Showpaper is like the nursery for hatchling shows. It gives your event a warm bottle and burps it and wipes the yellow diarrhea cream off its ass and swaddles it in a soft blankie, presenting it to the world in a non-judgmental way, totally for free. Which makes it the place to find out about what’s going on, at least when spaces aren’t being all secretive assholes and worried about narcs. But recently in a weird plot twist, Showpaper extended their all-inclusive happy good vibes to the art world and opened their arms to whatever anyone wanted to give them for a visual exhibition. We know what kind of garbage that would harvest if it was an open call for bands, but hopefully it won’t mean the same for their Open Submissions Art Show, which opens at Secret Project Robot tomorrow. Some of the people involved are pretty good (Korakrit Arunanondchai, Jim Avignon, Moira Connelly, Jesse Gelaznik, Nathan Gelgud, Lizz Hickey, Zara Messano & Gil Gentile, Leif Parsons, Kathleen Vaccaro, Jason Yates) so we're hoping all the yahoos weeded themselves out on pure feelings of inadequacy and self-consciousness alone.
