May 21 – Aug 25, 2018
7 – 9 pm
Living Together is an exhibition featuring the work of five artists – Betsy Alwin, Mara Duvra, Teréz Iacovino, Haley Prochnow, Emmet Ramstad, and Jen Sonibare – whose practices analyze our encounters with interior environments, the objects we live with, and spaces we live in, and do so often by marrying materials and disciplines in unexpected ways. The collective works form a range-ystill life or a Period Room of a conceptual parlor. Exhibitions are living arrangements; objects and artists are gathered in a room and co-habitate for months. The exhibition asks us to consider what does this living arrangement look like? How do exhibition spaces feel like home and not a showroom? What art do we choose to live with, and what artifacts do we inherit? How do we create spaces for ourselves, as artists, not only to live safely and comfortably, but to show our work publicly and form a livelihood? As art spaces adapt to changing support structures and economies, how will we change our living arrangements to continue our work?
The exhibition will include a public conversation prompted by these questions in late July.

About Gallery 71
Gallery 71 is an artist-run gallery space at 71 France. Located in the heart of Edina, the gallery contributes to art and dialogue around issues including misconceptions of the suburbs, the myth of the artist, new rules for the artist-run spaces, how we live with art (and artists), urban planning, and the importance of being a good neighbor.

About Waiting Room
Waiting Room is a non-fixed platform intended to support artists through visual and personal networks. Born out of a start-up ethos, Waiting Room insists that artists can bypass the traditional gallery model and grow their own audiences through genuine relationship-building. The duration and focus of this program and space will be responsive to the changing values of artists, audiences and patrons. At present, Waiting Room produces exhibitions and public programming at Gallery 71.
