No Soul For Sale closed yesterday, ending a mad week of performances, exhibitions, lectures, and more. See below for the last of our mini-reports from the festival.
Light Industry put together a packed program this past week, and I would expect no less from this smart and savvy Brooklyn-based cinematheque.
Latitudes, a curatorial office in Barcelona run by Max Andrews and Mariana Cánepa, reconstructed the interior of a Burger King restaurant in their space. The plastic booths ended up as an impromptu rest area for visitors, who could sit and chat or read through the publications and posters documenting Latitudes previous projects.
K48 is a fun and chaotic local fanzine that has showcased many emerging artists and musicians over the past few years. For their project, they built the below inflatable room out of stitched together trash bags. Once inside, there was a sound installation and strobe light.
Lower East Side non-profit arts space Participant, Inc. showed two films by Luther Price on television monitors in their space.
Filipa Oliveira + Miguel Amado
This Lisbon-based curatorial team put together the group exhibition, "If you don't know what the South is it's simply because you are from the North", named after the piece below by Runo Lagomarsino. The show proposed to "respond, comment, and speculate on globalization, displacement and identity on the current international art scene."
The New York-based curatorial office run by Howie Chen and Gabrielle Giattino, Dispatch, advertised their presence at NSFS with the following, "Secondary Market + Artistic Coffee Mugs + Dispatch Portfolio Projects = Dispatch Corp. at No Soul For Sale." Their booth hosted the debut of Hanne Mugaas's Secondary Market in New York, a collection of art ephemera found on eBay.
