Consequences, until December 12 at Fondazione Giuliani, Rome, is an exhibition organized by Jay Heikes with contributions from Felix Culpa, Jessica Jackson Hutchins, Ari Marcopoulos, Josiah McElheny, Todd Norsten, Conny Purtill, Justin Schlepp, Gedi Sibony, Michael Stickrod, The Unknown Artist and the “ghost” of Lee Lozano. “Consequences is an attempt to keep a collaborative artistic pulse going”, Jay Heikes explains. Drawing inspiration from Conny Purtill’s Grounds, collaborative works originating from a “ground” for another artist to receive and work on top of, as well as from Lee Lozano’s Dropout Piece, defined by Heikes as “a dare or proposition to a generation of artists that could regain control of their actions, or at least die trying”, the exhibition reflects on collaboration as artistic practice. Among the works on show are Heikes’ Frog Prints (2008) and The Family Tree (2003), Sibony’s Fountain Feet (2015), Norsten’s How to Compromise (2015), Schlepp’s L’altro è anche un fuggiasco (2015) and Jackson Hutchins’ Painted with Starts (2015).
