Here is a project for which I sent a drawing to Samson Projects in Boston. A kind invite arrived through David Curcio in Watertown, Sarah Kabot in Cleveland and Jordan Buschur currently in Interlochen.
The show opens July 16 at Samson Projects in Boston.
Chain Letter is a global group show wherein 10 artists have been invited to participate. Those 10 then invite 10 artists that they admire. Those 10 invite 10 more and so on. This cycle continues for 30 days. The result is an exponentially massive, artist-curated group show based entirely on admiration.
