A summer-long collaboration between the gallery and local furniture designers Mercury Bureau and Tom Chung with art, design, cocktails, and conversation.

About

When most of our time is spent inside (surrounded by objects), how do interiors drive and host our lives? What divides public and private space? Is there importance in cultivating person-to-object relationships? Since we lead lives filled with distraction, how can we compose environments that encourage reflection?

We have decided to forego a thematic exhibition this season in favor of a summer-long collaboration between the gallery and local furniture designers Mercury Bureau and Tom Chung with art, design, cocktails, and conversation. Taking the viewing room―a traditionally private space—as point of inquiry, this evolving installation will offer improvisational proposals for domestic space. By presenting a rotating selection of artworks from inventory, our hope is to provide space to re-examine a work’s meaning and qualities of relation outside their original context.*

We are more interested in cultivating speculation than didactics and in asking questions than providing answers. As such, refreshments will be served daily. In addition, Feel Good Guru has prepared a special pick-up menu of summer salads that we encourage you to enjoy in the gallery.
