Art Peep Show
@ Modern Art
In January of 2018, Modern Art put out a call for artists interested in partaking in the inagural Art Peep Show. The project began by creating a small gallery space within our studio to be taken over by a new artist each day for one month. Thirty artists were assigned a day during the exhibition to contribute to the 6' x 8' life-size diorama, using the theme 'THE EXPERIMENT' to guide their contribution. Artists were given the freedom to use the space in whatever way they like: display artwork, put on a performance or use the space as their studio for the day. Unlike a traditional gallery, the only way to veiw the artwork/performance was through two small peep holes in a covered window. The nature of this unusual set-up turned anyone that strolled down the sidewalk into an audience member and created an interactive dynamic between the art and the "peeper".
