Route, Rut, Lane: A Karkhana Collaboration
Opening reception Friday October 12th 7-9pm
Open during the Brewery Artwalk October 13th and 14th 11-6pm
Route, Rut, Lane: A Karkhana Collaboration is a contemporary conceptual mixed – media project that was inspired by the historical Mughal workshop that produced elaborate miniatures. A select group of 8 artists (S. Portico Bowman, Carlyn M. Clark, Johnny Fox, Margaret Lazzari, Luke Reichle, Chris Russell, Caryl St Ama, Nancy Kay Turner), diverse in age, geography and artistic practice, worked solo on each piece before sending it on to fellow collaborators.
While the content was not planned, the works developed as commentaries on personal, social and religious conditions of today. The group developed a surprisingly consistent mixed- media aesthetic since the project originated in January 2018.
The project culminates with this show at The Shoebox Projects, which will be on view during the upcoming Brwery Artwalk and Open Studios on October 13 and 14.
