Untitled to Present UNDONE at 506 Events Gallery, 11/16
Saturday, November 16 from 6-10pm, at 506 Events Gallery, Untitled will host their final art show of the year, and the foreseeable future: Undone. As the name suggests, Undone will be a night of letting go, wrapping up, and breaking free. It will also be a night to say thanks to the hundreds, or perhaps thousands of artists and volunteers who have helped make over 75 past shows possible since the group's inception in 1991.
Untitled has built a reputation as an outsider, a positive disruptive force shaking up Nashville's staid art establishment. In that role, hosting art shows that provide an alternative environment to that of our local gallery scene has been the group's primary focus.
In the last few years more opportunities for artists to show their work in non-traditional venues have followed the path first blazed by Untitled's artists and volunteers. The diverse environment for visual arts the group first sought to create has begun to manifest itself in many new art events and organizations. Nashville's art scene is now one where alternative art events can at times outnumber those held in traditional venues. When so many groups have taken up the mantle of hosting non-traditional shows, it becomes natural to question the relevance of, and need for, regular shows hosted by Untitled.
As a group, Untitled wishes to continue their role as quirky outsider to the Nashville art scene and in that spirit has made the decision to host only one final show in 2013 and to not plan any art shows for 2014 and beyond. Untitled's board will continue to meet and plot how best to continue the organization's mission-historically Untitled has had multiple periods of hiatus and rebirth in their 20 plus years in Nashville-and may re-emerge with new ways to contribute to, subvert, and transform Nashville's evolving arts culture.
Undone will also feature a variety of entertainment, sponsors and door prizes to be announced soon.
Untitled looks forward to partnering with 506 Events Gallery as the location of Undone. The event venue is located within the 508 Lofts building in East Nashville at 506 Davidson Street near the river. The building was built in the early 1900's as an urban industrial building. 508 Lofts houses unique residential artists lofts and the event space 506 Events Gallery. This building has become widely known as the location of the popular haunted attraction "Devil's Dungeon." For more information visit www.508lofts.com
