Exhibition Note

Paper, Painter’s tape, sheetrock.  24” x 36”. 2009.

 

A 2 foot by 3 foot rectangle is cut from the wall of the gallery.  Upon the substructure of the wall is taped a letter addressed not to the exhibition audience, but to the worker who will find the note during some future renovation.  This piece is a meditation on divisions within labor, the production of exhibition and art spaces and the idea of cultural capital.  It also acts as a eulogy to the artist Christopher D’Archangelo who committed suicide just one block from the gallery space.
