THE LEMON CAR LOT                                   


































                       
Curated by Kirslyn Schell-Smith and Sky Maggiore, Dué Duo features artists engaging with duality as a conceptual framework. Through a wide range of processes and understandings, Dué Duo forms a new community lens to consider pairs, doubles, mirrors, and covers.

The resulting collection of works function in harmony, building a language that speaks to the self, the other, life, death, recognition, disillusion, past, present, and many other forms of the duo.

Is Dué Duo wet? Is it dry? How does it look in a mirror, or a puddle, or if we try to see it through a concrete slab? Do all things look the same covered up? Does a song written in 1982 reflect differently now? Do our mouths round the curve of an “R” in new ways? What is mine? Yours? Does mine? Does yours? How: over time? Or under it?

The work featured in this show spans photography, collage, video, music, sound, GIFs, writing, storytelling, DJing, rendering, painting, sculpture, and performance.

Haley Maiden, Michael Chinworth, DuoDuo, Separ8tor, Nate Garner, Jack Hubbell Rosene, Anna Guyton, Frances Bukovsky, Megan Joubert, Jennifer Bastian, Charlotte Woolf, Eddy Leonel Aldana, Kyra Skye, Jamie Ho, LZ Maday, Alexa Economos.
