"There are only a few images of unpeopled landscapes in Americans Parade... photographed in the cool, vernacular idiom of Walker Evans or the New Topographics: shopfront architecture, suburban bungalows, kerbs and porches, railway crossings and freeway overpasses – America as it’s seen from the road. These landscapes are the frame of reference for every image in the book." - Eugenie Shinkle for @americansuburbx

Upheaval brings to mind a violent disruption, something we can all relate to right now. But it also feels like a positive thing - a potential catalyst for positive change. #PMA

There's a reason that none of the photos in Rabbit / Hare are attributed to @iankline or @icy_squid; every image is credited to them both. They each readily explain that they could not have made these images without the other.... sort of a visual version of finishing each other's sentences. Working with Ian and David to publish Rabbit / Hare was a sweet study in partnership, to say the least. @ Echo Park

Is coffee a stay home staple in your house? To help you stay safe & still get your fix, we've lowered the price of our coffees AND we're donating $5/bag to DirectRelief.org for COVID relief.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the time being (and for as long as we can manage), all of our coffees are just $15 & our donations will go directly fund protective equipment for healthcare heroes fighting COVID. Link in bio.

04/11/2020

Of course, it’s easy to romanticize the context of Rabbit / Hare - childhood friends from a small town, setting off on the road trip that turns into a sort of post-adolescent coming of age - but that’s an oversimplification and not nearly as interesting nor beautiful as the ironic twists that eventually brought the book to fruition. Punctuated by America's socio-political climate of 2017, David Billet (@icy_squid) and Ian Kline (@iankline) made their way to Texas, navigating a landscape of polarized viewpoints, and ultimately offer an unexpected, thoughtful objectivity.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In Rabbit / Hare, Billet & Kline shed their egos, and welcome differences not as right or wrong, but as new and interesting. Even its title, a simple, serendipitous slip of the tongue meant to convey opposition, reveals a sense sameness. The pair share a remarkable openness that extends beyond the photos and into the process - a team effort seemingly with its own gravitational pull, drawing into a their singular bond all of its collaborators, now friends. At a time when the world is collectively craving togetherness and community, Rabbit / Hare offers moments that connect us, absent of judgement and captured with earnest curiosity. Welcome to the pull.

Just over here, at home, thinking about all the friends we've hosted in this very spot for various versions of "Coffee & Books".

"Rabbit / Hare" by David Billet and Ian Kline is now available for purchase and will begin shipping in May to ensure that the first 50 copies come signed by both artists. (Sorry for the delay as we navigate these pandemic days.)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Billet and Kline made the pictures in Rabbit / Hare on a road trip to Texas. And right away that statement is going to create a certain set of expectations... But the real glory of Rabbit / Hare is how surely its makers have defied easy stereotypes: these pictures do not derive their palpable life from mere subject matter. In this book, butterflies and back hair are equally magical and mundane, as they should be. Qualities of light are equally qualities of sensibility. The human beings in the pictures gently revel in the pleasures of riding horses, or smoking cigarettes, or exposing skin to sun and air. And similarly we see Billet and Kline revel in their intuition and in the quality of their inquiry.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Rabbit / Hare will not tell us anything about how to evaluate... What we see instead is how to meet the world with open minds and open hearts and to make something lasting of that meeting.

🚫Postponed. A note from @subliminalprojects: Cheryl Dunn’s LET THEM EAT CAKE photography exhibit is an important survey of the current political climate and American landscape, and it deserves to be celebrated properly. Due to restrictions, we feel that the timing is not right for the opening reception this weekend and we are postponing the opening to a later date. As an artist-run and artist-forward gallery we take this decision very seriously and want to work to make sure the message of this show does not get lost.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A new date will be announced, but for now we are committed to supporting our community and keeping them safe. We teamed up with independent publishing group Deadbeat Club to release the Cheryl Dunn Let Them Eat Cake zine with images from the exhibition. The fallout from these worldwide changes is having a deep impact on the creative world and it is very important to support the arts, so we encourage you to pick up a copy and show your support!

This! Right now. However you feel after yesterday's primary results, there is work to be done: Subliminal Projects presents #LETTHEMEATCAKE, by @cheryldunn. As we face the 2020 election year, LET THEM EAT CAKE, provides an arching photo survey of the current American political climate and the Americana landscape as it withstands the story of a divided country, not from the perspective of politicians and their agenda, but from the people in the streets. To advance this dialogue to action, 25% of the purchase price from art sales will be donated to the @aclu_nationwide to support their mission of realizing the promise of the Constitution for all and expanding the reach of its guarantees.

In conjunction with the opening, our latest release is a zine highlighting images from the exhibition, available at the opening reception in-store at Subliminal Projects Saturday, March 14th at 7 pm, and online at the link in our bio.

In exploring the constructions of female identity, @maudearsenault's artistic approach is intimate, rooted in her experience as a woman and mother and in the observations in her daily environment. Here, two women walked down the beach, catching Maude's attention for a second time that week. Their relationship was ambiguous, but their synchronicity undenaible. "Sisterhood". #entangledthebook
