everything your heart desires

Start             5.7.15
End               5.30.15
Reception    5.7.15, Thursday, 6-8 pm

What do you want most? This question was posed to five Seattle artists who work primarily in film and video. Their replies look closely at intimacy and imagination, and also function as a meditation on artist self-portraiture. After all, so often we are told to approach Life via what society tells us we should to want. Desire looks quite different when artists re-map their interior selves, unfiltered.

Everything your heart desires is curated by C. Davida Ingram. Participating artists include Canh Nguyen, Kat Larson, Megumi Shauna Arai, Rodrigo Valenzuela, and Zorn B. Taylor.

One second.

One day.
One week.
One month.
One year.

Blocks of time continually pass. Joana Stillwell’s 160 Hours is an attempt to confine art-making within a block of time. It is a way to think about notions of productivity, failure, and legitimacy, as Stillwell rationalizes, scrutinizes, and humorizes her art-practice.
