DESCRIPTION

Spirited Probabilities, a group exhibition curated by Mik Gaspay, invites and provokes artists to engage directly with the physical structure of Southern Exposure. The artists examine the possibilities of the space and provide chance outcomes through playful interventions.

Gaspay, a member of Southern Exposure’s Curatorial Council, is an interdisciplinary artist, curator, and designer. He approached the exhibition as an opportunity to talk with Bay Area artists about the flexibility of institutional structures and their physical architectures.

Using the building as a prompt, they query what the space is able to contain. In some cases, the artists have created works for spaces not normally used for exhibition. The concept of the threshold—of overstepping or navigating edges and boundaries—is a recurring theme in the exhibition, as several of the artists navigate the realm between physical and imaged space. Others bring attention to areas of the space that are typically unseen: either beneath notice or deliberately ignored.
