Fleeting to open (and close) in February

Fleeting

“Every artist wants his work to be permanent. But what is? The Aswan Dam covered some of the greatest art in the world. Venice is sinking. Great book and pictures were lost in the Florence floods. In the meantime we still enjoy butterflies.” –Romare Beardon

In Fleeting, curated by Christina McClelland, 14 artists based throughout the United States and abroad explore the idea of impermanence through a diverse array of media, artistic practices, and methods of working. The works displayed take the form of site-specific installation, performance, painting, photography, video, sculpture, and participatory work. Particularly examining impermanence in the context of nature and biological phenomena, as well as through non-traditional and non-archival materials, Fleeting addresses the temporary and ephemeral nature of art and its subjects.

I’ll be showing new work in this exhibition, made even more exciting by the fact that it’s a collaborative piece that has been in the works for quite a while and finally came to fruition across distance and disciplines. James Pepper Kelly and I will be showing a video piece, called March 30, 2012 – $656 million, which was shot in Chicago this winter. The exhibition opens February 1 at 7:00pm at Indi Go Gallery in Champaign, IL.

Check out more of Christina’s work on her website, and also on the Make Space blog, where she talks about her recent work, upcoming exhibition, and our coozie collab this summer!
