In July 2017, Little Berlin is hosting an international group art exhibition based around the theme of interference. The concept of interference is explored within contexts of the physical, social, political, and medical spheres.

The gallery will be activated by a broad range of media: sound installation, video, performance, textile, sculpture, and data visualizations. Some of the works themselves engender the idea of interference, while others expose various forms of obstruction that already exist in the world.

There will also be a curated selection of “Staff Picks” from the Little Berlin Zine Library relating to “Reuptake’s” theme of interference and obstruction.

This exhibition is paid for circuitously by car insurance funds collected after the curator, Will Owen, was struck by a Kia Mini-van while he was riding his bicycle in January 2017. After his medical bills were paid, the driver’s insurance paid surprisingly well for being unable to work for a week. This unexpected surplus of funds is being paid directly as honorariums to the artists involved in this show-- as well as their transport, and shipping of works. The incident, though definitely an interference, created a positive result.

Artist-Run Art Fair

ULINE OFFICIAL SPRING/SUMMER 2017

July 21st-23rd, Baltimore, MD

ULINE OFFICIAL SPRING/SUMMER 2017

July 21st-23rd, 1714 N. Charles St. Baltimore, MD

 

Little Berlin is pleased to be participating for a third year in Baltimore’s Artist-Run Art Fair. The ARAF is one part of the citywide Artscape celebration organized by Baltimore’s Office of Promotion and the Arts. Artist-run galleries from across the country descend upon a parking garage at 1417 N. Charles St. to throw a DIY art fair from July 21st-23rd. Little Berlin has always tried to offer an experience beyond the typical art/viewer dichotomy present in most art fairs (even the ones in parking garages) and this year is no different.

The interactive ready-made sculpture project titled ULINE OFFICIAL Spring/Summer 2017 will blend elements of audience participation, community building, corporate parody, art education, political rehabilitation and the surprisingly complex depths of commercialized material aesthetics. Using the product images found in Uline Shipping Supply Specialist Catalogs as source material, this project reclaims a visual aesthetic that has been lost in the annals of a multinational, politically misguided “family business”. By introducing viewers to a new aesthetic, providing commonly accessible materials, encouraging audience interaction then exhibiting and documenting the results within the context of an art fair we hope to advocate our fundamental belief that art can be made from anything by anyone.

More information about the Artist-Run Art Fair can be found at Artscape.org
