GUTS is 153 meters of white floor-to-ceiling curtains and the space they enclose. GUTS is also what transpires in this space: a program of art exhibitions, readings, and performances. The soft walls diffuse light, dampen sound, and require creative hanging. They are temporary and transient, deployed only when needed and portable by suitcase. When unfurled, GUTS becomes a site of political and aesthetic digestion. To take digestion as the guiding principle for an exhibition space is to acknowledge that it takes time to process art and that making or consuming art is not always productive. Taste may determine what enters the digestive system, but the gut is responsible for sorting nutrients from waste. This task is imperfect and never-ending but it provides sustenance. GUTS invites viewers to ruminate and strives to offer energy for future exercise.
Guts is now hibernating and will resume its activities in spring 2023.
We wish you a beautiful winter and see you soon.
