Exhibition is a temporary (six month), independent, not-for-profit art initiative located in a vacant storefront at 211 Elizabeth Street in New York.
Exhibition offers an experimental and contradictory artistic and curatorial approach. Only a continuous single exhibition will be shown during this six month project. The artwork exhibited will be produced by a chain of subsequent artist interventions in the space and/or on the artwork. The work space assigned to the artist is ruled by a roll of dice and the artist's order of intervention is ruled by drawing names from a hat. The artist agrees to an 'Initiation Ritual' in person and on-site that sets the conditions for participating in the project. These include renouncing any ownership of the art work produced, establishing that the art work is not for sale in any form, and allowing that the art work can be appropriated, transformed and deleted by subsequent artists.
The exhibition context is therefore created by the intervening condition: a continual accumulating, massing, heaping, cleansing, subtracting, and constricting. An archive area is designated in the space for documenting purposes.
