John Riepenhoff “The John Riepenhoff Experience”
This event has ended.
The John Riepenhoff Experience consists of a miniature version of a white-walled, white-floored exhibition venue which visitors may view via ascending a ladder and placing their head through a head-sized hole in the floor of the exhibition space. Inside each Experience is an exhibition - solo or group - curated by Riepenhoff and/or a colleague ; exhibited artwork is scaled down to accommodate the scale of the space - the exhibited Experiences in keeping with the playful collaborative spirit of other Riepenhoff projects. Each of these mini experiences both invites artists to make small gestures for large ideas - as a scale shift happens in the intimacy of experiencing the piece - while simultaneously acknowledging the power of imagination that cultural institutions such as galleries and other venues embody to bring infrastructure and support to other people’s ideas. In this way The John Riepenohff Experience is a letter of support and admiration to the gallerist, the artist, and the viewer.
