Buildup will bring together these two artists to respond to the space and each others work to create an installation that evolves over time culminating at the reception on October 30th, 2009. The artists will decide for themselves the exact parameters of their activities, working completely independent of one another.
This exhibition will begin on September 8th, 2009. Viewers will be able to watch the evolution of the space throughout the duration of the show. The exhibition will be open to the public for the Design District Second Saturday events of September 12th and October 10th, 2009. The official reception of Buildup will be held on October 30th, 2009 at the end of the show and the buildup of activities in the space.
