DESCRIPTION

1:1 is proud to present its final exhibition ALL THE BEST PEOPLE. 1:1 was conceived as a year-long collaborative art piece, opening a discursive space at the physical location of 121 Essex St. For this exhibition we have gathered together artists whose work embodies the spirit of 1:1, all committed to rupturing the banal: politically, socially, and aesthetically (which we recognize as inseparable). This exhibition and its sequence of performances and events culminates on February 14th with a Valentine’s day feast as well as BLOOD, the final installment of Whitney Vangrin’s performance trilogy BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS, signaling not the end of 1:1 but its transmutation into another form. As Genesis BREYER P. ORRIDGE would put it, 1:1 is dropping its body, before it is forced to ossify. Come celebrate this transformation and bask in the ongoing series of excitements and provocations 1:1 initiated in its first year of existence.
