Opening: Friday, March 20, 2009 at 6:00pm
Normal Projects is pleased to present works by Luke Dowd and Lydia Moyer. Emblematic of the small viewing space and intimate display of artworks, this exhibition will display only one work from each artist.
Researching landscapes, in environmental and social contextual histories, Lydia Moyer has created video work describing the visceral American landscape. Mountain Loop (remix) was made as response to industrial processes. Moyer is head of New Media at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville and a recent fellow of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Professional Fellowship Program. Her work has been screened in Hong Kong, Romania, Iceland, and Australia.
Luke Dowd’s recent work sharpens the impression of his subject matter as a diamond is cut to lead light to the heart of the stone. Dowd stipulates, it is just the “formation of the lines of gems as an organising principle for abstract collages using watercolor and spray paint.”
In an early project, Did dinosaurs have rainbows too and if so could they see them?, Dowd gestured toward evolution, design and the subjectivity of value. Recent exhibitions include Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, New York; Galerie Jacky Strenz, Frankfurt; HOTEL, London. Dowd will be having a solo exhibition at Tony Wight Gallery, Chicago in April 2009. He lives and works in London.
Normal Projects is an independent apartment gallery exhibiting work on paper and video by emerging and established contemporary artists. This exhibition will be on view from March 20th through April 18th, 2009 by appointment only. Finnisage with artist, Luke Dowd, is April 18th from 2-4p. For further information, please email Emily Schroeder at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 917 312-8889.

Happy Collaborationists Magazine is now part of the Library of Congress Rare & Special Book Collection
The Chicago based Happy Collaborationist Magazine was founded by Hadley Vogel, Anna Trier & Hannah Ronver in 2008. Hadley has opened her apartment for art exhibitions. Dain and I made BoxxShow there with their wonderful help.

MWNM is pleased to announce the opening of 93 DAYS. 93 days is the span of time partners Karen Archey and Alice Wells were given to transform the storefront of 17 Orchard into an alternative exhibition space. The conditions that made this project possible are elucidated through an ongoing, self reflexive archive. The archive is an encompassing installation that serves to question the relevance of the increasingly popular alternative exhibition space and the problematic, constructed identity of the young artist and art professional. Other collaborators include Jon Rafman, William Bryan Purcell, Tim Ridlen and Bret Schneider.
The conclusion of MWNM is contingent upon the lease of its storefront, elucidating the relationship MWNM bears to the economy and real estate market, as well as personal variables that determine its longevity. 93 DAYS materialized as a solution to the obstacle of maintaining an exhibition space that is given an unpredictable duration. The archive will open Sunday, February 8th from 6 – 9, and run through March 1st with the possibility of extension.
MWNM is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. It is generously supported by Cardinal Investments.
