Vote Change Write-in at Glowlab Oct 23-Nov 11 NYC

Vote Change Write-in will be part of Glowlab’s first show at their new Soho Space. Pick up free stickers at the gallery during the opening on October 23 (7-10pm) and after while supplies last.

“Vote Change Write-In” is a pair of street stickers. One says “What do you vote for?” and the other, “What do you want to change?” Each has a large write-in box for public comment.

They are simultaneously a celebration and critique of electoral politics, a prod to vote and an invitation towards imagination and participation that go beyond a few minutes at the ballot box.

Stickers will be installed in outdoor spaces throughout the neighborhood. You’ll also be able to pick up free stickers and sharpies at the gallery. Put them up yourself, or pass them around to friends. Add your own comments, or leave them blank for public write-ins.

More about the show:

“For “Thirty Grand,” Glowlab presents new prints and silkscreen works on panels by Jason Cantoro and Alice Jarry, two artists from Montreal who share a studio space and offer works rich with texture and densely layered with collaged imagery gathered from sources ranging from old cityscapes to vintage airplanes, motorcycles and roller coasters. New York artist David Kesting’s wall drawings and works on paper offer a timely and often humorous look at street culture, with a particular focus on the current economic stresses impacting daily city life. Beka Goedde’s recently completed small multimedia works on paper examine the delicate balance of structures in the built environment. Sal Randolph’s latest project includes a series of free stickers and an invitation to express one’s opinion about voting both inside and outside the gallery space.”

Glowlab is also the instigator of the annual psychogeographic Conflux.
