Curated by Alison Hearst and Erin Starr White

Artists: Mary Benedicto, Everything in Heaven is TV, David Horvitz, Fawn Krieger, Jason Simon, Virginia Yount, Chu Yun

Unable to physically enter the gallery space during the run of the exhibition, the viewer will experience a truncated view similar to a storefront window display. This type of viewing raises questions regarding the ubiquity of an often half-alert audience and speaks to the deeply ambivalent reality of consumption and commercial display.

A brief viewing of the storefront exhibition, "Everything Must Go," will take place from 7:30 - 8:00 p.m. on Friday, July 24th. Following this viewing, all who wish to can continue the celebration at The Ginger Man at 3716 Camp Bowie Blvd. Maps will be presented at the gallery.

In addition, Subtext Projects will host a mini-film festival of works related to the exhibition. This will be held at Fort Worth Contemporary Arts on Saturday, July 25th beginning at 2:30 p.m. A discussion with the curators will follow and all are invited to attend.
