Photo Catalogue

"Detour is an exhibition of 5 artists' practices rerouted by an obstruction. SPACES has created a framework for play wherein 5 selected artists meet to discuss their practices and address areas of comfort and discomfort. By the end of the evening each artist will be assigned an obstacle by his/her peers. One artist may rely very heavily on a specific media, but the other 4 artists may agree that it would be good to step out of that comfort zone. Another artist may be asked to utilize a certain subject matter while another may be asked to work collaboratively rather than as a solo artist.

Each obstruction is assigned as a playful experiment and a tool for growth rather than a mean-spirited prank. These artists' experiments may succeed, and they may fail.

That is the nature of a detour. Sometimes a more scenic route is discovered off the beaten path, and sometimes you just get horribly lost. In the end, projects will be realized, but the artistic process will be brought to the forefront and privileged alongside the finished work."

Lauren Yeager

From"Through my work I investigate my day-to-day, immediate environments places of common, shared experience. I am concerned with the collective source, those ubiquitous environments and the mass-produced components within them that everyone may encounter on a daily basis; for example, parking lots, air vents, and electrical conduits, which... go to artist page
