In February 2011, AD Projects traveled to the Central Utah Art Center in Ephraim, Utah, to curate CAMERA VIVANT. Salt Lake City Weekly, in a positive review, called it “one of the more challenging exhibitions in a Utah institution. Ever.”
We are proud to have been a part of CUAC’s excellent programming, and we wish to raise awareness about its imminent eviction from Ephraim’s historic granary.

AD Projects is pleased to announce the one-day exhibition of CHROMATIC HI-FIVE!, a public fabric installation by Amanda Browder. The installation of CHROMATIC HI-FIVE! is the first in a series of events produced in conjunction with AD Projects’ exhibition Spectrum Vision, currently on view at Reverse Space in Williamsburg. Browder’s sculpture will cover a 17-foot U-Haul truck with fabric donated by people in greater New York City and Toronto. The piece was originally constructed for the Nuit Blanche Public Art Festival/LEITMOTIF, curated by Stuart Keeler, in Toronto, Canada in 2010. CHROMATIC HI-FIVE!, will make its Williamsburg debut in front of Reverse Space on June 17th as a complement to Browder’s wall installation Synesthesia: Lightning + Drips in Spectrum Vision, and will be open for viewing all day.
Spectrum Vision at Reverse Space will be open from 3 – 9pm on Sunday, June 17th. The evening will also include a sound performance by Brooklyn-based electronic collective HEAVYPET (feat. Crinkles). HEAVYPET will perform an experimental set from 6 – 9 pm.
Reverse Space is a hub for the Northside Festival; please check here for details about the festival and other arts events happening in the neighborhood: http://www.northsidefestival.com/art

“Spectrum Vision” // A Group Exhibition by AD Projects at Reverse Art Space

New York based curatorial collaborative AD Projects hosted a group exhibition entitledSpectrum Vision this Sunday at Reverse Art Space in Williamsburg. Notable standouts of the show were Alex Yudzon, Jeffrey Beebe, and artist & sculptor Alex Arcadia.
Yudzon’s Atlas Cloud series, mixed media over pages of a 1937 atlas uses lines of demarcation as composition and detail, exploring boundaries of nations and the relevance of symbols that divide form and distance.
“I am incredibly inspired by the concept of travel,” Said Yudzon. “Some of these pieces represent, in broad strokes, what the landscape might look like in the area the map represents, allowing the viewer to fill the finer details with their own imagination.”
Jeffrey Beebe shows a huge cast of characters in The Copper Palanquin, part of a larger series entitled “Adventures in Refractoria.” The characters are numerous and delicately conceived — residents of an imaginary world which parallels Beebe’s own history.

As a little preview for what’s to come tomorrow evening, here is Scott Valentine prepping in the AD Projects space for his performance tomorrow evening at 8:30 pm. Do I have your attention?
AD Projects is setting up a temporary home at 200 Avenue A with the exhibition Reliquary/SUPERDARK. Reliquary will be an evolving display of artifacts and SUPERDARK is an evening performance series over the coming weeks. Every few days, objects by one artist will be displayed on a pedestal in the vacant storefront of 200 Avenue A, the former location of Superdive. The relics displayed allude to such varied topics as the personal history of the artist, the contemporary mania for collecting celebrity memorabilia, and utopian visions of the future.
The performance series SUPERDARK complements the transformation of Superdive into a reliquary for contemporary artifacts, giving artists the opportunity to step into the spotlight and position themselves as modern-day idols, dictating and commenting on contemporary culture.
Our inaugural exhibition at 200 Avenue A will feature the works of Wonderpuss Octopus. We will hold a soft opening on Sunday, May 8th, with the official event Wednesday, May 11th.
Our hours will be Saturday & Sunday, 12 – 6 pm, and weeknights 7:30 – 10 pm. Stay tuned for details about Friday night performances, and feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
