Fieldfaring in #exstrange exhibition


We have a new work included in the global exhibition #exstrange, which is being exhibited over the next several months on eBay. You can visit the exhibition’ website for more information, or can go directly to our auction (this is only up for a week, however). After the auction closes, we will put up a screenshot for posterity on this site.

Its worth noting that for this particular exhibition, being curated into the initial show is just the beginning, and it is also possible for literally anyone to join in. This show is the brainchild of curators Rebekah Modrak and Marialaura Ghidini, and it is currently only in its first week.

If you are an eBay shopper- its a great chance to buy some conceptual work from a wide ranging group of artists.

Chess Variants hosted by Ted Purves- Tonight at Kadist SF

October 24, 2012

In 1944 André Breton criticized chess and chess playing artists saying that “what must be changed is the game itself, not the pieces.” At Kadist SF we’ll devote an evening to considering a range of artist mutations of the rules or structure of the game of chess, rather than the formal components of the board and pieces.
