We finally got our space (near 13th and 2nd in NE Minneapolis) for the Future Presence art-a-whirl show (May 20-22), this was the first place we went for only to be told it was being converted into apartments. 1/2 of the people who run the second choice totally fucked up and others just didn't make the cut. We went back to the first place and dealt with the property owner directly, full on lesson in persistence; sometimes the only way to get things done is to go to the top. Besides the artist's work the bathroom of the place is going to be a work of art on it's own.
We decided on the winner of our open call, but we're going to wait another day or so before we announce any parts of the roster. As the weeks and days count down we'll be posting samples/statements/interviews with the people involved in the show, including a Nathaniel v Bryant interview and potentially something involving a psychic medium and a famous dead artist (I'm not going to go into more detail about that quite yet).
That's the news for right now; so as I've said in every other post so far, stay tuned for some actual content.
The show is approaching and the prep work is growing, but we're getting excited and so far the list of artists we have assembled is a good one. In the coming weeks we'll be posting information/statements/interviews from the artists taking part in the Future Presence art-a-whirl show. Continue to stay tuned, as the date gets closer the quality and amount of content will grow
