Contemporary On-site presents COCO HUNDAY, an alternative exhibition space located in Tampa, Florida.
I AM VERY BUSY indeed–artists don’t always have the time to exhaustingly point out, belabor, and advocate against all the structural problems and practices of large cultural institutions. They are looking for care, partnership, and support.
Artist-run spaces, whether home, storefront, or online, are more critical now than ever for developing–without major market pressure and institutional politics–emergent poetics with their own critical economies.
Rather than responding to a theme, each of the participating artists in Coco Hunday Presents at Atlanta Contemporary are responding with a recent works that represent their studio practices.
Artists and audiences are looking for meaning now when ‘the future,’ as Bifo Berardi proposes ‘is over...its last vestiges were squandered in the schemes of a heavily futurized financial capitalism.’ Perhaps these spaces, not necessarily able to expand, or even last (and why should they?--they are often built on temporary surplus) are where real and meaningful economies can proliferate. --JL 2019
COCO HUNDAY (est. 2016) is an alternative exhibition space located in Tampa, Florida. The venue focuses on presenting solo shows of emerging and mid-career artists, with the recent exception of RULERS—an open, unjuried exhibition inviting any artist to submit original works of handmade rulers with mechanical, political, or poetic implications (co-organized by Jason Lazarus and Sue Havens). Coco Hunday is directed by artist Jason Lazarus.
