See You in September

September 18 – 19, 2010

Parlour No. 18, See You in September, unveils works made over the summer by a group of busy queen bees: Negar Ahkami, Alison Blickle, Megan Burns, Sydney Chastain-Chapman, Jenny Morgan, Colette Robbins, Carolyn Salas, Carmelle Safdie, and Heeseop Yoon. To accompany the exhibition, Parlour asked the artists to write a description of either their new work or the current state of their artistic practice. We also asked the artists to include a brief account of what they were up to this summer, with the hopes of exploring how their adventures, experiences, travels and discoveries this summer might have influenced and inspired their work and process.
