Opening - please come if you are able

Friday, February 4th, 7-10 PM

February 4th – 25th, 2011

In response to an invitation to exhibit at Space 1026, I proposed an exhibition in which a post utopian installation would serve as a distribution point for free publications by a host of other artists, designers, cartoonists and illustrators. After months of planning that project is about to become real.

It is my hope that this exhibition will transform the gallery space, sparking new relationships between creators and audience, and that this will lead to a range of interesting interdisciplinary connections within an experimental gift economy. This arrangement is obviously informed by my own aesthetic, but I think the conceptual connections between print, community, and utopian experiments are made stronger when put in conversation with architectural phenomena and notions of displacement.

This installation will feature works by the following contributors:

In her seminal book of essays, The Poethical Wager, Joan Retallack builds a complexly beautiful argument that in tumultuous times one should model the world in which they wish to live. In some small way this project aspires to be such a model.
