During the summer of 2011 Current Space presented CART, an exhibition that transformed part of the gallery space into a fully-functioning mini-market which featured affordably-priced works of art made by fine artists from all around the world. BINGO serves as an extension of the philosophy behind CART, namely that art is an essential part of everyday life and that all people, regardless of income or social status, should be able to afford to purchase fine art.
For BINGO, Current Space will be transformed into a post-modern bingo hall. We will silkscreen unique bingo card designs, which will be designed by different artists, and everyone who attends the exhibition and pays the entry fee will receive the bingo card design of their choice. Bingo will be played, of course, so additional cards (i.e. artwork) may be purchased to increase one’s chances of winning. Prizes will consist of deals/freebies from local businesses and musicians. Like the bingo that our grandparents play, BINGO will include a caller, prizes, and time to socialize, but unlike our elders’ bingo, ours will include music, sound effects, and strobe lights.
