Table Discussions are in yellow and Event/Performances are in green. Where it says Work Space, we will be in the gallery working on drawings, writing on the wall, and talking with whomever stops by.
This calendar represents the last month of our lives. We did not curate this list and the participants got involved through our requests on the blog, Twitter and Facebook, articles, and word of mouth. While we know some of the participants, we’ve never met many of them. We scheduled the events as they came in with our only criterion being that the proposals be relevant to our inquiry into our unease with participating in the market. This is not Performa, nor is it a classroom where we will be doing the educating. It’s a discussion based space responding to the ideas raised by the participants and hopefully a chronicle and debate on the walls of the space. Throughout this process we will also be making art to internalize and respond to the dialog through our own practices. We will use different methods to make the art accessible and to challenge the established practice of the fixed-price point model. To that end, we have tried to schedule some work time, but we will always be available while we work in the space.
