I was away on vacation for the past few weeks and wasn’t able to post. I came back to find no comments on my past posts however, which is making me a little concerned. Would be wonderful if you could participate by sharing and providing feedback on the show.
Also, please check out this fascinating article from the Christian Science Monitor: http://www.csmonitor.com/2009/0721/p17s01-algn.html
In the meantime, I’ll continue posting some more images from the show…
Nina Katchadourian worked with sports announcer, Mike Hogewood, to create custom introductions for each of the guests at the opening reception. Audio samplings from this work, titled "We Are Proud to Present," can be heard in the South Vestibule of the Weatherspoon ( between the two sets of glass double doors that exit out to the sculpture courtyard).

Steve Lambert's "I Will Talk With Anyone About Anything," as realized by Donovan McKnight and unknown woman. Photo: Martin Tucker.
Viewer's enjoy selections from Some People: Greensboro, a project initiated by Harrell Fletcher. Photo: Martin Tucker.
The Montagnard/Dega Association were invited to participate as special guests at the opening reception for this exhibition. This social networking event, "Weatherspoon, Dega. Dega, Weatherspoon." was organized by Darren O'Donnell. Photo: Martin Tucker.

Hello. I have been away and unable to post for a while. Here are a few pics from the opening on June 19. Above, is an image of me and Lee with the artists who came into Greensboro to create work for the show – from left to right: Nina Katchadourian, me, Darren O’Donnell, San Keller (it is his work, Who Falls Asleep First, that we are sitting on) and Lee Walton.
Below is a picture of San’s work in the gallery. Viewers are invited to lie down on the bed and try to go to sleep with San.
These are some pics of people performing some of Erwin Wurm’s One Minute Sculptures:
And, everyone loved drawing on the gallery walls for Tonico Auad Lemos’s work, Quatro Ventos !
Or posting their mantra’s on Sherri Lynn Wood’s Mantra Trailer wall:
