Chain Letter II
Curated by Christian Cummings
& Doug Harvey
July 23- August 25, 2011
Shoshana Wayne Gallery is pleased to present a summer group show curated by Christian Cummings and Doug Harvey.
Chain Letter is a group exhibition based on admiration. Initially conceived by Christian Cummings and Doug Harvey in 2006, inclusion in the exhibition is based on invitation by someone who admires your work. Each artist invited then invites ten other artists whom they admire, and so on. This email invite will circulate for thirty days, at the end of which each artist will install their own work on the floor at Shoshana Wayne Gallery.
This exhibition is rooted in the ideals of inclusion, and highlights the social nature of the art world. It is the hope of the curators that the response will be vast and that the artists represented will be an exponential representation of all artists that are currently working and admired by their peers.
Chain Letter mimics communication today; and the way in which information is passed. The outcome will be a testament to the power of connectivity within society at present.
Other cities worldwide will be participating in the Chain Letter exhibition including New York City, London, Paris, Johannesburg, Philadelphia, Boston, Seoul.
