We Are a Crowd of Others
by Gail Grinnell, Sam Wildman, & Eric John Olson

Open Studio: September 19th – December 2nd
Open House: Saturday, December 3rd, 4-7pm
Completed Exhibit: December 3rd – January 28th

Starting this week, Gail Grinnell, Sam Wildman and Eric John Olson are the artists in residence at Seattle’s MadArt.

During their residency, this trio of artists will create a site specific installations, host dinners, lectures, and performances, publish a zine, and invite others to participate.

Gal Grinnell’s piece, We are a Crowd of Others, will be made out of hundreds of yards of spun polyester that has been drawn on, dyed and cut out by the artist. Grinnell uses textiles as a conduit that can extend the life of an action. In the studio she performs actions that were adapted from movements her mother used while making clothing, with the belief that they somehow contain an identity beyond her own. At the center of her practice is a supposition: people and places are transmutable and can exist, or be contained in an action or a process.  Her installation at MadArt, composed of hundreds of yards of dyed and cut spun polyester, twists the idea of a space that is haunted into a haunting that defines a space. The public is invited to visit during the Open Studio hours and observe the process as it unfolds.  Here is a listing from Seattle Magazine 2016 Fall Arts Preview
