Install/Deinstall
Thursday, July 18th, 6-9pm, 2019
601Artspace, 88 Eldridge St., NYC
Organized by Gabriela Vainsencher


Install/Deinstall is a 3-hour long group exhibition that condenses the three main events in the life cycle of every show: the installation of the work, opening night, and deinstallation of the exhibition. Artists included in the show will bring their self portraits with them to the opening and install them upon arrival. When they are ready to leave, they will deinstall and take their work with them.

While some of the works in the show will be straight-forward self portraits, many of the artists included in this exhibition do not work in a representational manner, and have been invited to create their own riff on the concept. Each artist brings two versions of themselves to the exhibition: one is their actual physical person, and the other is their visual echo, the self portrait, which like a persistent shadow insists on following the artist in and out of the gallery. The exhibition will spring into being, exist ephemerally as works are added and taken away, and then disappear, along with the last artist leaving the opening.

Artists in the exhibition:
