For the past two years the Master of the Obstructed View has delighted and frustrated followers with pictures of things blocking the view of other things. This exhibition features, for the first time in a gallery context, samples of these lens-based, usually contrived mishaps.

PERIPATETIC is a roving alternative space on wheels, a mobile gallery designed to house small curated exhibits of every ilk. Though miniature in scale, at roughly 3’ x 5’ x 2’, and situated atop a custom-built cart for easy transport, the gallery is not technically a maquette of a larger structure. It is both a representation of a gallery- a scaled down facsimile that can’t be entered physically, and an actual cultural institution with a semi-regular schedule of exhibitions and related programming.
