THE DECONSUMPTIONISTS ART AS ARCHIVE PRESS AND EXHIBITIONS LINKS
Project Anywhere Award: Project Anywhere is a global blind peer reviewed exhibition program dedicated to art and artistic research at the outermost limits of location-specificity. Although descriptions and images of hosted projects are featured on a dedicated website, Project Anywhere is neither an online exhibition nor a journal. It is instead a vehicle for illuminating artistic projects located beyond or outside traditional exhibition circuits. Project Anywhere is perhaps best imagined as an exhibition comprising the entire globe in which the role of curator is replaced with a peer evaluation system.

EIDIA House is pleased to present Andrea Monti, the second artist exhibiting in The Deconsumptionists Art As Archive project space (a 48-foot tractor-trailer trailer situated in a truck- yard in Bushwick Brooklyn.) Monti will open with an installation LOOSE ENDS, and performance, AKURUM, on Saturday June 1ST during Bushwick Open Studios weekend.
LOOSE ENDS features new ink-jet prints and installations by Brooklyn-based artist Andrea Monti. The works on view, dwelling on the idea of the end - as in the end of a cultural trend, a political era, a particular medium, an artistic movement (not excluding the artwork itself) unable to reach their epilogue, loosely cycling through time, indefinitely delayed and never effectively tied-up. Many of the works in the exhibition borrow from pop culture iconography commenting on the power of object and image—the ability to transcend temporal constraints and enter the suspended realm of the collective imagery.
