COMFORT WOMEN Around Cleveland   12.02.11

You may have noticed some ambiguous looking billboards and kiosks around town stating "COMFORT WOMEN WANTED." These are part of R&D artist Chang-Jin Lee's project for SPACES.

There is a billboard on Detroit near W. 28th St.; one kiosk in Ohio CIty across from the West Side Market; and one kiosk in Playhouse Square. Use the map below to find the locations of the signs around town.

Cats-travaganza!   11.14.11

Have you ever found yourself overwhelmed by an almost fanatical sort of love for an animal? Cats, dogs, you name it.

Ben Kinsley and Jessica Langley's project, Make CATopia Real is a valentine to pet-love. CATopia focuses the efforts so many make on a daily basis to create comfortable-- even luxurious-- environments for the cats they live with, into one singular utopian world.

Join us Friday evening at SPACES for the opening of Make CATopia Real, alongside Chang-Jin Lee's Comfort Women Wanted and Christopher Auerbach-Brown's Boundaries.

And, to get you primed and ready, check out "So Your Cat Wants A Massage?"

The Bright Lights of Capitalism   07.21.11

Does Capitalism work for you? That's what Steve Lambert wants to know. And now, so do we.

Steve, our current SWAP artist, is making a sign. A big, flashy, old-school sign. You're gonna love it. And you're gonna see it very soon..but we could use your help. Just a little bit. It turns out that building a HUGE outdoor metal sign is rather costly. And Steve doesn't just want this thing to sit in the gallery. There's an interactive component-you get to vote-and you get to talk about how and why you voted (if you want). The sign will travel around town, and then it will travel around the country. The goals are many, and the participation is crucial-we would love to get as many people involved as possible. If you're interested in donating (1 dollar? a billion dollars?), then visit the project's kickstarter page and get excited: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/slambert/make-capitalism-work-for-me. Donating through kickstarter also gets you special access to Steve's backers-only-updates. I will also tell you that at certain levels, you get a really cool phone call. And art.

Or if you just want to know what's going on with the sign once it's made and traveling, then make sure you're connected to SPACES on our fb page, twitter, and e-blasts. You can also check out Steve-y info on his website: http://visitsteve.com/rn
