CommaRoom, Vol. 3: I’m Never Coming Home

by Comma

We spend 12 – 18 months on each CommaBox volume collaborating with participating artists. As an extension of this rich process we like to showcase works from their individual practices. CommaRoom takes the miniature boxed exhibition and amplifies it into a full-scale, architectural context. In Shedspace, the collaborators on Volume 3: I’m Never Coming Home: Barbara Weissberger, Eleanor Aldrich, Kelly Hendrickson, Erin Bellieu, Judy Rushin, and Carolyn Henne contribute current works from their individual practices. We design the exhibition to act as a different point of entry into the Comma experiment. Rather than presenting the artists’ and writer’s work in a typical group exhibition format, we create unique sculptural displays that put the artists’ works in direct conversation with one another. This highly mediated way of arranging artwork maintains the distinct voice of each artist within the framework of Comma’s creative vision.
