Sarah Meyohas performance @ 303 Gallery, Jan 20

20 January 2016

Sarah Meyohas is ending a series of gestures and opening a solo exhibition with a final performance and closing remarks at New York’s 303 gallery on January 20, on show until January 30.

Commencing with a performance on January 8, Meyohas has spent the past 12 days recording her effects on the financial market from 303 gallery. Literally painting these shifts in market capitalisation with an oil stick on blank canvases, the artist has spent her time trading on the New York Stock Exchange during regular market hours –Tuesdays to Fridays, from 1 to 4pm.

Calling it “a gestural record of the stocks performance”, the project and exhibition comes as an extension of Meyohas’ background in International Relations and founding of the BitchCoin cryptocurreny.

See the 303 gallery website for more details and performance times. **
