Dates: July 19 - August 10
This Summer, several of our favorite artists will be spending an intense week in our gallery space. During this time, each artist will transform our interiors into spaces that will pique your senses and alter the gallery until it is almost unrecognizable.
The process of reconstruction will involve a five day installation, when the artist will essentially inhabit the space. Following completion of the installation, a 36 hour ‘reception’ [or Open House] will take place, whereby the viewer is encouraged to visit the space at atypical times for gallery-hopping. Upon completion of the open house [Monday, 12am], the next artist enters the space and reclaims and interpolates materials left over from the previous artists’ work.
In this sense, then, the process becomes autologous – a blood transfusion whereby the donor and recipient are the same person – suggesting new life being continually re-inserted into the room.
Here is the full schedule of events: [7-19]: Opening of Sarah Dougherty’s ‘The City of Mexico,’ noon - Sunday at midnight; [7-26]: Opening of C.L. Meisinger’s ‘The Default Project,’ noon - Sunday at midnight; [8-2]: Opening of Morrisa Maltz’s ‘Pretend Behavior,’ noon - Sunday at midnight; [8-9]: Opening of Meranda Walden’s ‘Mother Board,’ noon - Sunday at midnight.
