Live/work space: Dawn's installation
Things. Last night, 535 West 20th Street was filled with them, and they belonged to the artist Dawn Kasper. Featured in the 2012 Whitney Biennial, Dawn has most recently drawn attention to herself with her nomadic studio practice, in which she installs her cluttered workspace––complete with props, drawings, old records, and the rest of her belongings––in a gallery context.
But the studio visit-turned-performance piece, however, is not the only work being housed in the David Zwirner-owned space. Dawn also decked the walls with work she selected by Mark Golamco, Lucas Michael, Rachel Mason, Eve Fowler, Matthew Spiegelman, and a few other young artists. At the opening, she zipped about, cheerfully greeting guests and replenishing ice-filled buckets with Modelo cans to keep the crowd cool and happy. "The exhibition," she says, "is the result of the collisions that may occur in our ever-expanding universe. The people involved are the fuel." Have a look at our snaps below.
Showing now through July 26th, 2012. The closing party on Thursday July 26th will include Mirror Mirror, Making Friends, Rachel Mason & The Little Band of Sailors, Mark Golamco, Karen Adelman, Paul Waddell.
