DESCRIPTION

Turning an exhibition inside out, Whisper Down the Lane is an experiment gathering thirty artists through a process based on the children’s game of telephone, also known as whisper down the lane. Gallery 400 Director Lorelei Stewart invited five initial artists (DeGuilio, Leggett, Meerdo, Smith, and Syjuco) to each exhibit work, as well as to ask another artist, who would exhibit and in turn ask another artist, and so on. The broad themes communicated to the first round of artists were subsequently shared artist-to-artist by phone or in person. Who picked who and why, as well as what connections may be drawn between works and artists, are to be revealed at the opening.
