Give & Get / Have & Take is an exhibition that explores the
relationships between production and the multiple, the
audience and the consumer. The exhibition will take the form of two parallel events, one in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S. and the other in Edinburgh, Scotland, U.K. Over the course of two nights, the shows will present works by twenty emerging artists. Each work will exist in a limited number of editions and will be available for the audience to take away during the event.

I have work in this show that opens this friday (4th) at Whitespace Gallery, Edinburgh

Sex, lists and footnotes are a good summarisation of J. D. Winslow’s short story, ‘Hot Date with Cute Girl’. Opening with the hard hitting ‘I’m watching a kids’ sci-fi program with my dick in a peanut butter jar’, Winslow refuses to pull punches. As the narrative worms it way through the events that occur pre-dick damage we grow accustomed to the extremely confident, anal, and arguably narcissistic narrator, whose capitalisation of ‘Serious’ and ‘Committed’, insertion of untranslated Polish, bold use of lists and copious footnotes combine to form a style that dances between the intellectual, experimental and hipster/bohemianism. ‘Hot Date with a Cute Girl’ is rich in style but light in plot – though perhaps this is the point. If Winslow was seeking to represent the life of Millennial metrosexuals then he’s been remarkably successful; as the flat finale mirrors the shallowness of the self-centred narrator – though it leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

Cultural Hypervigilance: A heightened scanning coupled with a surface knowledge of cultural flows leading to a sense of panic or hopelessness. In sharp contrast to the “productive ignorance” that Jörg Heiser proposes as central to the success of the avant gardes. Symptoms of cultural hypervigilance include googling ideas for art works in order to see if anyone has done that idea before.
