WTF RU SHOWING!?!
Curated by Kevin Rayhons at The February Collective
"This is a spontaneous-seeming show curated by Kevin Rayhons in the temporary gallery space he took over at Blue Star. WTF is February Collective’s swan song/free-for-all; while previous exhibitions featured photography, WTF mandated that participating artists (which could be anybody) remove a 12-by-12-inch Asian-inspired print by Rayhons from the wallspace (which they could take away with them, apparently, as a keepsake), and in its place hang something, anything, without taking up more than 12 square inches — reminiscent in differing ways of Gerda Steiner & Jörg Lenzlinger’s 2006 Artpace installation Found and Lost Grotto for Saint Antonio, and Nate Cassie’s For You art exchange, which was featured at Three Walls in 2008. The exchange work went up in the gallery during a “hanging party” on December 30, 2009. What went up must come down, and might be interesting to check out in the meanwhile."
