2015

PROMPT : 5 artists. 4 installments. 8 weeks. 
13FOREST Gallery
February 27 - April 24, 2015

Artists: Xiaowei Chen, Suzi Grossman, Vanessa Irzyk, Lindsey Kocur, Sarah Rushford

The artists in this evolving exhibition have been allotted wall sections in which they have been asked to map out a number of segments in any formation they like. On opening day of the exhibition, each artist will have added one work (or grouping of works) inside one of these segments, leaving the remaining empty. As the show progresses, about every two weeks, the artists will fill another segment with additional work. Over time their respective projects will be prompted by the exhibition segments and by each other's contributions to the site.

This exhibit considers how objects can perform and respond to each other within the framework of a gallery exhibition. Here the gallery walls will cease to be static receptacles of established work, and become a site for transformation and re-imagining as artists add new work over time. This process of making and un-making of meaning is typically hidden from the public within artists' studios. Prompt is a prolonged discourse that activates the gallery walls by both the artist and the public for a continued learning experience enriched by time.

Accordion Issue 2: What Can't You Say
February, 2015

Contributors: Ben Aron, Michelle Garcia, Cydney Gottlieb, Maggie Jensen, Henry Kunkel, CL Mannarino, Daisy Novoa Vásquez, Rosie Ranauro, Robert Rossoff, Sarah Rushford, Lenny Schnier, Kate Wildman

Produced by Maggie Jensen & Luke Mannarino

What Can’t You Say is a collection of work dealing with the complexities that arise from the creative practice of translating one’s own work or the work of another into a different form, location, or language.  Communication gaps are still vast despite our ever-evolving understanding of the barriers that separate each from the other in this world. The artists in this issue consider how reconfiguring the subject and selfhood can bridge such distances, however briefly. The translator should no longer be seen as a mediator of information, but rather as another kind of producer, one who calls for alternate spaces of encounter and new intersections of meaning and purposes.  In this new space, creative practice is often one of assemblage and of collaboration through the marrying of multiple means of expression, some personal, some appropriated.

 

2014

Broadside 
October 21 - November 14, 2014

An exhibition based on modern reinterpretations of the one-sheet broadside. This body of work finds its place between the ephemeral, commercialized object and something more lasting, tactile, and intimate or conceptual. The artists investigate a range of interests including those of aesthetics, politics, humor, cartoons, poetics, and social issues. By conflating message and medium, Broadside explores how outmoded means of communication continue to hold sway in the contemporary imagination.

Artists:

Elaine Bay, Tim Devin, Pat Falco, Raúl Gonzalez III, TJ Kelley III, Tim McCool, Robert Moeller, Maria Molteni, Rhonda Ratray, Sarah Rushford, Adria Sutter
