Really. So here are some hyper-preliminary images from my art thesis: Everything Will Be Alright. It’s a treasure hunt and these are just some details from elements appearing during the event. During the night of the opening (Thursday, April 21 @5pm if you’re in Tucson!), you will have the opportunity to participate in the treasure hunt. There is of course more to it but, well, it’s a surprise.
The postcards are letterpressed. I initially tried them out on the C&P and, after two fruitless hours, dropped it for the trusty Vandercook. The paper is Crane’s Lettra and there are 50 of these cards in existence. (The museum made a whole bunch of other cards too.)
(Yes, these are sparkly stickers. Yes, they’re a part of the show. Yes, this is an MFA thesis.) There are drawings in the show, in each of the spaces. Here’s a detail. Think: environment, textures, words.
I’ll post more pictures next week and perhaps some of my thoughts on the museum as an institution, which this project is essentially responding to. It also has to do with place and the presence or absence of meaning. In the meantime, if you’re in Tucson next week:
