9×18: The Parking Lot Experiment
May 9, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Back for its fourth year, 9×18: The Parking Lot Art Experiment is an alternative/performative/experimental/live art fair taking over the parking lot across the street from Camp Washington’s Wave Pool Gallery on May 9, 2020, from 4 to 8 p.m. “9×18” describes the dimensions of a standard parking space, and that space constraint is the only rule to abide by for this fair. The typical tents, wire hangers, and plastic sleeves for goods sold will be absent from this fair. Instead, viewers will be inundated with performance, art actions, experimental engagements, and ephemeral works. 9×18 came about when a group of local creatives asked a simple question: “Where can artists who don’t create and sell easily commodified objects showcase their work to a large and accessible public?” 9×18 aims to answer this question and change the way we look at art fairs. It’s less about purchasing work (though there will be some opportunity for that) and more about creating an immersive experience.
