Leah C. Dixon and Patrick Servedio took the plunge March 30 as the first of three groups to curate a show at Coagula Curatorial. Boldly diving into Mat Gleason’s storage, Leah and Patrick compiled a cohesive and well attended show. Next week Cindy Schwarzstein (full disclosure, CARTWHEEL’s publisher) and artist Gina Mead Howie put their curatorial skills to work with their show “Yes” while on April 13th, artist Wini Brewer and (full disclosure, me) Lisa Derrick go at it with “13•4•13”
Here’s the rub: All of us could only use what Mat had on hand. We could not pull from our own collections, ask our friends to throw us that piece we love that hasn’t been shown yet, or work off of our lists of artists we know. Mat will be curating a show on April 20 with all the artists he has in his Pandora’s box of of an office.
Kudos to Leah and Patrick!
