In collaboration with Porto Vista Hotel, 1805 Gallery is thrilled to announce the launch of Conveyor, an exhibition series that takes place inside the elevators at the Porto Vista Hotel in Little Italy, San Diego. Curated by Lauren Siry, select contemporary artists will create art installations that respond to the intimate and often overlooked space.
1805 Gallery is pleased to present To Do • A Mending Project, a collaborative residency with artists Michelle Montjoy, Anna O'Cain and Siobhán Arnold. To Do • A Mending Project is a response to the escalating political, social and economic tensions in the United States that has increased divisions within communities.
In support of inclusivity and open communication, To Do will host free workshops focused on acts of repair from October 5 through November 6, 2018 . An artist reception will be held on Thursday, October 4, from 6-8PM. To Do will guide community participants in knitting holes in sweaters, repairing jewelry, changing flat tires, and joining in simple activities like breathing or reading silently together. This project encourages mending actions as a mode of sustainability and creative community engagement. This is what we do. This is what we can do.
