My artist initiative project, Eugene Contemporary Art, put on a pop-up show in my design studio last night. ECA hasn't done anything over the last couple years, while I was getting Artsdigital.co off the ground. But as soon as I moved into the studio space, I knew I wanted to try to do a couple exhibitions. ECA used to be a full blown non-profit and residency program. Due to funds and time, I put it into hibernation mode. This was my first attempt at getting it off the ground again, but with a much simpler premise - show work when I can, and operate with a mentality of having no resources whatsoever. It's kind of freeing actually.
Putting on a show is a lot of work, and I didn't have a lot of time to curate something complex. Asking your friends if they want to show ephemera from around their studio is pretty easy. Everyone has loads of it. It was really fun. The turnout was great. I'm going to do another in October.
