Exhibition is a temporary, independent, not-for-profit art initiative located in a vacant
storefront at 211 Elizabeth Street in New York.
Exhibition offers an experimental and contradictory artistic and curatorial approach. Only
a continuous single exhibition will be shown during this six month project. The artwork
exhibited will be produced by a chain of consecutive artist interventions in the space and/or
on the artwork. The work space assigned to the artist is ruled by a roll of dice and the artist’s
order of intervention is ruled by drawing names from a hat. The artist agrees to an ‘Initiation
Ritual’ in person and on-site that sets the conditions for participating in the project. These
include renouncing any ownership of the art work produced, establishing that the art work is
not for sale in any form, and allowing that the art work can be appropriated, transformed and
deleted by subsequent artists.
The exhibition context is therefore created by the intervening condition: a continuous
accumulating, massing, heaping, cleansing, subtracting, and constricting. An archive area is
designated in the space for documenting purposes.
Exhibition was initiated by Elena Bajo, Eric Anglès, Jakob Schillinger, Nathalie Anglès and
