tmto szn: or a story about the dangers of industrial thought Friday, July 8 2022 Appointment only viewing July 9-10
David Lisbon was born in 1994 in Kansas City, Missouri. He is an independent curator, architect, and designer. He hopes to use all of these skills to help creatively tell the stories of artists who might otherwise be overlooked or pigeon-holed by contemporary institutions. For the summer show at Quarter’s Gallery, he muses:
Often as I wonder through the constantly stuffed and re-stuffed key food on
Myrtle avenue, I wonder if my being there makes me complicit. I stop and
As I stand Comparing the Idaho and Red potatoes under the fluorescents, I
wonder. Where did this produce come from? I leave the first fingerprint on a
newly placed waxy red apple at the top of the pile, who was the last person to
touch this plant before it became a product? Was this person paid? Were they
paid a living wage? Where are they now?
The pause is brief, I digress and continue.
This work imagines itself as a middleman or intermediary that exists within
this pause. This work is about tomatoes, but it’s also about self reflection.
Springtime 2022 Friday, May 6 2022
Appointment only viewing May 7-8
Belonging to all of us; Springtime is mystic, perennial, profound, fleeting, abundant, renewing, holy, sad and silly, inevitable, wet, pure, liturgically grueling, accommodating of hope, loss, and longing…
For the physical inception of Quarters Gallery; eleven artists inquire, propose, memorialize, imagine, remember, and divinate spring on earth, when the darkness has reached it’s end, and the same flowers come up again and again and again.
