21a MOSTRA [9o SIMPOSIO] febbraio - marzo 2012

Courtesy Roman Abramovich: The First Unveiling

A simposio exhibit

Conceived abroad and elaborated over the course of a very white night, and not without whiter nights elsewhere in mind, Courtesy Roman Abramovich: The First Unveiling is predicated upon rumors and secrets, possessions and passions, and the momentous removal of shrouds.

Please join us for an evening of intrigue and revelation.

Saturday, 18 February 2012, 7-10pm. Unveiling to take place at approximately 8pm. Please plan accordingly.

Please join us for an additional viewing on 10 March 2012, 6-10pm, during Beat Nite, organized by Jason Andrew of Norte Maar. More information, including a listing of the other participating art spaces, here.

Closing reception Friday, 23 March, 7-10pm.
Afterparty at The Narrows.

The opening's intimacy never waned. 

At times it soared. 

We reckon we rather nailed it. 

To carry on and on and on.
Reflections of, reflections upon: To carry on and on and on.

All a mystery, a priori.
