presented by GEORGIA, Denver
SPRING 2019: SKY LINES became a BY-MAIL + DIGITAL exhibition presented by GEORGIA, Denver.
SKY LINES is a BY-MAIL + ONLINE exhibition brought to life by participants who received and documented postcards delivered to them as physical mail. Participants documented the artwork they received and sent their photographs to Georgia Art Space through digital mail. On 5 April the exhibition went live: SKY LINES will live out a digital existence. As a collaborative project between Briget Heidmous, Sommer Browning and a community of participants from across the country the exhibitions presents ways in which physical objects may exist in the context of daily life.
GEORGIA is a pop-up art space located in the alley behind 952 Mariposa Street in Denver's La Alma neighborhood. GEORGIA aims to blur space and purpose, to bring artists, musicians, writers, fabricators & thinkers together, to bring them together in a garage, to bring them together in a garage for a short period of time. More about GEORGIA in One Good Eye and Westword.
GEORGIA is sisters with 1122 in Portland, Oregon.
The exhibition features minimalist photographs and drawings of the industrial infrastructure that makes lines between us and everything.
The imagery featured comes from Paris, Milly-la-Forêt (FR), Washington D.C (USA), the DMZ* and Songtan (SK).
* The DMZ is the demilitarized zone between North Korea and South Korea.
Their next exhibit, much like everything else from GEORGIA, is outside the box. It will feature photographs and sketches from Briget Heidmous. But that’s not all. A large part of this exhibition relies on audience participation. How does it work? To attend and participate send an email including your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org before March 22nd to sign up and they send you an image from Heidmous. You then photograph the image in a place of your choosing and send that picture to GEORGIA. This is a really creative way for people to include their own experiences and interactions with the art. It reframes the original piece in the perspective of an active viewer. SKYLINES will be showing April 5th -7th.
