Blasts from the Pasts

Ryan Furtado shoots incredible photos. Because he’s gonzo. I was lucky to know this dude at YO! Magazine, ages ago. Go see ’em, and you will feel lucky to see a little of what this guy’s seen.

Zachary Royer Scholz’s site-specific installation directly engages the physicality of the Lab’s main gallery space. Deviating from the typical installation-exhibition-deinstallation cycle, Scholz’s show opens shortly after he arrives in the space and closes just as the work reaches completion. Allowing the site to act as a collaborator, the artist will produce objects and situations using the Lab’s unique architecture and objects found there as a starting point. The audience can view the work in a static state when the artist is absent or come while he is there and witness the work in a state of flux. Viewers are encouraged to visit and revisit the space as this collaboration evolves.
