PURPLE WINDOW invites you to take part in a public art initiative - making private spaces public through works of art. We are initiating a series of satellite exhibitions called Hello Neighbor by Purple Window. This initiative calls for participants to use domestic windows to showcase artwork to the outside world. We propose this as an ongoing curatorial project during the C-19 shutdowns world-wide.
We are calling artists, designers, curators, and those willing to share their windows to participate. One parameter of the exhibition is to outline the glass of each window with purple tape and exhibit artwork within the window pane. Installations will be up to the discretion of each participant.
The Purple Window co-op board will be taking the next several weeks to recruit volunteers. Please share our open call with anyone who might be interested in taking part in this satellite exhibition and movement to connect with our community during this time of isolation.
Long term plans include an exhibition in our Chicago gallery space incorporating installations, photography, and documentation footage of this project in its many forms. Additionally, we will make a catalog book composed of documentation images, artist statements, and personal narratives regarding this project and the effect C-19 has had on our community and day-to-day lives.
Purple Window exhibitions will take place across the United States in Illinois, Washington, West Virginia, Indiana, Iowa, California, Arizona, North Carolina, Ohio, Massachusetts and New York. Exhibitions will take place outside of the US in England, France, Italy, Brazil, Mexico, and Australia.
