21-04-2018 12:00:00 17-06-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Chloë Bass: The Book of Everyday Instruction | 6:00 PM Knockdown Center presents Chloë Bass: The Book of Everyday Instruction, an eight-chapter investigation of one-on-one social interaction, exploring an expanded understanding of "the pair." This exhibition will be the first time the project is exhibited in its entirety, and includes all eight chapters developed by Bass between January 2015 and January 2018 as well as additional interventions created in response to Knockdown Center's public spaces outside of the gallery. Bass uses daily life as a site of research to study the modes and scales of intimacy, locating where patterns hold and break as group sizes expand. Her works prioritize the fostering and observing of everyday interpersonal situations, and take a variety of forms across photography, text, video, sculpture, performance, a mobile phone app, poetic modes of documentation, and site-specific interventions. Presented in sequential chapters, each with its own central question and focus, Bass' inquiries expand in scale and scope; she begins with an investigation of intimacy between herself and a stranger, and expands outward to study the relationships between individuals and their safe spaces, institutions, and finally cities. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=283823 Knockdown Center Knockdown Center
