Dustin Grella: Notes to Self
March 29 – April 28, 2012
Opening in the AC Institute Satellite Space on the 2nd floor of 547 W. 27th St., Suite 210
All exhibitions are free and open to the public.
Notes to Self:
In his Notes to Self project, Grella has written and then mailed himself a letter every day for over ten years. The exercise has generated 3650 letters (and counting), which remain meticulously ordered and still sealed to this day. The slight variations in the project, a change of font, the physical location of the cancellation stamp, and of course what is written inside, are nuances that help decipher time's complexities.
This performance was made possible, in part, by the Franklin Furnace Fund supported by the Jerome Foundation; the Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
