Opening Friday, March 2nd, from 4PM - 6PM
On view through Saturday, March 24th
Through exchange, play, and arrangement, How to Dig a Hole Outside Itself creates scenarios to access unknown outcomes. This loosely chronological exhibition charts the collaboration between Jasper Goodrich (MFA, 2018) and Alden Burke (MA, 2018) as they learn about each other, creating a shareable practice. Marrying Goodrich’s iterative and unwieldy image making and Burke’s faculty for vulnerable and empathetic exchange, the two react against and within the interests of the other as a way to materialize the unimaginable.
At 4:15 pm, join us for a gallery tour and artist talk in which Burke and Goodrich walk through the process of creating the exhibition. Moving through the works, the two discuss their time together, including the role and nuances of collaboration, challenging title-as-barrier modalities (artist as maker, curator as editor), and the process of working together.
