B. Ingrid Olson: Cast of Mind
20 January–20 December
i8 Grandi is pleased to announce Cast of Mind, a year-long exhibition by B. Ingrid Olson. The artist’s show opens 20 January, 2023 and will be on view until 20 December 2023. Spanning far longer than traditional museum or gallery shows, i8 Grandi represents a new model for exhibitions. The programming focuses on concepts of space and time, and the presentations will evolve while on view. The sustained duration of the annual format allows artists to consider how time affects their work, and the fluidity encourages audiences to revisit the changing installations.
“Cast of mind” is a phrase describing the way that a person might perceive something due to a certain disposition, ingrained beliefs, or even as a more temporary mood or outlook. While the expression succinctly encapsulates the idea of subjective perception, its component words might also poetically suggest making a permanent record of the act of thinking. Forming a hard copy out of something as slippery as thought is a fitting lens through which to view an exhibition that by its very invitation must be subject to change. How might cognition, decision-making, memory, or instinct be evidenced?
