December 3 - February 18, 2024
From Co-Opts Research + Projects:
“CO-OPt Research + Projects, as an artist-run space, opened in July 2019 with an exhibition of works in progress by its founding members. Now four years on, we present a second exhibition of works in progress by our current members.
Works In Progress II serves as a re-introduction to the artist-members of CO-OPt and the function of the space as a working artist studio, featuring work by J. Eric Simpson, Aaron Hegert, Cody Arnall, Heather Warren-Crow, and Justin Houser. At the opening on December 3, you are invited to view these new works as a glimpse into our working processes and research.
At the opening, Justin Houser, new member at CO-OPt and curator of the Longitudes experimental music series, will perform at 6pm.
In the gallery, Works In Progress II will feature a two-channel video work by Aaron Hegert (Everything Is Collective), sculptures by Cody Arnall, and a new multi-media work by J. Eric Simpson. In the library, recordings of Justin Houser’s music and sound works will be featured in a listening station. In the projection room, Heather Warren-Crow will present a sound installation, along with a tub of compost with analog film degrading inside. Visitors are invited to bring compost/coffee grounds to add to the compost bin.
Work in progress by Aaron Hegert (Everything Is Collective).
