April 10 - June 10, 2021
“TOOO is a group show of wild art, installed outdoors in public spaces across Austin, Texas, and beyond, for the month of April 2021. TOOO builds upon two preceding exhibitions, TO and TOO. TO was an outdoor show of paths and directions considered on the eve of a new lunar year. A month later, as the work from TO half-faded, TOO added new work, new paths. Now all but one work from TO remains. TOOO presents a set of renewed options a generation removed from their origins. The work is wild art, sculptures and interventions mixing it up in semi-overlooked spaces. The gallery is dispersed across Austin, and the art experience encompass the experience of searching for the work.

“TOOO marks a year of Northern-Southern’s pandemic programming, mostly outdoor shows of wild art. Each outdoor shows tried a new way to disperse an exhibition in time and space. LEFT IN LEAVES trickled out at random, day by day, the artists improvising locations and works throughout May 2020. NO OUTLET opened all at once, an August bloom. Street signs were repurposed as didactic: each piece was installed at a marked dead end. The show presented options at the end of options. Sterling Allen’s PHOTOREALISM was a solo show on an overlookable unleased office ground. Allen’s wild art permeated the leave behind and refuse, tipping the distinction between art and non-art toward universal transcendence. TO presented directions and paths as work. Work was not deinstalled, it decayed. TOO renewed TO; new works added to the surviving pieces. TOOO renews TO a second time. Only one work remains from TO: Alyssa Taylor Wendt’s audio meditation on art scenes of the past. A few things hold on from TOO, but they too will fade before the term of the show. The artists in TOOO are a mix of old and new, all making new work. A new generation creates new paths. We live in motion. Nothing is still for even a second. We continue continuing, and continually change. Every breathe is a renewal. The white walls are only in our minds.”
