Spin (After Sol LeWitt)
2017-ongoing temporary performance
Working with a group of professional sign spinners, Spin is at once a collaborative experiential project, public performance, and site-based installation that activates and recontextualizes Sol LeWitt’s foundational text, Sentences on Conceptual Art. This project draws together sign spinners, audiences, and sites specifically existing outside the walls of the gallery. Through social engagement, the exchange of knowledge, and the reframing of contemporary art and sign spinning, Spin looks at the contradictory impulses (inclusive versus exclusive) found in conceptual art that work within intersecting communities in the public sphere.
