Maintenance Mode

Public Space One — Friday, Dec. 11 (6-8 p.m. opening) – Jan. 23

Public Space One will host a new gallery exhibition, opening Dec. 11, titled Maintenance Mode. The pieces explore the often tense relationship between art and work, and the ways in which artists interact with the “maintenance work” that is a necessary part of their lives. The line that separates what we do to make a living from what we do to make a life is often a hard one to pinpoint; here, several local artists delve into how their work and their art can come to influence one another. Also under artistic scrutiny are the mundane tasks that define daily existence — work that can sometimes be undervalued.

The exhibition includes pieces by Josh Black, Paul Howe, Jason Eisner, Josh Johnson, Michael Kellner, Alexandra Robinson, Jessica Pleyel, M. Earl Williams, Jeff Schmuki, Gretta Louw, Fluxion, Kasey Bullerman, The Sourball Grill and Leah Burke. Curated by Bea Drysdale, the show will be in the gallery through Jan 23.

Maintenance Mode‘s opening reception, set for Friday, Dec. 11 at 6 p.m., will include a pop-up burgers and fries shop hosted by Matthew Fleming and The Sourball Grill.
