TAG: Round 2

Round 2

Jess Hirsch, Cassie Thornton
August 22 - October 17, 2014

Opening reception: Friday, August 22, 6 ? 9 pm
On view at SPACES: August 22 - October 17, 2014

The multi-stage project TAG returns for its second round of collaborations! This time, Jess Hirsch (Minneapolis, MN) and Cassie Thornton (Oakland, CA) will work in the adjacent studios constructed in SPACES to build off of one another's creations, separately, over the course of four weeks.

Both artists will create their individual artworks during week one. After each of the next three weeks, the artists will switch spaces and work with what the other has created--but they aren't allowed to discuss their decisions with each other. TAG tests the definition of collaboration and involves the audience through weekly "big reveal" events that punctuate the project's evolution.

Like a game of tag, there is no real competition or winner, just a playful yet demanding framework through which the artists' unscripted dialogue changes over time.

August 22, 6 - 9pm: Opening / Big Reveal #1
August 28, 6 - 8pm: Big Reveal #2 / A Psychologist and a Psychic Walk into a Gallery?
September 4, 6 - 8pm: Big Reveal #3 / Farewellcome
September 11, 6 - 8pm: Big Reveal #4 / Great Big Super Potluck

August 19 - 22, noon - 5pm
August 24 - 28 noon - 5pm
August 31 -September 4, noon - 5pm
September 7 -11, noon - 5pm
