Hasty Happenings

Hasty Happenings is a one night only open participation exhibition that features artworks made in a matter of moments, hurried objects that were created with little care for perfect presentation. Everyone is welcome to participate, as long as it's with an artwork they make between learning of the show and the opening on Thursday, April 19.

Each piece in the exhibition is a snapshot of the momentary mental and emotional state assumed at the time of creation—tapping into the pleasure of completion and reverential observance of the tossed off.

Hasty Happenings is conceived of proposed and organized by Adrien Guadagnino with the support of Co-Prosperity Programming Council (CoProProCo) member Alex Chitty.
