Gallery 210: Friday, 28 October 2011

RECEPTION FOR TASK EXHIBITION: October 28, 2011 5:30PM to 7:30 PM

TASK, a self-generating, improvisational art-making event developed by artist Oliver Herring will be held at Gallery 210 on the campus of the University of Missouri-St. Louis on October 21. Herring is an internationally known experimental artist based in Brooklyn New York. His works include knitting Mylar, participatory performances, styrofoam photo sculpture, video, and TASK.

TASK is an improvisational event with a simple structure and very few rules. It's open-ended, participatory structure creates almost unlimited opportunities for a group of people to interact with one another and their environment. It is a platform for people to express and test their own ideas in an environment without a focus on failure or success or any preconceptions of what can or should be done with an idea or material.

Oliver Herring has curated an exhibition from the objects created by the October 21 TASK Party at Gallery 210. He will incorporate examples of his own work as well as memorabilia from past TASK Parties. The artist will give a gallery talk at 6:15PM.

Public parking for Gallery 210 is available at the South Millennium Parking Garage on the east side of East Drive on the UM-St. Louis Campus. Handicapped parking is available behind Gallery 210. Hours: Tuesday-Saturday: 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Gallery 210 is on the University of Missouri-St. Louis at 44 East Drive, TCC between the North UM-St. Louis Metro Station and the Touhill Performing Arts Center
