Daily Solo Show

M^C^O, Milan (IT), 2016

Daily Solo Show is a 17 day long exhibition marathon, created at a two month residency programme The Wandering School in M^C^O, during Milan Art Week & Salone del Mobile.

Kitty Maria and Alban Karsten engaged in a continuous marathon of daily build-ups and nightly openings accompanied by an opening talk in M^C^O, Milan. Their perpetuated loop of daily openings introduced all participating artists of the residency with a solo show, lasting for the duration of one opening day.

Karsten and Maria invited fellow residents to participate and write a one-day solo show proposal. A shape-shifting exhibition space was created that was designed exclusively for the act of opening – hinged at every corner, the space could take on any desired shape, and with white walls of roller blinds that could be opened or closed partially or fully at any time.

Daily Solo Show aims to turn the art of exhibition making into day-to-day labor; as a protocol against lethargy and an attempt to investigate the function of performance during the process of exhaustion. It ran from April 1st till 17th, and was made possible by the following artists:
