Temporary Home @ Guest Spot’s Inaugural Opening Tonight

There’s a new art gallery opening tonight. From 7-10 pm, Guest Spot will open its doors to the public for the first time with its inaugural show, Temporary Home, which is curated by Carl Gunhouse and features the work of Becky Alprin, City Blossoms, Jason Hughes, John Lehr, and Christine Rogers.

Early buzz has it that this will be a fine show and an exciting gallery.

John Lehr's 2008 piece, Nuggets, is an example of the work on display in the Temporary Home exhibit.

We’d love to tell you more about it, but reading through some of this gallery’s copy left us pulling our hair and yelling ENGLISH MOTHERFUCKER! DO YOU SPEAK IT?! If you’d like to know more, you can go over to the Guest Spot website (which is actually a very well designed site) and sift through many paragraphs like this:

“The unique curatorial program focuses on ideas surrounding impermanence and liminal context within a home dwelling. Artists and curators will have the opportunity to install work in a mixed use space, thus challenging the singularity of commercial space and exploring the delicate relationship between space and purpose.”

or this:

“Guest Spot’s focus is to create a new curatorial program that addresses current ideas of exhibiting art through rehabilitation of spatial contexts. The core programmatic theme is a re-appropriation of rigid societal norms of space utilization to more thoroughly examine the concept of the ”American Home”. Its program will include artists whose works deals with concepts relating to impermanence, ephemerality, and liminality.”

We suspect it may just be easier to go down there and have a look-see for ourselves. By the end of tonight, we may not understand the mission statement, but at least we’ll know what Marcellus Wallace looks like.
