Opening Day - Discipline

Paloma Checa-Gismero will be inhabiting the Mauve? cubicle for the next two weeks, as she settles in to her new temporary home as Mauve?'s resident artist. She'll be creating work related to her reflections on what an office space is, culminating in a publication and the exhibition that will consume the following two weeks of the Mauve? month.

About the show:

During a four week-long residence at Mauve?, Paloma Checa-Gismero engages in an inquiry on the office space as a place where the body, the individual, and labor relate to each other in specific ways. As a result of the time spent at Mauve?, she will craft a publication containing materials related to her reflections on what an office space is.
Office Schedule: Mondays & Thursdays, 10:30 am - 1:30 pm.
