April 7-29, 2012
Soloway presents “Folio,” an exhibition by the group 2-UP. Over the past few years 2-UP has produced a series of poster publications. This will be the first group exhibition of the individual members’ work in a gallery space. The exhibition is structured in 2 parts: a free newspaper that disassembles into 7 double-sided posters, and corresponding works in the gallery.
2-UP was formed in February 2010 as a cross-disciplinary group of artists working in visual arts, curating and writing. For each edition, 2-UP pairs 2 members to produce a double-sided poster, packaged in sets of 2. All of 2-UP’s activities are entirely funded by its members.
2-UP is currently participating in the Millenium Magazines exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. In addition, a survey of posters “This is 2-UP,” is on view at the Bowery Poetry Club, curated by Sue Scott. 2-UP has also appeared in The Dependent Art Fair, Booooooth at NADA, and has hosted events at Callicoon Fine Arts, Greene Naftali, PPOW, A Public Space, Printed Matter and Silvershed among others.
Members of 2-UP participating in the exhibition are: Colleen Asper, Matthea Harvey, Christian Hawkey, Cathy Park Hong, Zerek Kempf, Benjamin Kress, Nathan Lee, Paul Legault, Jen Liu, Mores McWreath, Adam Shecter, Joe Winter, and Monika Zarzeczna.
