EXHIBITION DATES: February 6 – March 15, 2015
Achieve something. Do well. Be somebody. For the first show at Wave Pool, we’re exhibiting work that straddles the line between self-empowerment and humor. Most Likely To Succeed embraces overwhelming positivity, giving us all a well-needed boost during the coldest and shortest month of the year. Curated by Calcagno Cullen, the show includes works by Alicia Escott, Kristin Farr, Chase Melendez, Susan O’Malley, Jessica Smith, and Christine Wong Yap.
After the long journey of assembling Wave Pool and seeing the first show to fruition, it seems only appropriate to celebrate this achievement with some tongue in cheek positivity. The works in this show remind us all of our human desire to be better and to achieve more while acknowledging the improbability of such endeavors.
Come to receive a hug from one of Kristin Farr’s Hug Chairs, hear words of endearment from Alicia Escott intended for extinct species, or receive practical advice for advancing your art career through Jessica Smith’s Make Great Art video installation. All of the works will brighten your mood and make you feel better about having to deal with 6 more weeks of winter.
In tandem with Most Likely To Succeed, Wave Pool will host a Wave Pool Pep Talks event for February 21 from 4-6pm. The performance event will include local artists, public speakers, and all around positive personalities to give short motivational speeches. Come get pumped up and leave a more inspired person!
