2017 at the Pollock Gallery
February 4 - March 11
Co-Work Space for Potential Dropouts by Avi Varma and curated by Pollock Curatorial Fellow Sofia Bastidas.
Hacking the Common Sense sessions every Friday from 5pm to 12am
The Co-Work Space for Potential Dropouts is a debt and grade free experiment in education. It assumes the constructivist maxim that all art propagates the conditions of its own conception. The Co-Work Space for Potential Dropouts is an investigation into what philosopher Timothy Morton calls “ambient poetics,” encoding in the gallery space the physical, social, and aesthetic environments so prevalent and influential yet still below the surface of consciousness. The Co-Work Space will address issues having to do with advertising, global warming and the university. To this end, the main components of the project are a gallery installation modelled after a co-work space, including a promotional video, a fictional course catalog, a website and extended open hours every Friday during the run of the exhibition for the Hacking the Common Sense sessions.
