Announcing a new show in a new space!
MEME & The Present Tense presents:
June 7-27, 2009
55 Norfolk Street
Cambridge, MA 02139
Accumulation (phase I) will provide an environment to witness the evolution of a space that has
been activated by accumulated creative action. Over the duration of this exhibition the 6 Boston-
based artists and curators of MEME will spontaneously create an evolving installation.
All evidence from these actions will remain in the space and each artist will be challenged with
how to interact with another’s remnants. Accumulation will challenge ideas about artist
collaboration while creating an innovative exhibition of performance art documentation.
Accumulation’s opening will be held on June 13th from 12-6pm. Because of the nature of this
exhibition, a closing, complete with a screening of video documentation of all occurrences in the
space will also be held on June 26th from 7-10pm.
Located in Central Square, Cambridge, MEME will provide space for ephemeral art to be
made and witnessed. A tireless schedule of exhibitions, screenings, residencies and workshops
will bring together local, national and international artists. MEME’s goal is to provide
support for ideas that typically have a difficult time finding a place in the world.
MEME’s debut will be the first installment of The Present Tense’s Accumulation.
Accumulation will be an evolving installation that will be continually transformed by the six
curators of MEME. These artists will create actions that add, remove, and work off of one
another’s presence and remnants. The life of this process will be on display from
June 7-June 27.
