Hillerbrand+Magsamen, out of Houston, were scheduled to mount a show of their ongoing Devices project at Austin’s Big Medium in April, but it’s been rescheduled due to coronavirus closures. Ever inventive, the duo-cum-family of artists launched a project called Tiny Big Medium (#tinybigmedium), for which they asked “YOU to install work remotely into the space through a creative tiny paper version of the gallery or a #tinybigmedium!”
The (charming) invite and instructions are in the video below.

Also: “The performance Devices for Preparation & Comfort took place on April 26, 2020 for the Fusebox Festival Virtual Edition. Hillerbrand + Magsamen + (Stopschinski) + [Lynn] shared music, images, and activities intended to provide Comfort and Preparation for quarantines both actual and internal.”
