colab

these pics feel so old! i guess it was about nine days ago we installed the show at the chashama chelsea space. i'll be gallery-sitting this saturday, february 21st, from 3pm to 6pm if you want to check out the show. 266 w 37th street, between 7th & 8th avenues.

it's a group show. colab meets once a month, we help each other with our writing, and founder/leader sarah schmerler helps us with our writing. writing about our art.

for this show, we worked together in pairs, writing about each others' art. the writing is displayed alongside the work. there's a lot to see and experience, hope you enjoy it.

has been very gratifying to be a part of this process. other things going on, more images to come soon.

this show keeps changing, hope you can make it saturday.

this is my favorite record of the show. fabulous.
it's rare to see anyone truly "in process." could you imagine if documents existed like this for artists throughout history?
