For most ambitious, hardworking artists, it can feel like a 24-hour-a-day job. The multi-disciplinary alternative space CS13 (1420 Main St., Over-the-Rhine) is highlighting this “go, go, go” spirit of the art world in the upcoming exhibition The Today Show. Nine artists have been invited to use the space as a studio, gallery, printing press and office space for a 24-hour period, starting at 5 p.m.
Friday and culminating in a reception from 5-7 p.m. Saturday. Art will be made on the spot, the exhibition will be designed and then the artists will document and write about their own work, a microcosm of the art world in a one-day project. Actually, this concept is refurbished from a similar exhibition of the same name mounted some years ago at the now defunct Murmur space that was operated by many of the folks that maintain CS13. They’ve taken what they learned from that experience and are trying it again. The participating artists include Sarah Blyth-Stephens, Greg Clem, Frank Hibrandt, John Knight, John Sloan, Sheida Soleimani, Jordan Tate, Avril Thurman and Loraine Wible.
