Fuse-Works: Some Assembly Required @ Open Source Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC (Feb 8th to Mar 5th) #opensource #diykits

If you are in Brooklyn this week, check out the opening raception for this curated show of artist “kits” at the Open Source Gallery. Thanks to artist Tom Burtonwood (included in show, see his video at bottom) for the tip.

On View: February 8th -March 5th

Opening Reception: February 8th, 7-9pm

The curatorial initiative Fuse Works, which exhibits and promotes artists multiples, presents a new group of editions with the emphasis on artists “kits”. Requiring participation rather than simple observation, most of the works in this show must be cut, pasted, cultivated, filled in, filled out or otherwise completed by the collector. Some are useful objects in a very literal sense, while some propose use as philosophical objects – to be employed as a part of one’s cognitive tool kit. Of course kits have art historical precedence, from Duchamp’s Box in a Valise to Fluxus boxes and Flux-kits. But the impulse to create work that is used and/or completed by the viewer speaks to the aspiration of contemporary art to embody forms of communication beyond the passively visual. At the same time, the creation of artworks that come to life as they are manipulated and altered by those other-than-the-artist undermines the tendencies toward rarification and commodity entrenched in today’s art.

Some Assembly Required includes: Tom Burtonwood, Celeste Fichter, Chuck Jones, Christina Kelly, Mariano Chavez, Piers Watson, Glen Einbinder, John Marriott, Peter Feigenbaum, Gary Kachadourian, Cadence Giersbach, Sara Bouchard and James Leonard.
