guilty of abstraction

guilty of abstraction was comprised a body of 19 works, painting, sculpture as well as installation, of which 16 were site-specific creations together with poetry and informative text, in form of a small booklet, as well as audio guides with music - each song in direct relation to each individual artwork.

You can access each individual work through the numbers in the menu on the left side of this screen and can read the poem or text, and will be able to hear the song relating to each work (allow audio a few seconds to load / start automatically - ensure your device's volume is on).
The entire Show was conceived as one large installation and is presented on this website in the exact same order as it was shown in the exhibition.

Space One Eleven is a non-profit gallery and a member of the Andy Warhol Initiative for the Visual Arts. SOE is located in downtown Birmingham, Alabama and is one of the very few galleries in the South having constant support as well as regular event-specific funding (grants) from the New York-based Andy Warhol Foundation.
