Marginalia: Getting Out of the House

September 11 - November 16, 2008

This coast-to-coast correspondence project between Pam Hall (St. John’s, Nfld) and Margaret Dragu (Richmond, BC) is a collaboration investigating connection, community, sexuality, aging, and domestic life. MARGINALIA is a virtual, physical, and daily engagement with distance and intentional relation. Since February 2004, Hall/Dragu have made and exchanged over 4500 squares/carrés and daily emails occasionally meeting in a gallery to create an installation and performance. MARGINALIA: Getting Out of the House takes the form of two history-houses covered in the artists’ squares/carrés and a short “art-aktion” performance.

Curator: Nan Capogna
