10 Untitled Drawings (Indulgences), 2010
“…the full or partial remission of temporal punishment due for sins which have already been forgiven.” - Wikipedia
Back in in the fall of 2007, MTAA began to invite artists and art collectives to present one-night exhibitions of time based art in their Brooklyn studio. This ongoing monthly event, Over The Opening (OTO), operated as a blurring of studio space, exhibition venue, social experiment and media laboratory. The artists who worked with OTO represented a diverse range of practices. Using mediated performances, theatrical productions, participatory events, and conceptual lectures, artist who participated in OTO shared interest in how the digital world intersects within the corporeal.
On December 10 of 2009, after 24 exhibitions, MTAA put Over the Opening (OTO) to sleep.
In spring of 2010, MTAA began sending co-editing invites to artist for Goggle doc drawings. The ten invites, sent out without instruction or further information, have resulted in the following 10 collaborative, web based and ongoing drawings.
