Concerted Compassionism presents the work of three artists who are addressing the problem of
homelessness. Rather than merely raising the issue, these artists are making an attempt to assist
homeless people through direct action and service.
Bradley McCallum presents documentation and examples of on-site shelters and mobile carts he has created
for homeless people in various cities; Michael Rakowitz exhibits portable beds for use on the sidewalk,
designed to inflate with the hot air expelled from building vents; Christoph Buchel transforms the gallery into
a Homeless Depot, a parody of one-stop-shops that offers merchandise for the homeless, including
models for shelters, money-earning aids, and objects for entertainment.
White Rooms (solo exhibitions for artists unaffiliated with a New York gallery):
Miranda Maher - Maher presents selections form three different works-on-paper series: Constellations, which
charts stellar forms on the sidewalks of New York City; Verso/Recto condensing entire book texts into a single
image; and Mark and Name: Mother and Father exploring physical and emotional genealogy.
Aida Ruilova - short videos loosely imitating the style of music videos present odd characters and fantastical
scenarios with quick takes and unusual vocal soundtracks.
