Chain mail for bad communicators
at The Little Free Library
January 18 - May 15 2021
We are pleased to host this exhibition of a new zine and artwork by Fine Art seniors at the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design.
Developed from conversations about making art in the time of a pandemic, the students' work speaks to complicated shifts in communication in this difficult period. In their words:
The original proposal or idea for the zine was to create an art version of whisper down the lane or telephone. One artist began each of the two chains (each telephone chain starts from different ends of the book). The next artist would then make a piece responding to the art given to them with no context or explanation. We’ve all had very different kinds of communication and indirect contact in the year 2020 so it seemed relevant and nostalgic.
We’d like to thank Street Road Artists Space, Emily Artinian, and Henry Gepfer for helping us create this chain mail of art between bad communicators.
This exhibition is installed in the front foyer at our Little Free Library,
at 1016B Gap Newport Pike, Cochranville, PA 19330
It is viewable 24/7 through the front door, as our hours continue to fluctuate in the pandemic.
Email us to make an appointment to view inside, including to view the zine itself.
