OPPOSITE DAY (2nd Edition)
Please join us for the release of the second edition of Opposite Day, a marking of annual time (a zine), with a participatory work What Time, which will result in microcosmic, organic time-marking.
Opposite Day is an annual recording of a particular art community's and adjacent perspectives on life during the current US governmental leadership. The second edition is a collection of writings collected throughout the course of the year to date, and the various subject matter may seem at once distant and close at hand. The first edition came out on December 18th, 2016, and the second edition will be released on December 18th, 2017.
Angela Conant invites participants to make rubbings of a handless clock, the numbers of which are etched in Vermont White marble. As each rubbing is completed, participants will add drawn-in clock's hands to indicate the hour and minute of completion. The resulting collection of rubbings/drawings will be incremental indicators of labor and collaboration.
Copies of the 1st edition of Opposite Day will be available.
In her recent work, Angela Conant repeats content through paint, video and stone. Her videos incorporate sculpture and paintings and have parodied the politics of gender and media. Her practice also encompasses curating and collaborating on artist-run projects.
