Join the Uppur Bunk in Wonder Valley to see Spectacular Subdivision.
Uppur Bunk member Patrick Melroy has been curated into the project by Monte Vista Project’s Jay Lizo. So if you find yourself in need of some desert time come see the work on April 4, 5, & 6.
High Desert Test Sites and Monte Vista Projects present Spectacular Subdivision, a group project curated by Jay Lizo. This three-day exhibition invites artists to reflect on questions of housing and real estate in the aftermath of the 2008 housing market crisis. What does housing mean to artists in relation to their practice? How has the mortgage meltdown affected artists? How have forms of domesticity and shelter shaped artists’ practices?

Spectacular Subdivision: High Desert Test Sites
Jack Aldrich and Patrick Melroy braved the crush of shoppers at the busiest shopping plaza in the county. The two executed a project in and around the shopping center for one hour at the height of the shopping frenzy.
We met on the corner of De La Guerra & State
The Uppur Bunk had six artists in motion at the third Onesie. Making art for one hour in a one block radius. Raymond Douglas captured some of the results with his medium format camera.
Artists: Rebecca Miles, Jake Himovitz & Dad Roger, Raymond Douglas, Jack Aldrich, Patrick Melroy.
The Second Onesie will be on Friday.
The Uppur Bunk produced a Onesie on Thursday, August 8th, 2013. We had eight artists working for one hour within a one square block radius. The projects were dynamic and astute. We captured some of the event with an Olympus 35 mm supplied by bunk regular Nick Cook. Any other documentation or questions or notes or warm thoughts can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Named by collaborator Nick Cook, the Onesie is a one night art making event. Bring your gear, come make art with us. We will fan out, and create art in the world. We will gather after an hour and take a walking tour and create a map.
The theme is lonely crowd. Draw, take photos, make movements, or just come to see the others do it. We will be hoping to see you.
