Seed Space / 1201 4th Ave. S., Suite 131 May 7, 2016 - June 6, 2016
Mary Addison Hackett
The Repair Project (And Other Affairs of Just Plain Living) is a conceptual piece/ socially engaged artwork in which Hackett mends items in need of repair as a starting point for a discussion about labor, use-value, and exchange. For the project at Seed Space, Hackett's mended work clothes will be on view during the exhibition. During the opening reception, Hackett will have a small workstation where she will sit and mend. Visitors may bring in an item to be repaired on site or left for donation. At the end of the exhibit, there will be a closing reception celebrating the repairs. Through this exchange, members of the community will have an opportunity to participate in a reflective and accessible cultural experience.
