Make Believe

Sam Schonzeit and Vianney Fivel

06/24/2016 - 07/23/2016

In an effort to explore alternative ways to support artists, MASS announces its second annual art award and exhibition—MASS Solo Cup. Selected through a national open call, applications were reviewed by MASS collective members with the chosen artist/s awarded the opportunity to mount a solo show in our 1500 sq. ft. gallery, plus a monetary honorarium of $1,000 to assist in its realization.

MASS is proud to present our 2016 Solo Cup awardees, Marfa, TX based Sam Schonzeit and Geneva, Switzerland based Vianney Fivel.  Schonzeit and Fivel will collaborate on Make Believe, an evolving installation comprised of fountains, haircuts, a gallery within the gallery, a moving business, life drawing sessions, movie screenings, musical performances, rotary plate digitization of 3d objects, and more.

The public is invited to help participate in Make Believe and the opening on June 24th will serve as an exhibition as well as a chance to meet the artists and learn how to participate if you’re interested. The ways in which Schonzeit and Fivel plan on integrating the community into Make Believe are described in their menu:
