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 withheld until all experiments came to a close. The results of Where’s findings, along with related essays selected by Coburn and the initial prompt he wrote, are contained in this conclusive publication, Where 5.
