Will's first solo-exhibition in the US was comprised of painting, photography and installations with a common reflective value. The exhibition also marked Will's first with Problem Library, and served as a re-opening of the space at 1288 15th Ave.
For Art Market 2019 we exhibited paintings by Will Thomson and Catherine Ko Chen, a Resonance Mapping installation by Blake Conway, and materials about our current projects.
Before beginning renovations of our space at 1288 15th Ave, we invited Erin Miller to create a floral installation from foraged to picked flowers and plants. After Decay shone light on the ruinous cycles of life, while pointing towards a deep appreciation for embracing decay as the soil of a brighter future.
Launched in collaboration with The East Cut, we hosted the first showcase of Catherine Ko Chen’s studio and new large format paintings.
Through abstraction, process and repetition, Catherine's work explored emotions and the memory of emotions, and aimed to answer questions that arise from the complexity of introspection, and to shape felt incoherence into structures of coherence.
In a two part performance, Cali & Co Dance presented the latest in their PRACTICE:ADAPT series, which is a process of practiced choreography then adapted to new and unconventional spaces; expanding ideas of survival, creativity, embodiment and community by expressing their innate relationships and role in our everyday experiences.
Maja's photography examines the boundaries between incompatible worlds, capturing phenomena that exist between the raw and sophisticated, the real and surreal, and the deeply personal and public.
Meredith's work induces wonder, expressing intimacy and elusiveness in the same breath – it captures a natural beauty we know well but can't place with certainty, it is just out of reach.
