Exhibit gathers 29 artists through a process based on the children’s game of telephone, also known as whisper down the lane.

Five artists (Dana DeGuilio, David Leggett, Christopher Meerdo, Cauleen Smith and Stephanie Syjuco) were invited to exhibit work, and ask another artist, who would exhibit and in turn ask another artist, and so on.

The broad themes communicated to the first round of artists were shared artist-to-artist by phone or in person.

Who picked whom and why, as well as what connections may be drawn between works and artists, will be revealed at the opening, July 10, 5-8 p.m.

Artists: Emanuel Almborg, Judith Brotman, Dana DeGiulio, Cayetano Ferrer, Krista Franklin, Aaron Frisby, Karolina Gnatowski, Sidsel Meineche Hansen, Brad Hayes, Clive Hodgson, Elizabeth Isakson-Dado, Merlin James, Olalekan B.
