DESCRIPTION

"Schrödinger's Cats"

New works by Andrew Chapman, Aaron Finnis, Dana Hemenway, Christopher Fülleman, and Ginger Wolfe-Suarez & Primitivo Wolfe-Suarez.

"Schrödinger's Cats" is a two-part exhibition organized by Aaron Harbour and Jackie Im. Artists have been invited to contribute a work not entirely present in a final, physical manifestation; instead, something hovering in an intermediary state waiting to be substantiated. 

Schrödinger’s Cat: a cat that might be alive or dead, depending on an earlier random event. Erwin Schrödinger described how one could, in principle, transpose the superposition of an atom to large-scale systems. He proposed a scenario with a cat in a sealed box, wherein the cat's life or death depended on the state of a subatomic particle. According to Schrödinger, the Copenhagen interpretation implies that the cat remains both alive and dead (to the universe outside the box) until the box is opened.

The show will be repeated at the Popular Workshop (SF) in June of this year. Works will change in scale, content, and arrangement.

Aaron Harbour and Jackie Im live and work in Oakland, CA. This is the first exhibition they have organized at the gallery.
