DESCRIPTION

Our Daily Rite will examine work by local and international artists who engage in daily art making or explore the concept of ritual and marking time. Like Eleanor Antin’s photographic installation which documents her daily weight loss over thirty six days in 1972, artists have long been performing and documenting daily rituals. With the advent of social media, the daily art project has taken hold. Artists now upload and share their daily art projects instantaneously and hold themselves accountable to their social networks – to the perceived expectation and promise of one more day. This ritualistic aspect of daily art projects, whether a drawing, painting, or photo a day, reveals that the practice is in and of itself as vital to both the artist and the viewer as the resulting imagery.

Artists include: Hillary Charnas (New York); Jamie Davis (Ohio); Matthew Feiner (Connecticut); Steve Giovinco (New York); Pia Linz (Germany); Beth Castle Lovell (Connecticut); Ken Lovell (Connecticut); Martyna Matusiak (Poland); Nyeema Morgan (New York); Karen Nangle (Connecticut); T. Willie Raney (Connecticut); and Rob Rocke (Connecticut).
