BILL COTTMAN: Disturbances

Our friend and neighbor, photographer Bill Cottman, is planning something unusual and exploratory for our November show.

In a recent conversation with Bill, the following bits of information emerged:

• Instead of the usual opening event when the show is complete, there will be three Tuesday events as the content and form of the show emerges

• Each of the three events will focus on one aspect of Bill's work as photographer, writer and projectionist

• The "gallery talk" aspect of each Tuesday event will include a conversation between Bill and another invited guest with expertise in the genre of work under discussion

• During the run of the show, Bill will be changing the location of things on the floor space in unpredictable ways

Special hours for this show only: Monday through Sunday 5pm to 9pm and by appointment (call or text 612 240-4581)

Tuesday events: November 15th, 22nd, and 29th each beginning at 6:45pm

Bill's show, unlike any other in our gallery over the past sixteen years, surfaced an avalanche of new thinking - about what a gallery show is and could be, about why artists do what they do, about the purpose and function of art in our lives, and, too, about how flexible our gallery space is.

All of the above has been disturbing, in the very best sense of the word - exactly what Bill was trying to show us.
