952 Mariposa. September 8–10, 2017

952 Mariposa

GEORGIA is a new, pop-up art space located in the alley behind 952 Mariposa Street in Denver’s La Alma neighborhood. Housed in Sommer Browning’s one-and-a-quarter car garage, GEORGIA aims to blur space and purpose.

Coinciding with the founding of GEORGIA, Counterpath (7935 East 14th Ave. in Denver) is excited to host 952 Mariposa, an exhibit of the gallery’s previous contents. Running parallel to GEORGIA’s first show—Future Bodies, a collection of Joshua Ware’s large-scale collages—on display at Counterpath will be the actual contents (boxes of books, broken air conditioners, cobwebbed exercise equipment, a car) of Browning’s garage before it was reconfigured. The show at Counterpath, a gallery in the East Colfax neighborhood that was itself formerly a garage, works to subvert notions of intention, found art, and privacy, exploring a feedback loop between a DIY accumulation of aesthetic value and the supposed abrogation of that value in a slightly more formalized gallery setting.

Opening receptions (livestreamed) at both venues will take place Friday, September 8, 2017, 6-11pm. The Counterpath reception will feature the Flinchum/Herring Duo on flute and guitar. Click here for other events at GEORGIA (including an opening-reception performance by Path of Totality).

Both exhibits are on view through Sunday, September 10, 2017, and free and open to the public. RSVP to the Counterpath event. RSVP to the event at GEORGIA.

(This coming Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 4, at about 9 a.m., Tim Roberts of Counterpath will rent a U-Haul to move everything from one garage to the other. If you can help with the move, please write to counterpath@counterpathpress.org.)
