Exquisite Codes, Berlin, Germany and Art-teenth, Bridgeport, CT, 06604, USA
I am delighted to share that I am exhibiting at the inaugural “Art-teenth” show and live celebration of creative freedom on the Juneteenth holiday in Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA. As well as, the simultaneously running “Exquisite Codes” exhibition in Berlin, Germany. With big thanks to @thisisamyjackson for curating, @shimartnetwork for the opportunity and @hohenthal_und_bergen
In this show SHIM repurposes the exquisite corpse technique to break down barriers to entry in the art world and promote inclusivity. By leveraging the concept of the exquisite corpse to create a collaborative artwork, artists are showcased from all over the world without the need for shipping physical artwork. QR codes are displayed alongside, allowing viewers to scan them and be redirected to the physical work for sale via the online platform Artsy. All of this promotes inclusivity, keeps the cost of showing great artwork to a minimum and reduces our environmental footprint.
