Portable wall, stickers, typography, performance.
An on-foot gallery exhibition.
First performed for Vital 5′s August 2009 Arbitrary Art Grant in Art Dealing, an hour-long, outdoor performance where art dealers lined an imaginary storefront, peddling art and acting as a wall.
I chose to create not only a new exhibition of work, but also a new gallery with which to promote it: PROJECT GALLERY SPACE, a portable wall, in this instance displaying the most recent work by local artist Shaun Kardinal.
The exhibition was titled Equal ∧ Opposite and featured two new works: the first, a strip of paper on adhesive, titled Light; the second, Dark, toner on paper on adhesive; each 8¾ × 2¾ inches, edition of 100. The former ran for $5 and, naturally, included an edition of the latter, which was not for sale.
With the Light, Comes the Dark.
