THE EXCHANGE

Longtime friends and artists, Howard el-Yasin and Suzan Shutan decided in 2022 to partner and become SomethingProjects. It is a nomadic and provisional space providing short-term exhibitions that dually highlight artists as well as introducing communities to new viewpoints and practices by state, regional, national and international artists. As an incubator for ideas it encourages artists to step outside their boundaries and experiment with the intersection of materials, production, presentation and means of engagement with audience and space. Their locations will change, and offer site-specific opportunities.

SomethingProjects is launching its first project, a statewide Connecticut Artist Treasure Hunt called THE EXCHANGE. It includes Geo-tracking & QR codes, adventuring to designated sites accessed through a map on its website.

Get ready to become part of the adventure, which will take place throughout Connecticut starting on August 15 and running daily through November 1, 2022 rain or sun. The map will be accessible on August 15 at: www.SomethingProjects.net, so you can plan for an outing or geo-tracking in the towns participating. Exciting projects in which the public is invited to engage in fun and meaningful ways will take place in the towns of: Beacon Falls, Easton, Fairfield, Darien, Bridgeport, Hartford, Waterbury, New Haven, Meriden, North Haven, Hamden, Branford and Washington Depot. Learn about the artists in your community through participating in the act of discovering what they created for you

Join The Mark Twain House & Museum’s own Jacquelyn Andrews as she talks with Jim Lee, Margot Rocklen, and Jo Yarrington about the themes, inspiration, and techniques on view in The Evocative Mark Twain Inspires the Printmakers Network of Southern New England exhibit taking place at the Mark Twain House & Museum March 24, 2022 through January 23, 2023.

Jo Yarrington will explain her artistic response to THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN, what Twain calls a “mental kaleidoscope”  and the marking of time, through the cyanotype and photogram image rendering processes that record in real-time the sun and the journey of the earth in its spinning, which best encapsulates the imprint of Twain’s work and its thingness in Yarrington’s words.
