Chain Letter is a group exhibition based on admiration. Initially
conceived by Christian Cummings and Doug Harvey in 2006, inclusion in the
exhibition is based on invitation by someone who admires one’s work. Each
artist invited, then invites ten other artists whom they admire, and so
on. This email invite will circulate for thirty days, at the end of which
each artist will install their own work on the floor at Shoshana Wayne
This exhibition is rooted in the ideals of inclusion, and highlights the
social nature of the art world. It is the hope of the curators that the
response will be vast and that the artists represented will be an
exponential representation of all artists that are currently working and
admired by their peers.
Chain Letter mimics communication today; and the way in which information
is passed. The outcome will be a testament to the power of connectivity
within society at present.
Other cities worldwide will be participating in the Chain Letter
exhibition including New York City, London, Paris, Johannesburg,
Philadelphia, Boston, Seoul.
