DESCRIPTION

During the course of the FAX exhibition, four guest programmers will each curate a special public event at the SFAC Main Gallery. 

Colter Jacobsen will present the ongoing project Mysterious Object at Noon (Oh Distance Has A Way of Making Love Understandable).

Colter Jacobsen invites artists and poets/writers to engage with the phrase, "Mysterious Object at Noon." The phrase is the title of a documentary-style film by the Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul. It utilizes an unscripted method of storytelling through the exquisite corpse party game. For the duration of the show, an exquisite corpse will evolve both in image and text.

On Thursday, June 14th, there will be a gathering open to the public to participate in the exquisite corpse by faxing over distances with other artists and writers. The results will be displayed in the Gallery for the run of the exhibition.
