For this fourth iteration of the Institute of Cultural Inqui ry’s ambitious project 100/10 (100 days/10 visions)\, curator-artist Karen Frimkess Wolff and artist Paul W. Evans invite us to “Consider A Path (pass ing fragments\, as much as human understanding may grasp).”  Enriched by th e ICI’s extensive collection of books and ephemera for the blind and inflec ted by Frimkess Wolff’s experience teaching art and art history at the Los Angeles Braille Institute\, the pair presents a protean\, phantasmic landsc ape of sight\, touch\, and sound that traverses personal intention and publ ic participations\, knowing and acting\, thinking and willing.  How do we a pprehend and convey ourselves through worlds\, real and imagined?

\n

F rom a single sheet of iron-on eyes once destined for foster-child dolls\, E vans has multiplied the eye images\, lifting them onto structures that evok e seeing and seers\, scenarios of watchers and watching. Multiple calls to myriad visions—a dense tangle of potential sight lines—confound the classic white gallery space’s imperative of legible display. A laboratory space pr obes visitors’ sense of touch against the resonant backdrop of Frimkess Wol ff’s interactive bell lines. A reception and curator’s talk will be held on Sat.\, April 16\, 2011\, 4-6 p.m.

\n

Beginning January 31\, 2011 and running for 100 consecutive business days\, the ICI site and its archives w ill undergo a multitude of interpretations. ICI has invited ten researchers —artists\, writers\, and visual thinkers—to set into play ideas that blend contemporary visual practices with aspects of the ICI Earth Cabinet\, Ephem era Kabinett\, and a 2\,500+ volume library along with the nooks and cranni es of the eclectic\, historically layered ICI space. With just two weeks to conceive of their vision\, curators will work in a designated laboratory m odeled upon the transparent workspaces of 19th-century natural history muse ums. Each curator will conceptualize a new trajectory through ICI’s body\, transforming the ICI display by the end of their residency. 100/10 project participants to date have included ∆1: Alex Harvey with Anna Ayeroff\, ∆2: Antoinette LaFarge with Ruth Coppens as well as ∆3: Norway Nori.

Evans [w ww.pweny.com] has exhibited widely throughout the United States and in Engl and at such venues as Artists Space\, New York\, the Brooklyn Museum of Art \, and Gasworks\, London.  Re-placing found images in specific painted envi ronments\, his work explores the tension between originality and reproducti on\, the infinitely reproducible photocopy and the singular act of painting .

Since 1991\, the Institute of Cultural Inquiry (ICI ) has explored the role of visuality in imagining\, perpetrating and perpet uating the intangible and ever-changing phenomena known as “culture.” The I CI sponsors displays\, symposia\, workshops\, performances and provides num erous opportunities for both the artist fabricator and the curious spectato r of visual culture. The non-profit organization also maintains an active p ublishing program\, releasing the critically acclaimed Searching for Sebald : Photography After W. G. Sebald in 2007. 100/10 is the first project conce ptualized within the 2011-12 ICI study theme of Phantom Worlds.
