CHUTE is an interdisciplinary exhibition in which performance and video based artists create works in direct response to Sarah Minor’s essay with the same title. Minor’s essay collages historical and informational texts, splitting each paragraph into two via a “chute” of centralized text. Minor defines chute as passageway, hiding place, descending, while reminding us of its role as status symbol and of our own relationship with desire and lack thereof. The artists selected for response approach these themes related to the meanings Minor defines in their own personal practice.
The exhibition includes three performances during the opening and closing events to take place on the event space of Blue Mark Studios. A selection of four videos and a live stream will be played on monitors and projectors, occupying Blue Mark’s gallery space. The lower level will also include the potential for display of performance residuals and the essay text. In the months leading up to the exhibition each artist will only be privy to the content of Minor’s essay, not the work of the others, manifesting as a simultaneous and collective dialogue within the exhibition space.
Doppler Projects hosts exhibitions that function as the platform for supporting topic-based programming such as artist interviews, essays, and group discussions. Doppler is excited to kick off 2017 with the group exhibition CHUTE and the topic of Art as Research.
