Guerrilla Gallery: Tune In

When: Fri., Feb. 27, 6 p.m.-12 a.m. 2015
Price: Free
Since the 2008 economic downturn, art galleries have been forced to reconsider their strategies about how they present and market their works—and, even more practically, how they find space to do it. As in the restaurant industry, "pop-up" has become a buzzword in the art world for temporary artistic venues, and even has become a way of celebrating the transitory nature of these artistic experiences. Guerrilla Gallery is a new local pop-up artistic venture and, for the second of four quarterly shows, founder and curator Cecilia Anthony has opted to create an exhibit that challenges the very physicality of the traditional gallery setting, producing an exclusively online art show. The current iteration of online experience is becoming less about visiting websites and more about social media; the gallery is hosting Tune In on its Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages. The exhibit will include pieces by photographer Jamie Clyde—Salt Lake City-born but now living in New York City—whose work often comments on economic and social issues ("Visceral Motion No. 7" is pictured); literary work by Salt Lake City poet and raconteur Karl Geiger; and video performances by local choreographers Temria Airmet and Ashlee Vilos. The gallery will come to you—or at least to your preferred electronic device—so, in a sense, there's no "there" there. Without the sometimes intimidating or overwhelming gallery setting, spectators might be freer to embrace the sheer imagery of each work. Artists will upload their work 6-9 p.m., and the entire collection will be taken down at midnight. Twitter: @popupartutah,, Instagram: guerrilla_gallery (Brian Staker)
