September 5–October 16, 2014


Coral Brush Node is an exhibition taking place in five separate parts, each part the duration of seven days in which work is screened twenty-four hours a day. The gallery remains open during regular hours, and the work can be viewed from the street the remaining hours. Coral Brush Node is a nonsensical title, derived from placing a one-word descriptor of each participating artist’s practice into the Google search engine.
