"SHIFTwork" Andre Stitt and Fritz Welch

The LAB Gallery

This event has ended.

SHIFTwork is a collaborative installation/performance that will investigate the perceptions of the artist’s method of production as “work” and the artist as a cultural worker. The space becomes a public studio for the exploration of the artist as “common worker” and an artistic activity that exposes the performance of painting as labor and cultural practice.

From April 16th to 19th the public can view the artists on the job working/painting on a series of “live” in-situ works through the large windows of the corner street level gallery during their assigned shifts; see attached schedule. During rush hour (5:30 – 6:30pm) on April 16th, Stitt and Welch will have a live "akshun performance" within the space where they will dismantle, cut-up, and construct new works from the debris of the paintings they were just working on for distribution to the public, at no cost to them, before becoming marketable products available through curcioprojects. The residual installation and products/art will be on view until April 24th.
