What did you buy today?
When artist and illustrator Kate Bingaman-Burt asked herself that question, the result was 2,922 drawings, made over the course of eight years. Books, gallery shows, and major media coverage ensued, all infused with her playful and startling take on brands and consumer objects. This fall, Kate’s new works along with eight years of “Obsessive Consumption” has engulfed the walls, windows, and sidewalks of Liquid Agency’s gallery space in Portland.
A natural fit.
Liquid Space has been a natural fit for Kate’s show, her work centers on the objects in our lives—The things we buy, the things we discard, and the community interaction that cycles of consumption can inspire. Encouraging dialogue through exhibitions and talks, Liquid Space is an experimental gallery series taking place at the agency’s headquarters in San Jose and at its Pearl District office in Portland. Chief Creative Officer Alfredo Muccino founded Liquid Space to push boundaries, spark conversation, and showcase innovation. The series shares the work of talented artists and multidisciplinary designers with Liquid’s employees, clients, and local communities, and collaborates with organizations such as the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art. Past shows have included work by Sabine Reckewell, Joshua Berger, Plazm, Nike Labs, Karim Rashin, Neils Romer, Ziba, and a collective of San Jose street artists.
All 2,922 drawings in one free catalog!
To honor the exhibition Liquid has published a printed catalog. If you come to the gallery, you can pick on up. If you are not in Portland we have also made the catalog available on SlideShare. Coincidentally, our friends at Buy Olympia just last week launched a site where you can purchase a print of every single drawing!
