Making ROOM (2006)

Produced in a 30,000 square foot defunct hosiery manufacturing site, Making Room featured works by over 50 established and emerging artists. The festive weekend event also included a full schedule of music and performance art. This site-specific curatorial project investigated the particular possibilities of a massive wide-open space, where intersections and overlap within and between opned up new relational possibilities.

 Making Room for you, making room for me, making room for more, making room for bigger, stronger, sassier, sexier, making room for sculpture, installation, performance, new media, making room for music, video, drawing and painting, making room for Dorkbot, making room for eating and drinking beer and exchanging ideas, fan mail, phone numbers and manifestos…
