Statistics of Hope, a collaborative exhibition by Ghost of a Dream and Jennifer Dalton, explores chance, risk, hope, and truth through an interactive installation inviting viewers to explore the extent to which the odds of health, love and success are in their favor.

Please join us on the last hour of the last day of the exhibition as three fascinating speakers contextualize and broaden the major themes of the exhibition with brief presentations. And if you haven't seen the show, Sunday May 13th is your last chance!

Perspectives on Risk, Chance and Hope (LAST CHANCE)
Sunday, May 13th, 5pm
601Artspace, 88 Eldridge Street, NYC

CHANCE
Decision analysis software developer Chris Dalton will give a demonstration on probabilities and how to best approach decision-making when the important variables are uncertain (aka all the time).

RISK
Art dealer and art fair founder Edward Winkleman will discuss the risks to an artist's hard-earned market, looking at it from both the artists’ and their galleries’ perspectives.

HOPE
Artist and activist Sarah Sandman views hope as a catalyst for her work in which she creates and facilitates direct art actions. She will tell the story of Brick x Brick, a nationwide performance art project in response to misogyny and Donald Trump’s presidential nomination and later election. What started as a personal art project quickly grew into a grassroots movement and continues building moment today.

“Hope just means another world might be possible, not promised, not guaranteed. Hope calls for action; action is impossible without hope.” Rebecca Solnit, Hope in the Dark (Via Sarah Sandman)
