"Artists Union" wristband
for "Chain Letter" Group Show 2011.
"Artists Union" has emerged as a direct response
to the intention and nature of the group show "Chain Letter" at Shoshana Wayne Gallery 2011.
Curated by Doug Harvey and Christian Cummings, the concept of
the show was based on peer admiration, inclusion and connectivity. Invitations to participate in the show were distributed
in a chain letter fashion with number of the participants growing exponentially for 30 days. The result was a group show
that included over 1600 artists, which quickly filled the main gallery space and soon two overflow galleries near-by, demonstrating
the disparate ratio of artists to available gallery space.
We were aware that the exhibition will be a massive collaborative piece and in creating "Artists Union for Chain
Letter" our response was to participate by providing what was the most limited and making it limitless, Space to exhibit
Art. Through "Artists Union" we were able to showcase an additional 200 artists and rotate a show composed of
digital images of their work, while occupying only one cubic meter of space with our relief booth.
We still continue to admire our peer artists, include them in our Union and are
connected with them at present.
