This Saturday, May 1, Château Shatto opens Ensemble, an exhibition that is formed around the bonds and curiosities shared between galleries, without thematizing these relations. Conversation and cooperation among galleries often functions as a kind of collagen, an invisible and binding substance that ultimately confers a more resilient form. 

In a milieu that continues to be shaped by slipperiness and temperamental restrictions, a space in Château Shatto’s exhibition program quickly arose at the beginning of May. Rather than compensating with a hastily-conceived exhibition, we will use the afforded time and space to enact a gesture of exchange with treasured colleagues, having extended invitations to a handful of galleries and artist run-spaces to suggest artists and artworks to compose an exhibition. It’s a simple re-wiring of the development of an exhibition: a procuring idea isn’t first conceived and then materially expressed through an arrangement of works; rather, the exhibition materializes then we can observe any chemistries and dissonances that might arise. Artworks find themselves alongside each other, not by a relational conceit, but by organizing structures beyond themselves.

With the contributions and cooperation from Carlos/Ishikawa, Company Gallery, Coastal Signs, Miguel Abreu Gallery, DM Office, Apartment 13 and New Low
