Everyday Gallery’s new exhibition Potluck is about a celebration of the past, present and the future. Potluck resulted from an open invitation to the creators who over the past few years have shaped this gallery to take part in a show that was to be a celebration. A social activity which we hope would allow us to search for the limits of the art market and the financial entrapments that and shape it.
The principle of a potluck is simple: you organize a dinner for friends and everybody brings a dish. This can be whatever they can miss. It might be a main dish, or just an aside. It’s all good. It’s about sharing, not about the ultimate result.
Potluck is about a close-knit group of artist-friends to participate in a communal undertaking: sharing and gifting of unfinished pieces, untold stories, or unsold works.
The combination of these works will be Everyday Gallery’s potluck. Incl. works by Daan Gielis, Deborah Bowmann, Jacopo Pagin, Marria Pratts, Serban Ionescu, Bram Vanderbeke, Kristof Santy, Tom Volkaert, touche—touche, Stef Van Looveren, Thom Trojanowski… with scenography by Athos Burez.
Collectively and individually, the artists connected to Everyday Gallery have worked on issues such as sustainability, systemic contradiction, revaluation of wasted resources, respecting and communicating with ecological systems. In Potluck we share some of these works. And in doing so, allowing visitors to buy these works, we can gift the revenue to organizations that strive for systemic change and social justice in a very direct and practical way. For this reason, 30% of the revenue of this how will be donated to De Warmste Week and Poverello, two charities that work to better our world.
