Coverlands by Danielle Adair
Part of The Ups & Downs, an installation series curated by Mathew Timmons

Opening reception March 6th, 7:00pm
Closing reception March 7th, 7:00pm

Coverlands is a sculptural installation inspired by the artist’s recent journalistic embed with U.S. forces in Jalalabad. During the months of November and December 2008, Danielle followed women intelligence officers on two bases in eastern Afghanistan. The objects reference classified maps and woven blankets sold at the bazaar on base, and highlight the army’s effort to preserve U.S. national identities in a foreign environment. Danielle uses wax paper and thread to invoke dual qualities of delicacy and durability.

The Ups & Downs is an installation series curated by Mathew Timmons. The show goes up, the show goes down. Opening party on Friday night and closing party the next night, on Saturday. No time for exhibitions. Low impact, ephemeral and immersive art. People with lots of People. The market. It’s a party. Time for the underground. It’s a ball. It’s for The People. This has been made for you. Do I know you? The show must go on. Installed and De-installed. Up. Down. Now what? Now then…
