Curated by Adam Carr
Midway Contemporary Art is pleased to present an exhibition entitled Post Notes, that will occupy the office space of Midway during the last two weeks of April. Opening on April 15th, the exhibition features the work of more than 50 artists who were invited by London-based artist Adam Carr to contribute a work utilizing a standard Post It note.
Carr invited artists via a letter requesting the recipient take a Post It note, create a work, and mail this to Carr’s apartment in London. The artists only limitation was to retain the essence of the Post It. The response ranges from Jonathan Monk’s poetic offerings “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow”, “Today is just a copy of Yesterday (etc)”, Liam Gillick’s instruction for the director of Midway to elect a book for which Carr will denote pages of interest using Post It notes, to a tale of an unrealized project issued by Tue Greenfort comprising of a carrier pigeon and unsuitable weather conditions.
The exhibition seeks to explore particular curatorial concerns where unorthodox exhibition display, the ephemeral qualities of art production and exhibition construction are the main co- ordinates. An evolving and nomadic exhibition; Post Notes was on view at the ICA in London last month, prior to its arrival in Minneapolis and will continue beyond, attainting new meaning through the context of each transitory installation.
