Houston artist Molly Gochman is closing the doors on her Commune on North space with the third of her clothing giveaway performances on Saturday, August 23rd. We quote from Deborah Colton Gallery‘s press release: "When she began
the GIVE-AWAY PROJECT in 2002, Gochman invited people throughout Houston to
take place in an exchange, ‘Take home free clothes by modeling what you
love’. Led by their curiosity, participants wove between the candy colored
clothing and each other. It seemed as if garments were hovering at
various heights within a large warehouse space. People chatted with
each other. They also interacted with the objects by fondling them and
evaluating their sizes and other features. They were considering the
possibilities for these objects. Then, through documenting themselves
with their chosen items, participants helped Gochman fulfill one of the
intentions of this work, to investigate and record taste."
