upcoming events /

Saturday 26th January 2008 - Ian Whittlesea

occasionals will be presenting 3 projections by Ian Whittlesea. Each projection shows a series of names and is an attempt to list chronologically everyone an individual met in their lifetime. The names are projected as white text on a white wall in an illuminated space. Each name slowly appears and fades away to be replaced by the next. These are ongoing works, altered and added to over time as the artist acquires new biographical information about the subjects.

The works can be viewed from beginning to end, or at any time
between 2:59 and 8:00pm.

2:59 – 4:53pm > Everyone - Peggy Guggenheim
4:53 – 6:26pm > Everyone - Frank O'Hara
6:26 – 8:00pm > Everyone - Gertrude Stein

There will be drinks and a short, informal discussion during the final projection from 6:26 - 8:00pm.
