Fine Arts Staff Michelle Chong Co-Curates Show in Bolsky


Fine Arts Office Manager and Short House Director Michelle Chong has co-curated WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE IDEA?  The exhibition is the second collaboration between Short House in Los Angeles and The Institute of Jamais Vu (IJV) in London. Both exhibitions are part of Project LALO, an international exchange between dynamic emerging contemporary art spaces in London and LA. There will be a reception on Thursday, April 3, 7-10 pm.

For this exhibition, IJV has invited Black Dogs, a collective based out of Leeds, England to participate in the week long residency with Short House in the Bolsky Gallery at Otis College of Art & Design. Each day of the residency, Black Dogs will set a task for participating gallery visitors using a set list of ‘methods’ and ‘prompts’ to create an artistic response to the question “What’s your favourite idea?” Follow Black Dogs on Twitter for up to date details as the project progresses: Black Dogs.
In addition, Short House has curated new works of photography and video from artists who use the mediums in a variety of ways; documentation, narrative, pictorial, discursive critique, and humor.
