The End is Nigh

Procrastinators of America, UNITE! Your last chance to see several pieces is upon you!

First of all, you’ll want to get yourselves to Pioneer Square for the culmination of Toshi Asai‘s installation at the Tashiro Kaplan building. Toshi has been sitting in that cavernous space for three months, obsessively drawing on well over 100 feet of gigantic paper scrolls, which have been installed trailing away from the windows into the recesses of the space. It’s lovely work, make sure to see it (and check Perri Lynch‘s new Storefronts work at the other end of the block).

Then hie thee over to Chinatown, for the end of the IDEA Odyssey era. IDEA Odyssey, one of the longest-running temporary Storefronts projects to date, has just celebrated a full year of programming on South Jackson Street, and will be ending with their current exhibit, ONE, a group show. It’s been a beautiful project, they’ve supported some incredible artists and presented some stunning shows. Congratulations to all.

Let’s also not forget our sister program Storefronts Auburn!

It’s your last chance to get yourself in front of Josie Elizabeth Davis‘ paper dresses, straight from the PLOP! Festival in Buenos Aires. Stunning, delicate work, and up through the end of this weekend.

Just down Main Street from Josie’s work, please also check out Julia Haack‘s gigantic installation of new works, a poppy, celebratory, exciting series of painted wood assemblies, wrapping the corner of Main and Division Streets.

Okay! Now you may return to your previously schedule procrastination. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

And please do stay tuned to see the whole suite of new works that’ll be showing up this summer and fall to replace these installations!
