Photo Catalogue

TAG is a multi-stage project, which will be conducted twice (May - July and August - October 2014). In this first round of TAG, Brooklyn-based artist Thu Tran returns to Cleveland for the home field advantage and engages Queens-based artist Jason Eppink in the creation of two collaborative artworks that will evolve over four weeks. Both artists will create their individual artworks within the SPACES gallery during week one. After each of the next three weeks, the artists will switch spaces and work with what the other has created-but they aren't allowed to discuss their decisions with each other.

Like a game of tag, there is no real competition or winner, just a playful framework through which the artists' unscripted dialogue changes over time. The public is invited to observe the artists during the four-week working process. At the end of each week, SPACES will hold public events for audiences to have a public conversation with Tran and Eppink about their recent artistic decisions, but not discuss their plans for the next phase.
