Unload: Pick Up the Pieces

Thursday, Jul 12, 2018 from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM

Location: Artspace, 50 Orange St, New Haven, CT

Join Artspace (50 Orange St, New Haven) on Thursday, July 12, 2018, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm for a Knolling performance event with members of artist Tom Sachs’ studio, presented through the collaborative efforts of the Unload Foundation Inc., the Ely Center of Contemporary Art, and Artspace. Knolling itself is a method of organizing related objects by arranging them either parallel to one another or at 90-degree angles, though this event will specifically be dealing with gun parts from a Connecticut Gun Buyback organized by the Unload Foundation Inc.

After the Knolling, artists may pick a free gun part to transform into a piece of art, from drawings to poems to installations. Please register using the form below.

These works will be displayed in an unjuried exhibition, #Unload: Pick Up the Pieces, at Ely Center of Contemporary Art (51 Trumbull St, New Haven) from October 11 to November 11, 2018.  To apply to exhibit in #Unload: Pick Up the Pieces, use the link https://www.elycenter.org/opencall-unload. The only requirement is that the artwork addresses our culture’s divided attitudes toward gun control, gun safety, gun reform, the Second Amendment, or recent events related to gun use, safety, and violence.
