Gift Shop: Project #5

We gave love a bad name
We made a screaming masterpiece
Joe Plummer came up from Portland
At some moments, everything was illuminated
And it was loud

The Gift Shop


The Gift Shop Project #5 of 6

This is the fifth in a series of projects initiated and developed by Seattle artist Matthew Offenbacher which have turned the abandoned Henry Art Gallery gift shop into an autonomous, artist-powered, alternative exhibition space. Goals include: involving a diverse and interesting group of artists; developing means and methods which acknowledge the contingent nature of this particular site; generating new understandings of what an exhibition can be; and enjoying the pleasure and energy generated by working together. This iteration of the gift shop may include a drumming residency and the spontaneous formation of new bands. gift.shop.project@gmail.com.
