This Valentine’s Day we invite you to join us in celebrating the two years of conversations reflected in artist Chloë Bass’ new e-book What is shared, what is offered by participating in the exercise of sharing and response that grounds this publication. Attendees are invited to submit an image with their RSVP that Bass will respond to at the event.
For exactly two years (Valentine’s Day 2017–19) Chloë Bass convened friends, colleagues, and fellow artists—Doug Ashford, Bill Dietz, Tiona Nekkia McClodden, Lisi Raskin and Jessica Lynne—for intimate, yet public discussions at ICI in New York, as part of her project What is shared, what is offered. Bass’ new e-book, which shares this title, celebrates these conversations. The e-book includes an introduction by Bass, transcripts of the discussions from each event, and a newly commissioned text by artist, composer and performer Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste reflecting on these events and the project’s structure.
What is shared, what is offered was part of The Book of Everyday Instruction, an eight-chapter project that investigated one-on-one interaction. In each of the event five events at ICI in New York, Chloë and her invited guest played a game. First, each selected a series of images that the other had not seen. At the event, images were revealed one by one and Chloë and her guest responded to one another’s selections.
This event follows the Teaching Art as Social Action: Pros, Cons, Observations, Experiences panel at the College Art Association (CAA) Conference, which Bass will co-chair. What is shared, what is offered is also an element of her larger three-year project The Book of Everyday Instruction, which was documented through her 2018 monograph of the same title.
