Free and open to the public
SP Weather Station will host a Special Preview for the 2011 edition of SP Weather Reports, presenting new works and works-in-progress by its most recent group of collaborating artists. The public is welcome to join past and current artist-participants for a reception and informal conversation about this ongoing publication series. Portfolios from all years will be for sale (including 2011 pre-orders) and refreshments will be served.
Now in its fifth year, SP Weather Reports is a collated portfolio published annually by the artist-collaborative SP Weather Station. Each year, twelve artists (or artist groups), one per month, are invited to ‘report’ on the weather data taken by the SPWS rooftop station, installed on the roof of Flux Factory in Long Island City. This open-ended assignment may be interpreted strictly or loosely; past artists have created prints, booklets, drawings, audio files, photos and video.
The 2011 SP Weather Reports feature works by: (January) Emcee C.M.; (February) Glen Einbinder; (March) Rafael Hidalgo Múgica; (April) Naomi Miller; (May) Chad Stayrook; (June) Michelle Rosenberg and Howard Huang; (July) Hope Ginsburg; (August) eteam; (September) Paul Kennedy; (October) Adrienne Garbini; (November) Travis LeRoy Southworth; (December) Rick Myers.
