In “The Expanding Gallery” I take the level of focus and careful looking that I experience in a gallery, out into the world. To do so, I have printed wall labels and stickers in three loose categories: ephemera, installations, and found objects. I affix these near the “works” I have discovered, photograph the piece, take note of the location, add to the expanded gallery instagram handle, and leave the label for others to find and consider. In a sense, I am curating my world and expanding my gallery wherever I go.
By sharing labels for anyone to place then post at #theexpandinggallery, I question what “art” is, and who is responsible for that determination (I also wonder why we look to signage to make something official.)
If you would like a card or sticker, please email
