The Art Gym Receives RACC Grant

The Art Gym was awarded a $4,800 grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) for its upcoming exhibition, M.K. Guth: Recipe.

In fall 2012, The Art Gym will produce Recipe, the first major publication on M.K. Guth's work, and the first in a new series of ambitious exhibition/performance(s) that will travel nationally
in 2013-14.

The 70-plus page book/catalog will discuss the new work in the context of past projects, including Red Shoe Delivery Service (PICA TBA and the Melbourne International Arts Festival); Ties of Protection and Safe Keeping (Whitney Biennial); and This Fable is Intended for You (World Financial Center, NYC).

For the gallery, Guth is creating a series of performative dinners that build on Gordon Matta Clark's "food theater," Daniel Spoerri's Trap paintings, and the event scores of Yoko Ono's 1964 pioneering artist book, Grapefruit.
