Open

Now that Landscapes of Quarantine is up and open for view—and will be until April 17—we're off for a quick vacation. The opening night was amazing; thanks to everyone who came out, to everyone who helped set up, and to everyone whose work appears in the show. Thanks, especially, to Glen Cummings of MTWTF for a fantastic exhibition design, and to Josh Hearn and César Cotta for sticking around all week for 3am vinyl installations, multiple coats of paint, and more.

I'm obviously biased, as the show's co-curator, but the works on display are awesome. They are:And, for the opening night party only, Suck/Blow, a pair of sidewalk pavilions constructed from Tyvek and pressurized air, by Jeffrey Inaba/C-LAB with former director of Storefront for Art and Architecture, Joseph Grima.

The show is already getting some great press, such as these articles and previews in Azure, Dwell, Artinfo.com, Fast Company, and SEED. Pruned, mammoth, dpr-barcelona, and Life Without Buildings have also all added interests of their own.

I've included a few photos here, meanwhile, but will be posting more about the show once the next few days of travel are done.

I should also briefly add that this is the first post I've ever written while flying in a Wifi-enabled airplane—in this case, over the American midwest—riding through invisible geographies of air, turbulence bobbling us side to side in an experiential, transparent plate tectonics of the sky.

So thanks again for coming out for the exhibition opening. Regular posts will resume soon.
