Between Us: Variance Invariance Project by Judy Rushin & treats paintings as things in motion rather than inert artifacts. With a focus on the vernacular of quick-assembly housing and furniture, Rushin created a system in which artworks are assembled, dismantled and shipped in small boxes. By sharing her work with individuals and in galleries and museums with their shipping boxes, texts and project documentation, her work is an experiment in collaborative design, alternative platforms for artistic engagement and affirms the gallery’s role as a site for social discourse.
