Thank you to the artists and the visitors who made our closing event for “Show Your Work” on Sunday, Dec. 4th so thought-provoking! We explored the meaning of “work” as it relates to artistic practices, alongside presentations by Tirtzah Bassel, Alexander Si, and Patrick Castello. Stay tuned for what’s next!

Join us today at 88 Eldridge Street where “Four Artists Show Their Work” will begin at 1pm.

To mark the last day of our labor-focused exhibition, "Show Your Work," curators Sara Shaoul and Gabriela Vainsencher asked four artists they admire to share an artwork from their practice and answer the question "What kind of labor goes into the making of your art?" Four 10-minute long presentations by the artists, moderated by the curators, will be followed by a lively talk.

Artist Alexander Si will discuss ”sweet green,” his site-specific installation which featured handcrafted simulations of the decor and branding of the fast-casual salad chain Sweetgreen and which included “sg_cheers”, a 20-minute durational performance shedding light on the invisible labor and the monotonous nature and subsequent burnout prevalent in blue collar/service industry jobs.

As an extension of our current exhibition “Show Your Work,” which considers how art, labor, virtue and meaning intersect, 601Artspace presents “Four Artists Show Their Work,” which features four artists sharing the process of creating one artwork, followed by a discussion moderated by curators Sara Shaoul and Gabriela Vainsencher.

Patrick Costello will present his collaborative work “Moth Ball.” One part citizen science project, one part banquet dinner, and one part woodland happening, Moth Ball is a collaborative art and ecology project arising from and supporting long-term interpersonal (and interspecies) relationships.

Join us at 1pm this Sunday (tomorrow) at 88 Eldridge Street!

: T.J. Dedeaux-Norris, an artist included in our current exhibition “Show Your Work” curated by Sara Shaoul and Gabriela Vainsencher.

“T.J. Dedeaux-Norris's ‘Untitled (Say Her Name)’ is inextricable from the artist’s identity and centers around an act of undoing a societal wrong on a personal level. In this video-recorded performance, Dedeaux appears onscreen with their mouth tightly shut. It becomes quickly apparent that their lips are not just closed, they are glued together, and we are here to witness the artist prying them apart using just their facial muscles. It is a work that is painful to watch, a metaphorical embodiment of the kind of work women of color must do to regain their silenced voices and erased identities.” - Sara Shaoul and Gabriela Vainsencher, curators

You can watch “Untitled (Say Her Name)” in its entirety at our gallery located at 88 Eldridge Street. Visit us today, tomorrow, and Sunday, 1-6pm.

: Mierle Laderman Ukeles. You can view some of Ukeles’s work now through this Sunday, December 4th, in our exhibition “Show Your Work” at 88 Eldridge Street.

“Mierle Laderman Ukeles was the conceptual touchstone for us in developing this exhibition. She invented ‘maintenance art,’ a conceptual framework which activates the invisible supportive labor upon which modern life is built (in particular childcare and sanitation) as artmaking. As the artist in residence of the NYC Dept. of Sanitation, Laderman Ukeles famously shook hands with and personally thanked every single sanitation worker in the city. We are featuring three prints from her vast ‘One Year’s Worktime II’ (1984-2016) series, which presented a full year of Dept. of Sanitation work shifts as clock faces, rendering tangible and visible the repetitive necessity of maintenance to society at large.” - Sara Shaoul and Gabriela Vainsencher, Curators

Gallery hours: Thursday-Sunday, 1-6pm

Four Artists Show Their Work: An Art Conversation at 601Artspace

Artists Tirtzah Bassel, Patrick Costello, Gracelee Lawrence, and Alexander Si will answer the question: "What kind of labor goes into the making of your art?” It will also be the last day to see the exhibition “Show Your Work” curated by Sara Shaoul and Gabriela Vainsencher.

Gracelee Lawrence’s work deals with relationships between food, the body, and technology. It is born in the transfigurative space between physical and digital reality, exploring the ways in which bodies are both gendered and metaphorically fragmented in terms of capitalist-driven material desires, physical sustenance, and the digital spaces we inhabit.
www.graceleelawrence.com

Alexander Si is a multidisciplinary, project-based artist whose body of work documents and examines subjects in American popular culture that expose invisible labor, class and racial disparity, and the mental and behavioral repercussions of media and technology. Working at the intersection of sculpture, performance, video, and installation, Si uses hacking, staging, acting, and fabrication to lift these common scenarios out of its context and document their sociological consequences.

601Artspace would be delighted by your attendance. Looking forward to seeing you in the gallery at 1pm on Sunday, December 4th.

Four Artists Show Their Work: An Art Conversation at 601Artspace

Artists Tirtzah Bassel, Patrick Costello, Gracelee Lawrence, and Alexander Si will answer the question: "What kind of labor goes into the making of your art?” It will also be the last day to see the exhibition “Show Your Work.”

Tirtzah Bassel is a visual artist based in Brooklyn. Her figurative paintings and site-responsive installations draw attention to the presumed neutrality of ubiquitous spaces like airports and supermarkets, and ‘Canon in Drag’ – a series of paintings in the style of iconic artworks – subverts the authority of canonical images through gender flipping and altered narratives.
www.tirtzahbassel.com

Rooted in collaboration and performance, and often incorporating his background in printmaking, Patrick Costello’s work spans the disciplines of drawing, sculpture, gardening, and theater. Making projects informed by q***r and intersectional feminist practices, he collaborates with other artists, participants, and viewers to create spaces for collective transformation, wild imagining, and utopian possibility. These attempts at temporary world-building are ephemeral moments to remember how to feel human at this time in history, and how to practice what our humanity might ask of us.

"Show Your Work" is about the various kinds of labor and work that go into making art. Some artists' process is extremely labor-intensive, while others mine the poetic effects of doing less and less. Some artists do everything themselves, while others delegate.

In response to this exhibition, we asked four artists we admire who are not in the exhibition to share an artwork from their practice with us. More specifically, we asked: "What kind of labor goes into the making of this art?" The answers we got are as diverse as the artistic practices they represent. This event will consist of four 10-minute long presentations by the artists, moderated by the curators, followed by a lively talk.

: our feature of Sophie Calle wraps up with her series “The Sleepers” from 1979. You can view some of Calle’s photographs in our gallery at 88 Eldridge Street where they are featured in “Show Your Work” curated by Sara Shaoul and Gabriela Vainsencher.

“Calle invited others to sleep in her bed; she photographed them every hour, the only rule being that the bed remain constantly occupied. The experiment lasted eight days. The resulting grid-mural documents the sleep (calm or agitated) of the thirty or so people who lent themselves to her archival impulse.” - Yve-Alain Bois for Artforum (https://www.artforum.com/print/200004/character-study-sophie-calle-334)

: Sophie Calle, “The Blind”, 1986.

“For this work, the artist asked a number of people born without sight ‘what their image of beauty was’: Each answer was translated into a multipart presentation comprising an enlarged passport shot of the respondent, his or her statement typeset in italics and brown ink, and one or multiple photographs of what he or she had invoked, each of these items independently framed in mahogany-toned wood.” - Yve-Alain Bois for Artforum (https://www.artforum.com/print/200004/character-study-sophie-calle-334)

Learn more about Sophie Calle, who is featured in our current exhibition “Show Your Work”, with our daily .

“‘Suite vénitienne’ is a scrapbook of Calle’s quest for, and later obsessive surveillance of, a man she identifies as Henri B. during a thirteen-day stretch in the Italian city. We are spared none of the details —a list of all the hotels she called in order to find him; a photo of the door of the pensione where he stayed with his companion; snapshots of the streets he walked; maps charting his wanderings; a precise countdown of Calle’s frustrating schedule as a shadow; and interviews with ‘witnesses.’ […] Nothing is spared—that is, except the face of the man she pursues; he’s always viewed from the back, from a safe distance, since the whole enterprise was predicated on Henri B.’s ignorance of his being followed. [...] The quality of the images says it all: Calle’s not interested in photography per se, she’s an apprentice sleuth. More precisely, she’s only interested in the predatory and voyeuristic aspects of photography, in its sadistic nature.” - Yve-Alain Bois for Artforum (https://www.artforum.com/print/200004/character-study-sophie-calle-334)

“Show Your Work” includes two photographs from Calle’s oeuvre and will be on view at 88 Eldridge Street until December 4th. Gallery hours: Thursday-Sunday, 1-6pm.

Pictured here is “Take Care of Yourself”, a body of work that featured artist Sophie Calle created for the French Pavilion of the 2007 Venice Biennale by selecting 107 women ranging from actresses to sociologists to analyze a breakup letter that Calle received.

When explaining this work, the artist said:
“I received an email telling me it was over.
I didn’t know how to respond.
It was almost as if it hadn’t been meant for me.
It ended with the words, “Take care of yourself.”
And so I did.
I asked 107 women (including two made from wood and one with feathers),
chosen for their profession or skills, to interpret this letter.
To analyze it, comment on it, dance it, sing it.
Dissect it. Exhaust it. Understand it for me.
Answer for me.
It was a way of taking the time to break up.
A way of taking care of myself.”

Sophie Calle is our next featured artist in our daily series . Two of her works are on display in “Show Your Work” at 88 Eldridge Street.

“‘The Breasts’ and ‘The Plastic Surgery,’ underscore the point that existing as a woman whose physicality is constantly under scrutiny is a lifelong layer of emotional labor. She has been living life as an art practice for decades, so when she takes a photo and writes a text, it’s the accumulation of years of being herself and also being a person in the world.”
- Sara Shaoul and Gabriela Vainsencher

Visit our gallery Thursday-Sunday from 1-6pm to view Calle’s work in person.

Roman Signer was featured on this week’s series of . In the work pictured here, Signer releases a small rocket and then runs after it, as if racing it.

“A self-described ’emotional physicist’, Signer harnesses elemental forces and the mechanisms of man-made contraptions to expressive effect, making exhilarating deadpan incidents from the experimental and tacitly dramatizing our relationships with the basic stuff of existence. Carefully planned and executed, the artist’s works are nonetheless at the peril of chance.” - Hauser & Wirth

: Roman Signer, “Floating Table”, 1994.

“Signer’s materials tend to be the immediate utilitarian objects and Swiss landscapes that are a part of his lived experience, yet the manner in which he uses them is anything but banal. ‘Action Kurhaus Weissbad’ (1992) saw chairs catapulted out of a hotel’s windows; ‘Floating Table’ (1994) launched a table into the sea on four buckets; ‘Kayak’ (2000) featured the artist being towed down a road in a canoe.” - Hauser & Wirth

“For a piece entitled ‘Chairs’ Signer lets loose a small automatic lawn mower to prowl the main gallery’s parquet floor [at Hauser & Wirth, London]. A dozen chairs impede its progress, and the mower senses, skirts around, knocks into and conscientiously attempts to get at the narrow spaces between their legs. Elsewhere in the gallery, ordinarily inanimate objects are stirred by moving air: a whisky bottle, hung from the ceiling by string, is suspended above an electric fan whose upward current spins it in continual cockeyed motion.” - Hauser & Wirth

“In ‘Action in front of the Orangerie’, made for documenta 8 (1987), 350 stacks of paper were lined up in a field then exploded into the air to form a fleeting wall of paper some 15 meters high. Time, in all of Signer’s works, is a vital dimension, expending itself with striking speed or with provocative lugubrious slowness.” - Hauser & Wirth

“In Peter Liechti’s film ‘Signer's Suitcase – On the Way with the Artist’ quintessential trickster-artist Roman Signer slept in a tent and projected his amplified snores across the Icelandic tundra. There is a strange delight in recreating this ultimate gesture of non-work, originally performed for no one. The installation now requires even less work from the artist than the original version, as recorded snores emanate from an empty tent.” - Sara Shaoul and Gabriela Vainsencher, curators

This week the 2022-23 cohort from the Interdisciplinary Art and Theory Program (based out of Jack Shainman Gallery) walked through “Show Your Work” with co-curator and gallery director Sara Shaoul. It was wonderful to engage in discussion with them, and we were fortunate to have artist Arkadiy Ryabin on hand to discuss his work “Forces of Labor / Artist’s Scent.”

“This installation depicts various native and invasive animal species in New York. I intended this as a metaphor given the context of the rhetoric during the 2016 election regarding citizenship and immigration. The title, ‘Protected, Rejected, Unexpected’, alludes to this metaphor and speaks to the species’ status as welcome, or unwelcome, in the New York City landscape.” - Susan Hamburger

Hamburger’s work is featured in “Show Your Work” on view now through December 4th at 88 Eldridge Street. Visit us Thursday - Sunday, 1-6pm.
