10 x 10 – Richmond Takes the Gallery
From June 2 – August 9, 2015, 1708 will open its doors to 10 artists and community organizations. Each of these individuals or groups will occupy the gallery for one week, for a total of 10 weeks.
Inspired by a program at Nurture Art, New York, 10 x 10 is an experiment—an open platform that treats the gallery as a communal space. Artists and organizations will use the time and the space to try something different, to test an idea, to experiment with a project, and to engage with new audiences. Across these 10 projects, a picture of the originality and quirkiness, intelligence and ambition, and overall creativity of Richmond’s community will be highlighted.
This post will act as a way to highlight videos created throughout 10 x 10. For the most current video and an up-to-date schedule of events please visit www.1708gallery.org.Videos by Janelle Proulx and supported by VibrAlign.
