poster for Olek "New Work"

This event has ended.

"The Gallery is empty, and the gallery needs your clothes and materials!

I am not inviting you to come to the opening reception, I am inviting you to be part of my new performance/installation entitled "Just Bring Your Clothes".

Your donation is destroyed as the artwork is created. Static and metamorphosing, old and new, unique and fleeting, public and private, hidden and exposed, performer and creator, traditional and innovative, decay and renewal, are all interchangeable.

To enter the gallery on Oct 28th, 29th, 30th and November 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 9th, you must bring a donation of clothes, fabric, sheets etc., etc. or small objects to be utilized in the piece. You can silently choose the placement of your donated materials. I will cut them into small strips and recycle them through artistic transformation into new objects. If you wish to come back to purchase the new items, pick up the "receipt" stating that you are a certified donor.

Please, don't talk to the working artist.

Certified Donors will be able to purchase objects from the installation beginning November 2nd at a price of $99 each.

Non-Donors will be allowed access to the gallery beginning November 10th and will be able to purchase objects at a price of $199 each.

Installation concludes November 13th."
