Six Degrees

An exhibition that created itself through connectivity

With the proliferation of social networking and technology-based communication, making real connections becomes more important than ever. Each artist in this exhibition has selected one other artist who lives and works in a different community, forming a network of local art communities and creating personal and global connections among artists. This effort makes the local more than just local and infuses each region with energy from around the country. Like a chain letter, this process is expansive and like an exquisite corpse, the results are
surprising and unexpected. Appropriately for a show about drawing connections, the show takes the drawn line as its subject and features artists from all over the country. The exhibition, in a sense, "created itself" by means of connectivity.
