Jun 9–Jul 20, 2019
Press Release (PDF)
“Space is always coded, racialized, gendered, but in the hotel lobby everyone, so long as they are a paying customer, is treated the same. The rules are made clear, you follow the signs. It is democratizing to erase your identity and forfeit your community in the space.”
-Matthew Cooper on Alika Cooper + Eric Wesley's Wabi Sabi Lobby
For the summer of 2019 Alika Cooper + Eric Wesley created a "Lobby" entrance for our Frogtown exhibition, the second iteration of their collaborative project with Private Places, Portland.
