A Strong Hand That Nonetheless Gets You Nowhere by Blake Carrington
A Strong Hand That Nonetheless Gets You Nowhere is a book of open-ended scores by Blake Carrington and an exhibition of artists’ enactments of those scores. It combines the architectural plans of religious spaces, stadiums, offices, barns and homes with site-specific infographics poetry. The notated plans then become catalysts for wide-ranging creative responses by 20 commissioned artists.
Hans Ulrich Obrist, speaking of Mies van der Rohe’s temporary structure the Barcelona Pavilion, says that the pavilion’s plan is a score for rebuilding it. For our purposes, each notated plan is a score for collaboratively building something ephemeral, immaterial, active, abstract or ambiguous.
This collaborative exhibition and performance event will last one night only.
Participating artists to be named.
