Das Wird Sich Alles Finden [everything will turn out alright]
Exhibit Opening Apri. 5, 6-9pm
Artist Talk April 18, 7pm
Arts Collinwood is pleased to present, Das Wird Sich Alles Finden [everything will turn out alright] an exhibition of international artists. The German title speaks to the origin of the exhibit. In the spring of 2011, a group of international artists were selected to take part in an exhibition called The Berlin Project. The original call out stated: ‘The aim of this exhibition is [sic] selecting artists who dedicate their time to create original works who distinguish themselves through technical quality, innovation and sensibility toward the detail.’
Weeks went by and the organizers disappeared without contacting the artists or returning their fee. The artists were left without a show. Frustrated but not defeated, the artists organized themselves and set up a touring exhibition as a way of making things right. The title translates as ‘Everything Will Turn Out Alright’, a sentiment that runs though the project. A curatorial method of picking up these disparate pieces has allowed the exhibition to come together in new and unexpected ways that examine despondency, closure, hope, and accomplishment.
This exhibit, which first showed in Sheffield, UK at Bloc Projects, has expanded its scope for the Arts Collinwood location. Cataloged and curated by Christopher L. Richards, additional works have been added by many of the sixteen artists to give a greater sense of what may have initially drawn the original organizers to these particular artists.
The Cleveland exhibition will take place April 5 thru the 27, 2013 at Arts Collinwood. The artists included are: Kayde Anobile (London, England), Patricia Casey (Sydney, Australia), Yoonsuk Choi (London, England), Amanda Crozat (Paris, France), Niall Dooley (Dublin, Ireland), Lesley Guy (Sheffield, England), Mark Keffer (Cleveland, OH, USA), Robert Lang (Bristol, England), Krystel Marios (Berlin, Germany), Jonathan McFadden (Minnesota, USA), Haroob Mullick (London, England), Lydia Panas (Pennsylvania, USA), Julia Schmid (Berlin, Germany), Mercedes Teixido (California, USA), Joshua Thompson (Hong Kong, China) and Margeret Withers (NYC, USA).
