“Every (ongoing) Day” opens at Arena 1 Gallery tonight. Organized by Jody Zellen and Pam Posey, the exhibition showcases ritual durational projects undertaken by artists on a daily basis to track changes or to mark the day. Over time each artist has amassed a large archive that is both very personal and very public (daily Instagram posts). Looking back over years or decades of daily creations, a very specific relationship to his/her larger practice emerges. This exhibition presents a fragment of these ongoing projects as a way to glean an understanding into an artist’s process and private methods of working. Artists include: Deborah Aschheim, Karl Baden, Laura Cooper and Nick Taggart, Hasan Elahi, Nancy Floyd, Martin Gantman, Margot Guralnick, Annetta Kapon, Jamie Newton, Pam Posey, John F. Simon, Jr., Christina Price Washington, Jody Zellen, and Sean Zellmer.
