Hyperlink, a Denver-based artist collective, is interested in fostering meaningful connections between artists, curators, and institutions by way of organizing exhibition exchanges in partnering communities. The collective approached me to curate one such exchange. By exhibiting alongside artists in different communities, a dialogue is created between artists through geography and their work. Hyperlink's mission of "collapsing geography" influenced the utilization of the concept of duality to build connection and cohesion through the juxtaposition of binary, opposing, and complementary elements.

The Bubbler, Madison, WI, May 5 - 25, 2017
Philip J. Steele Gallery @ RMCAD, September 7 - October 5, 2017
A collaboration with Standard Projects, July 14 - August 6, 2017
The aim of this project is twofold: in an effort to highlight artist-led initiatives and the role of community in artist-run projects, Young Space invites artists to participate in an exhibition that will coincide with the completion of a remodel of the venue space at Standard Projects. Sizable emphasis is placed on the ideas of collaboration, connection and community. It also aims to emphasize the arts' ability to bring people together, via the Internet, by generating dialogue, working with our hands, and testing the boundaries of how art may be experienced -- especially focusing on artistic development away from the city center. A followup publication produced by Young Space is planned, further exploring these themes. More information at young-space.com/settling-the-ghost.
