Organized by Gabriela Vainsencher

Install/Deinstall was a 3-hour long group exhibition that condensed the three main events in the life cycle of every show: the installation of the work, opening night, and deinstallation of the exhibition. Artists included in the show brought their self portraits with them to the opening and installed them upon arrival. When they were ready to leave, they deinstalled and took their work with them.

While some of the works in the show were straight-forward self portraits, many of the artists included in this exhibition do not work in a representational manner, and were invited to create their own riff on the concept. Each artist brought two versions of themselves to the exhibition: one was their actual physical person, and the other was their visual echo, the self portrait, which like a persistent shadow insists on following the artist in and out of the gallery. The exhibition sprung into being, existed ephemerally as works were added and taken away, and then disappeared, along with the last artist who left the opening.
