The Alexandria Community Art Library (ACAL) was created by Roman Petruniak. In celebration of the Torpedo Factory Art Center’s 40th Anniversary, Chicago-based artist Sara Black and the art duo Hideous Beast transformed the Target Gallery into a temporary community library. Constructed from locally sourced building materials, this community space featured a diverse array of public programming. While on the one hand serving to archive and share TFAC’s rich history as a creative place, the exhibition also questions newly emerging modes of both art making and arts funding.
I was privileged to serve as an assistant in the project as well as participate as an exhibiting artist in the ACAL with my project Say Goodbye.
