James Case-Leal's piece, as well as others in our 2011 Workspace Artist-in-Residence exhibition, our main exhibition Canceled, and our Featured Artist Anne Gilman's The Jolly Balance, will be on view through June 30, 2012.
Above is artist Anne Gilman working on the installation of her Featured Artist Project The Jolly Balance, with the help of intrepid workstudy volunteer Matt Colbourn.
will join us on May 9th to talk more in depth about her
project, which took as a starting point a series of drawings she
made on a handwritten physics journal from 1918.

The Jolly Balance, detail, by Anne Gilman
Canceled is an exhibition that I am very excited for, as it will present work and exhibitions that have been previously canceled or prohibited.
Looking at the publications these pieces exist in, the exhibition is going to show how publications exist as an alternative exhibition, how they highlight the politics of cancellation, how they can critique or agree with the forces that called for it to be cancelled.
By dedicating an exhibition to publications, Canceled highlights the importance of the book as a way to disseminate and document information in a longer-lasting medium than the exhibition itself would have been.
The Jolly Balance is also going to be a brilliant exhibition, one that will fill the walls with Anne Gilman's
series of paper scrolls using drawing, text, and printmaking on graph paper, that connects images, textures, and colors in one giant presentation.
