Season Zero

Feb. 1 – March 25, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, Feb. 1, 6-8 p.m.

This is Season Zero.

How well do you behave? IN THE FLAT FIELD. brings together printed matter and promotional materials — first encounters — of and into various fields. From art school gallery exhibition posters to radical literature, from fashion runway invitations to a philosopher’s notes. With an ethos of slow programming, these materials gathered together will be installed accumulatively throughout the season. Things will come and go and stay for different durations.

How can aesthetic, political, and intellectual urgency be conveyed and designed in the present moment? We look at —and look back at — these materials not as artifacts but as media-screens of first encounters in that very first flat field. How well do we behave towards materials? How well do materials behave back? What resonances and resistance are there for the here and now? And finally, what responsibilities does a gallery situated in an art and design school, such as Beeler Gallery, have in the present moment?

This is not an exhibition. Read More
