New Show at LIBRARY GALLERY:
"Paper Speak," a group show featuring Jeremy Anderson, Ashley Buxbaum, Zach Collins, Yinfan Huang, AnaLaura Juarez, Sam Lorang, Lucky Nielson and Luisa Rivera opens next Tuesday at noon.
An exhibition to celebrate communication, collaboration, and illustration
Communication is social behavior. It is a necessary function of our species and vital to feeling connected and engaged with other people. This communication usually takes place vocally, visually -through text, or now, digitally through social media. We wondered what if communication and the same “connected” feeling could occur through illustrative collaboration? We played a game to find out.
Our goal was to push the boundaries of communication into a playful and artistic realm. We attempted this by playing a game with 8 artistic collaborators. The game began with a word: language. The first illustrator uses this prompt to create an image, the next illustrator is delivered this piece and has to make a second piece loosely based on the first piece. The third artist is then given the second illustration and without seeing the first must continue the thread. This produced a linear conversation, an evolution somewhat similar to the exquisite corpse game.
The show has two parts. One is the collaborative game which we call Paper Speak, described above. The second includes a collaborative book project between Yinfan Huang and Sam Lorang simply titled Conversation. Conversation visually explores a conversation between Yinfan and Sam through stream of consciousness sketchbook style drawings and notes. There are also individual collaborative collages between both Yinfan and Sam with collage artist Zach Collins.
