by Er ika Vogt

\n

Reminder emails will go o ut prior to each show detailing the hours of the opening reception and which full day each respective artist will be present in the gallery to answer questions.

Madison Brookshire\, Nothing is Acc omplished

\n

3/9 … the s ound of the studio with the window open\, playing back on my tape deck wi th the window open\, in the studio. Layers of reality and recording.   3/10 Made another recording today\, during the day\, which I liked mu ch less than the one I made last night. Will try again tonight. Not sure what I’m after\, yet\, but I like the feeling of being on the track of so mething. …  3/11 Listening to last night’s recording. It is pleasi ng to be unable to immediately apprehend what is the noise of the apparat us itself and what is the recording.  3/15 The tape I made at dawn\, labeled “very soft\, nearly white”\, has a beautiful color to it… but th e sound of morning birds places it a little too well\, as the sounds of m y neighbors on the other side… started to define a space … The inseparabi lity of the color from the foreground of the recording—that\, I think\, m ay be what I like in these recordings. The birds\, however\, are few and far between. Maybe they are interesting incidents\, little breaks in the surface. …  3/17 Listening now to the tape I made last night. … Ve ry fine. Considered making another recording at dawn and decided against it. … The morning birds started singing before the half-hour of tape woul d have expired. I think this would have located the recording too much. T he birds signify\, whereas the dogs are just sound. It is important not t o have signifiers in these recordings\, maybe. It must be about perceptio n. The signifier\, in this sense\, is a cliché\; the unnamable sound is d irect perception (framed and mediated by the recording apparatus\, of cou rse\, but immediate in the sense that it is not filtered [diluted?] by la nguage).  3/28 All art—no—every recording has some element of the l yrical about it because there is a mind on the other end of the recording . The decision to record\, the moment that stretches and distorts time it self\, has an incisive quality to it. Even the blandest recordings—intent ionally bland\, intentionally gray—are colored by the romance of that p henomenological imprint. “I was here—and I wanted you to have this.”
