CHEAP ART AMERICA: P’s & Q’s October 15 – November 13, 2011 MacGregor Douglas Harp & Victor Hu


Or… what if we write out a bunch of words and sentiments from our list and use them in a “statement of purpose” visioning session? We can cross some of them out and make it look kind of messy and punkish. Then, put ‘Ps & Qs’ on top in a nice font…

ambivalent, but not apathetic pastiche plus thrift snarky smark and the spunky bunch if cartoons had nightmares, catalyzing contradiction not comedy, but not above the one-liner lawnchair pontificators anything is possible, get back to work.

It could be nice to do something like this for the press release as well. Or why not just use this document? Maybe in doing that, we can avoid committing to some lofty mission statement that rambles on about all of the things that we are “exploring”. Besides, the struggle to define ourselves has really become one of our defining characteristics. And institutions totally dig that type of self-reflexive dialog. Yeah, let’s just say that this is the press release.


Cheap Art America is MacGregor Douglas Harp and Victor Hu. P’s & Q’s is the fourth in a series of group exhibitions dedicated to providing self-publishing artists, who generally share their work through zines and other printed matter, with a platform for exhibition, experimentation and exploration outside of the printed format. Curated by Aimee Lusty.
