Exhibition, opens Sunday March 15, 3-8pm

For Immediate Release:


Opening reception: Sunday, March 15, 2009, 3 - 7

Exhibition is a temporary (six months) 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 months project. The artwork exhibited will be produced by a chain of subsequent artists interventions in the space and/or on the artwork. The work space assigned to an artist is ruled by the rolled of a dice and the artist's order of intervention is ruled by a name drawing from a hat. The artist agrees to an 'Initiation Ritual' in person and on-site that sets the conditions of participating in the project, which includes renouncing to any ownership of the art work produced, the art work is not for sale in any form, and that the art work can be appropriated, transformed and deleted by subsequent artists.

The exhibition context is created then by the intervening condition of the continually accumulating, massing, heaping, cleansing, subtraction, and constriction. An archive area is designated in the space for documenting purposes.
