A STATEMENT REGARDING THE FUTURE OF TELIC
September 13, 2008 12:00 pm to September 27, 2008
After 5 years at 975 Chung King Road, TELIC Arts Exchange is moving to 972B Chung King Road, This move is part of a larger transformation of TELIC’s program into an underground school, a video gallery distributed around Chinatown, and a project space in Berlin.
We invite you to learn more about these changes on Saturday, September 13,our final reception at our current location. Information in the form of postcards, maps, and videos about these future initiatives will be on exhibit.
THE PUBLIC SCHOOL
The new 972B Chung King Road space, accessible through The Alley, will be primarily occupied by the Public School. With this expansion, all exhibitions and publications will be produced through or in association with the school. At 4pm on Saturday, there will be a meeting of the free monthly class, “The Public School,” which will discuss these changes. (http://thepublicschool.org)
The Distributed Gallery, opening October 3, begins as a network of four video monitors in locations in and around Chinatown’s West and Central Plazas. Monitors will be located at Fong’s, Via Cafe, Ooga Booga, and the Public School. Each month someone new will curate or create an exhibition, accompanied by a small publication. Upcoming shows include: DIY, Tom Leeser, Geoff Manaugh, Tom Moody, the Public School, Annie Shaw, James Merle Thomas, and Wendy Yao.
