An exhibition in collaboration with artist Robert daVies
Boston Globe, December 13 2007
Art Spotting is an interactive, two dimensional exhibition featuring the works of 40 local artists. Unhinging the usual curatorial patterns, the selection process for this event has one requirement: All work must fit within the limitations of a five inch by five inch frame. Our point: To eliminate, at first glance, the overall individual elements of each artist on hand thus asking the viewer to look a little closer. In fact, Art Spotting persuades the viewer to take on the role as this exhibition’s practitioner, and by doing so completing the visual venture first introduced by the various works involved. With this limited requirement, the exhibition makers are investigating how to involve the viewer more actively, to increase their visual parameters, and at the same time, restricting the literal field given towards the artists.
