ABOUT FACE! A military command to turn around and march in the opposite direction. Or, as in the case of this exhibition, a timely imperative for us to look at alternative ways an exhibition can be created, presented and received. What IS an exhibition? Are any or are all of the components of an exhibition, such as artist, space, location, theme, production, duration, curator, public, etcetera necessary? ABOUT FACE gave fifteen artists an opportunity to respond to the elements of a traditional exhibition with the premise that such elements can be altered, eliminated or turned around. ABOUT FACE, accordingly, exists in different physical locations and for varied time spans. Some of the artwork is in this empty storefront, some on the streets of the surrounding neighborhood, while some exist in the virtual space of the Internet or a smartphone.
