Fragments

August 21 – 22, 2010

Realizing that Parlour No. 17 would mark our final show before turning the mature and legal age of 18, we decided this would be a good time to revisit some of our past shows and put together a mini retrospective of what and where Parlour has been before moving forward. As all histories are subjective narratives anyway, we decided it would be much more honest and interesting to give this job to someone else. Enter Meenakshi Thirukode, a playful and innovative curator whose practice is very much interested in institutional critique. Fragments, her vision of our project not only reaches into the past, but into a fictional apocalyptic future.

Parlour No. 17 includes works by the following artists from past Parlour shows: Mai Ueda, Stephanie Michelle Max and Jeffrey Max, Ali Aschman and Andrzej Nowicki (Little Guy Xylophone), Lane Arthur, Jennifer Dudley, Evie Falci, Ted Mineo, Hein Koh, Colette Murphy, Colette Robbins, Alison Blickle, Corey D’Augustine, Langdon Graves, Trish Tillman, Beau Buck, Stefano Minzi, Selena Kimball, Jessica Slaven, Lara Allen, Orit Ben-Shitrit and Harold Moss, Amanda Friedman, Anthony Discenza, Daniel Eatock and Faten Kanaan.
