The first exhibition curated by UAG fellow, Michelle Hyun, in collaboration with New York artist Ethan Breckenridge, We’d love your company aimed to repurpose the gallery through an open programming invitation to the general public. Functioning as an essentially blank slate, the gallery was outfitted with basic architectural elements such as two raised platforms and movable scrims that visitors were invited to manipulate to reconfigure the environment. In addition, the public was invited to propose programmatic elements for presentation within the space during the run of the exhibition. In this way the exhibition sought to understand who the gallery’s publics are, while also investigating the concepts of hospitality and participation in light of an art gallery setting.
We’d love your company February 21st – May 10th 2013
