Apathy Action

Wednesday, March 11, 2015 - 8:15pm to Saturday, April 4, 2015 - 8:15pm

APATHY/ACTION brings together two projects that respond to incidents of idleness and alienation on campus. Nyssa Komorowski and Megan Yetman operate the front gallery as an open publications studio, and as their production space for the Apathy issue of Patterns Magazine.  The back gallery is a social space informed by interventions by Matt Apedaile, who produces DIY furniture in his painting studio to encourage sociability amongst his peers. Come make, meet, discuss, organize and socialize! Or, like, don’t. Whatever.
