The Today Show
as part of CS13
On February 18th 2011, CS13 mounted The Today Show, a project that compressed the process of creating and mounting an exhibition into a 24-hour period. The exhibition revisited a concept first explored by the collective at Murmur in 2008, presenting the exhibition process as part performance-- blurring the lines between development and display.
From 5 p.m. on Friday, February 18th to 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 19th, artists mounted an exhibition in which all of the work is conceived, created, installed, documented, written about and presented to the public in a 24 hour period, using the structure and social norms of an art exhibition as the material for a game, specifically that of the relay race.
Artists assumed all necessary roles-- exhibiting artists, curator, critic, arts writer, gallery stuff and exhibition documenter. During this period, the gallery space was be used in a variety of ways-- as studio, gallery, press, and office.
