June 24 - July 23, 2016
MASS’ 2016 Solo Cup award show featuring works by Marfa, TX-based Sam Schonzeit and Geneva, Switzerland-based Vianney Fivel. The show will feature the following elements:
1. The public will be invited to digitize three dimensional objects, be they art works, objects, or heirlooms on the Portmanteau Rotary Plate. Participants will bring their object to the gallery, put it on the rotary plate and the artists will film it as it rotates. The digitized objects will later be shown by Portmanteau in a variety of locations, scenarios and platforms as yet TBD.
2. SHOWING PEOPLE a gallery within a gallery, a group show where reluctant or recalcitrant creatives will be invited to show their work.
3. Sam Schonzeit will be offering haircuts with an electric razor.
4. Sam and Vianney plan to operate a moving and taxi service called Sam with Vianney with Van. The artists will provide a moving and taxi service around greater Austin and perhaps farther if the price is right. An opportunity to support the artists and to spend quality time with them.
