Curated by Chris Larson and Maria Cristina Tavera, Thirty Three Views Plus Two was an exhibition of artworks reflecting the vision, energy, and talent of 33 Twin Cities based women and non-binary contemporary artists. On view at the old Swedish Bank Building, as well as in four other locations across Payne Avenue, the exhibit was organized as external programming of the Second Shift Studio Space.
The exhibition was open to the public from April 26-28, 2019. Work by thirty artists occupied the entire third floor (5000 sq ft) of the vacant Swedish Bank Building at 965 Payne Avenue, Saint Paul.
I showcased Alphabet of Minneapolis, a conceptual alphabet based on vernacular signs found throughout city. The final result was 26 framed posters of each letter of phe alphabet. View more of this project here.
