> DESCRIPTION
PLAN B is an investigation of the emerging artist response to the current economic crisis. Originating from a quasi-anthropological premise, the project began as a survey circulated to dozens of artists about the impact of the recession on their work. As creative professionals who have historically adapted to adverse economic conditions, the artists provided truly insightful feedback.

The reconnaissance effort continued with a series of studio visits, conversations and recommendations that ultimately revealed the artists' propensity to harness the moment's regenerative potential by proposing new personal, social and economic realities through their work.

PLAN B’s findings will be unveiled at the opening reception. On display will be alternative commercial structures, documentations of unique gatherings and online exchanges, gardens, installations, and paintings. Workshops and “crafternoons” will take place throughout the run of the exhibition.

Collectively, the works in PLAN B allude to society's growing skepticism and re-evaluation of existing social and economic norms. They also encourage the viewer to embrace the potential for constructive change and viable support networks.
