What is BitchCoin? BitchCoin is a digital currency backed by the photography of Sarah Meyohas at a fixed exchange rate of 1 BitchCoin to 25 square inches of photographic print. This rate of exchange will not change, even if the value of the photography increases. As her work changes in value over time, so will the relative value of BitchCoin. How did BitchCoin get started? BitchCoin is the focus of “Where 6,” an exhibition on prediction at Where, a gallery and publishing house headquartered in a shipping container in Brooklyn. Where invited Sarah Meyohas to “mine” her coins in the gallery and design ...

“Where 1” features sculptures by Lea Cetera, Jesse Greenberg, and Alexandra Lerman, with a video trailer by Ted Sefcik. The related publication, also entitled Where 1, contains essays by Brian Arthur and Carlos Castellanos, includes documentation of the exhibit and is available as a printed book from Amazon, or by download for free. Where is grounded in the assertion that art and its discourse manifest the patterns, behaviors, and properties present in all complex informational systems, and that the mechanisms which produce change and growth in these systems can be applied directly to the field of artistic production vis-à-vis the exhibition ...

Essays by David Phelps, A.E. Benenson, and an interview with David Joselit. Curated by A.E. Benenson, “Where 2” opens December 14, 2013 and will run for two months at Where. This exhibition recontextualizes Douglas Gordon’s super-durational appropriation work “24 Hour Psycho” (1993) within contemporary networks of live-streaming and digital media piracy. Working as an act of recursive appropriation, “Where 2” screens Hitchcock’s “Psycho” (1960) once daily in the gallery, streaming the footage via webcam to gallery’s website at Gordon’s prescribed speed of 2 frames per second, creating a continuous, unauthorized digital version of “24 Hour Psycho.” Where: 1397myrtleavenueunit4brooklynny11237.com

During the final weeks of March 2014, Jeremy Couillard’s spinning painting, When Appropriate, Use Metaphors That Represent Concrete, Familiar Ideas, twirled silently in our closed and locked shipping container, only visible to the public via live-stream on our web site. When Appropriate… was the first installment of Where 4, a group show celebrating constraint that was staggered across March, April, and May. Couillard created When Appropriate… under the overt constraints entailed by a commissioned artwork. We asked him to make one of his motor-powered, rotating circular paintings, but with added parameters for a specific point of reference: the spinning color-wheel ...

Where 5 began with a proposition that Tyler Coburn write a speculative press release for an exhibition he would have enjoyed – but one that nevertheless did not exist. Where took the theme of Coburn’s imagined exhibition and produced three experiments. For the first, Where opened its shipping container “to anyone, to do anything” from September 12 – October 12, 2014. For the second, Where initiated a handwritten letter campaign to established commercial galleries. For the third, Where organized a dinner at one such gallery, David Lewis, entirely comprised of edible parasites. The theme and speculations proposed in Coburn’s press release were ...
