Regina Rex: New Threads

Regina Rex: New Threads

Dodd Galleries

January - February 2014

Each member of the New York artist-run space, Regina Rex, was asked to answer the question, “Regina Rex is?” in three short bullet points. Above are some of their answers. Often hard to pin down, this collaborative project encourages consensus making—it revolves around a model of generative arguments where digression is just as formative as progression.  For this project the group was invited to curate a selection of their own work, a task they have never approached, having long ago agreed to focus on bolstering the work of artists they admired. What will exist in the gallery is an iteration of an ongoing curatorial process. It was decided that each member would bring whatever they wanted to the Regina Rex gallery in a month. At that time, works would be tweaked and rearranged, once again put under discussion until placed in the truck that would eventually arrive in Athens, GA. The title "New Threads" references the thread of emails that is one prominent manifestation of the ongoing back-and-forth that is Regina Rex.
