SOLOWAY presents ‘FOLIO’ – an exhibition by the group 2-UP.
from the press release:
Over the past few years 2-UP has produced a series of poster publications. This will be the first group exhibition of the individual members’ work in a gallery space. The exhibition is structured in 2 parts: a free newspaper that dissembles into 7 double-sided posters, and corresponding works in the gallery.
Each participant has been given a 2-page spread of the newspaper publication. The only constraint beyond the format of the page is that each contribution exists in some relation to objects exhibited or events taking place at SOLOWAY. They may predict, document, or become materially incorporated into works in the gallery. In addition to the opening and gallery exhibition – there will be a closing event with readings and performances.
2-UP was formed in February 2010 as a cross-disciplinary group of artists working in visual arts, curating and writing. For each edition, 2-UP pairs 2 members to produce a double-sided poster, packaged in sets of 2. All of 2-UP’s activities are entirely funded by its members. 2-UP is currently participating in the Millennium Magazines exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. In addition, a survey of posters ‘This is 2-UP’, is on view at the Bowery poetry club, curated by SUE SCOTT.
Members of 2-UP participating in the exhibition are: COLLEEN ASPER, MATTHEA HARVEY, CHRISTIAN HAWKEY, CATHY PARK HONG, ZEREK KEMPF, BENJAMIN KRESS, NATHAN LEE, PAUL LEGAULT, JEN LIU, MORES McWREATH, ADAM SHECTER, JOE WINTER, and MONIKA ZARZECZNA.
