Jennie Ottinger: These Paintings Aren't Going to Paint Themselves Seated Table Tennis
Jennie Ottinger invites the public to work for free as "assistanteers," helping her to create paintings for her next solo show. Her current body of work, which pictures physically disabled tennis champions at Wimbledon, will come life when gallery visitors go head to head in a seated table tennis tournament. Victor's spoils are a hand-made trophy and a bowl of strawberries and cream!
Carlos Ramirez: Digital Dirt: Donkey Kong tournaments
Carlos Ramirez will continue an ongoing a Donkey Kong tournament as part of his project, Digital Dirt. In addition to making terra cotta tiles inspired by the pixellated forms of video games, visitors can step up to an original Donkey Kong arcade game and battle it out for first, second and third place, each of which will be awarded with a tile-as-trophy made by the artist.
Nathaniel Parsons: All Ideas are Built on a Linger: Walking and Carving
Nathaniel Parsons will also be present, leading visitors on walks as part of his ongoing project, All Ideas are Built on a Linger. On these walks he will carve and talk with you. The conversation will produce motifs that he will try to depict in the carving. The carving will become part of the exhibition, then will become the property of his walking guest at the end of the show.
Steven Barich, Zachary Royer Scholz, Charlene Tan, Ethan Worden and Wafaa Yasin will also be present, working on ongoing projects.
