GRAY SPACE is a cube-shaped itinerant art space, welded and wheeled by artists. The 6’x6’x6’ GRAY SPACE will be parked for a day at various locations throughout Oregon. The artists of the GRAY SPACE group will install their individual work in or alongside the GRAY SPACE module, creating a space of inclusion and dialogue.
GRAY SPACE intentionally engages an audience without the confines and expectations of a gallery or art center. The artist will be on site. The project explores the interplay between site, context, art and viewer, and activates public space.
THE GRAY SPACE GROUP
GRAY SPACE artists are Kate Ali, Lee Imonen, Michael Boonstra, Kathleen Caprario, Sandee McGee, Andrew Myers, Leah Wilson, Renee Couture and Vicki Amorose.
We are Oregon-based artists who gather around an ideaphoric concept: the traveling installation space, freely accessible to random audiences.
GRAY SPACE artists are well versed in the mechanisms of art funding; but with this project, we choose to jump the fences of institutional thinking. We grant each other permission to install our individual work inside the Gray Space. As collaborators, we find momentum together and tap the generative resource of each other’s creative drive.
