DESCRIPTION

This group exhibition features New York-based artists who make work with, for, and about strangers. For each video, photograph, installation, and performance, artists cast out lines to remote neighbors who (wittingly or not) become active partners in creating the work. The resulting projects realign and sometimes undermine extant social relations and artistic intentions, engaging and confounding issues of authorship, exchange, generosity, and chance. Interactions both off site and within the gallery will continuously shape the exhibition’s content over the course of the show.
