Soft Lab

Soft Lab

Jan. 12 - Jan. 30, 2015
Closing Reception: Friday, January 30, 2015

Soft Lab was a research and exhibition space for softness. Over three weeks, the gallery space evolved as students and local artists engaged with softness in an unlimited range of possibilities. 

On view at Gallery 102 from January 12-30, Soft Lab was comprised of works engaging with softness in a wide range of media by student and local artists, and instruction works by artists from around the country. Soft Lab probed the role of the student-run gallery, reinventing the space as an active open studio to study the conceptual implications of softness, and encounter the material conditions of softness. The instruction pieces operated as works in themselves as well as served as catalysts for new work to be made or carried out within the gallery. Over the course of the exhibition, work accumulated and change, and performance events were announced on Facebook and gallery102.tumblr.com as they developed. There was a closing reception on Friday, January 30.
