hot potato pass it on

August 3, 2010 (All day)

Dear Friends,
47 is 17 months old!

For our Sweet 16 we celebrated Dennis Lin’s no. 1-60, and for our 17th we’re
taking a new direction!

Since the garage doors rolled up in April 2009, 47 has been used as an alternative
exhibition space for large-scale sculptural and installation-based works. 47 was
initiated not only to challenge artists, allowing it to affect their practices, but also
to question the relationships that revolve around art. The accessible space
empowers the viewer and provokes clever intellect and emotion.

At 47 art could breathe without pretence and artists could exhibit without costs.
Month to month 47 has changed, successfully evolving with the work. Your
support has been paramount throughout this process.

For our 17 month anniversary and onwards 47 will become the home of both
Jaclyn Quaresma and Dennis Lin’s studio practices. This change is not something
to morn but something to celebrate. We’re not going anywhere. We’ll still be 47
Milky Way, but everyone grows up, and now it’s our turn.

Care to take our place? Hot potato pass it on.
