What kind of discourse can rise from a group of artworks that is brought together, not by one curator’s interests and preferences, but by chance, play, and perhaps a little divine intervention? The artists who responded to the call for Written in the Stars were chosen based on how their astrological charts aligned with the exhibit’s opening date. After each artist freely selected a sample of their work, the pieces were installed according to astrological sign, transforming the gallery into a zodiac calendar. Kellie Lanham describes her experimental approach as a means “to ignite a different way of exhibiting, viewing, writing and thinking about contemporary art.” Please join us this Saturday to meet the artists, enjoy refreshments, and discuss the surprisingly rich and harmonious dialogues generated by these “chance” pairings.
