Opening at Artspace tonight

50 Orange St, New Haven, (203) 772-2709
Apr. 2-June 6, 2009
Opening reception: Thurs., Apr. 2, 6-8 p.m., with artist talks at 6:30 p.m.

I happened to notice while reading the Cal of the Hartford Courant this morning that a new series of shows are opening this evening at Artspace in New Haven. I haven't been receiving press release emails from Artspace since last fall despite my email request to Communication Director Jemma Williams that I be added (back) onto the press list. At any rate, I copied this info from Artspace's Web site:

(Un)spoken is a group exhibition that explores the boundaries of collaboration and artistic production within the context of a marital relationship. Linda Ganjian and Jesse Lambert, Karen Dow and Christopher Mir, and Maggie Michael and Dan Steinhilber are artists-couples with children and professional arts careers living and working in the Eastern United States. Unlike other contemporary artists-couples, such as Jeanne-Claude and Christo, the six artists included in (un)spoken have worked to create art individually, but never collaboratively. For this exhibition, Artspace and curator Jessica Buckley, have asked each of these couples to create new collaborative works that will be shown in Gallery 1 through June 6. Each artist will show individual works in Galleries 27 through May 9.
