About the event

Chloë Bass' artwork spans visual art, performance, and writing practices. Growing out of conceptualism and Fluxus, Bass' keen attention to social processes in public space, which largely go unnoticed, bring pointed visual meaning to these movements in the contemporary social context. For "The House of Dust by Alison Knowles," Bass has produced a line of domestic materials that she will use to interact with the exhibition and its unfolding series of discursive programs, sometimes in plain sight, and sometimes nearly imperceptibly. For Gather the house around the table, visitors will be invited to take their place in the family, using her objects to enact everyday poetry and share a meal.

Co-sponsored by Social Practice Queens, Queens College, CUNY.
