This exhibition features the artworks of ten contemporary artist couples with ties to South Dakota. Each of the twenty artists was asked to submit a work of their own representing their solo practice. Each couple was also challenged to create a new collaborative work together for the show. Some of the artists have collaborated with their partners in the past. For others, this merging of practices represents a new adventure and challenge in art-making.

The jury is in. The catalogue is in production. Opening August 10. 2013. Jurors Justin Gibbens, artist and PUNCH Gallery founding member; and Linda Tesner, Director of the Ronna and Eric Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art, Lewis & Clark College.
Exhibition at the Ruddell Gallery, featuring artists originally from or currently working in the great state of South Dakota. According to Dustin M. Price, curator, the title of the exhibition, “History of Things to Come” refers to the artists’ history of living and working in South Dakota. The artists relationship with life in the region has informed and strengthened their evolving art practices. The exhibition acknowledges the influence of the geographical area, while looking toward to the possibilities inherent in their future practices.
Two of the five works featured in the Ruddell Gallery Exhibition, currently on display on the campus of Black Hills State University. The exhibition “History of Things to Come” demonstrates that contemporary Post Modern art practices are alive and well in South Dakota. The selected artists; Michael Baum, Karri A Dieken, James Louks, Erica K Merchant, Mike Knuston, Dustin M Price, and Ann Porter, have attended and/or taught at BHSU within the past decade. While it may not be initially recognizable, the landscape and isolation of western South Dakota has informed the artists’ works in a conceptual manner. Stillness, contemplation, labor, meditation, rural lifestyles, heritage and the landscape are all reoccurring themes throughout the artwork.

Looking back a year ago this November, FICTILIS presented a gallery-wide installation/exhibition celebrating the art of xerography (photocopying). The FICTILIS space was transform into a pop-up copy shop that is pre-stocked with a wide selection of ready-to-copy artworks, by artists from Seattle and beyond, which will blanket the space’s 17-ft-high walls. Visitors can use on-site copy machines to interact with the collection in several ways and contribute to its evolution over the course of the exhibition.
New York City artist Raphael Griswold contributed a month-long edition of serial xerographs faxed each day to Pioneer Square from across the continent.
Los Angelest artist Danielle McCullough contributed a 105-sheet xerographic treatment of the Google “finger spam” phenomenon entitled “Ring out wild bells!!!/ Say unto others what you would have them/say unto you, only way louder!” (view her Kickstarter page to help fund the project further). From her statement:
In this book, I have memorialized the gestures of distracted clerical workers, myself included, who have inadvertently inserted ourselves into the historical archive as embodied mistakes –disrupting the seamless translation of public domain texts into digital commodities as we insert our fingers into the margins. During breaks in my work at a library I’ve scanned a 1901 version of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem “In Memoriam” and inserted a parallel message in American Sign Language. This finger spelling interprets notes of encouragement, taken from the Tennyson poem and Naomi Klein’s address to the Occupy Wall Street movement.
