Leslie Mutchler at Lawndale Art Center

From http://trendfactory2012.tumblr.com
Please join former P.R.I.N.T Press artist-in-residence Leslie Mutchler for the opening of TrendFACTORY at Lawndale Art Center in Houston Texas:

When: Friday 11 May, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. with artists' talks at 6:00 p.m.
Where: Lawndale Art Center, 4912 Main Street, Houston, Texas 77002

TrendFACTORY is a community-driven, multi-participatory installation. Artist, Leslie Mutchler, will be exploring issues related to hand(craft), the physicality of labor, and the repetition of memes in the virtual world through hand-manufactured objects. As the “factory” is a quickly disappearing hub for work within the country, Mutchler is interested in bringing a focus back to labor and our need for commonality through shared physical experiences. The artist will focus on the ways in which a controlled community, limited to specific materials, could participate in the construction and thus curation of objects, perhaps influencing and driving the installation (both real and virtual) and thus exposing the repetitive and tedious nature of trend.

Lawndale Art Center and Leslie Mutchler invite you to participate in the making of these “factory” assembled, chipboard objects on Wednesday, May 9, 2012, 10:00 a.m – 1:00 p.m, prior to the exhibition opening. Click here to learn more.
