Opening Rejection

June 18, 2011, 2-8pm
Bedford Ave betw. No. 9th & No. 10th
Brooklyn, NY

Ugly Art Room has constructed a 6' x 6' x 6' structure on Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn. This claustrophobic cube houses the miniature works of 17 artists. Each artist has been given 5" x 5" wood panels pre-drilled with a hole in each. Completed works are bolted to the interior walls of the "gallery" and the public is welcome to enter the cube to be a part of the unsettlingly awkward "opening rejection."

Ali Aschman, Elana Adler, Joe Ballweg, Melissa Bartlett, Lisa Bauer, Scott Chasse, Barry Chesser, Erik Dalzen, Kyle R. Garnett, Jackie Hoving, John Kesling, Jac Lahav, Michael Aaron Lee, Michelle Mackey, Allison Maletz, Kate Nielson, Ramón Urenia, Jing Wei
