The Unfolding Project is the fourth collaboration about the idea of “place” undertaken by Susan Gans and David Traylor. Prior exhibitions were conceptual and broader in context. Gans and Traylor chose Unfolding to be specific and to look at a street that reflects social, economic and cultural changes not unlike what has been seen in many cities across the country.
Gans and Traylor spent more than a year walking Union Street and talking to members of the business community, artists and residents before deciding how to shape their show. The title of the exhibition is symbolic of how the street appears on a map and how it is viewed with the work presented. The full exhibition was shown at Gallery 110 in Pioneer Square this September.
Beginning November 10th and running thru January 3rd, the Central Cinema will show highlights including the book that focuses on important intersections throughout the Union Street Corridor. A series of independent photographs augment the art book of photographs and drawings and concentrate on East Union Street.
Susan Gans is a photographer deeply rooted in city life and the back-stories not always noticed by the accidental onlooker. David Traylor is an artist and Landscape Architect who looks for a different approach to describing how landscapes and the objects within them are seen.
Susan Gans is represented by Gallery 110 in Seattle’s Pioneer Square.
David Traylor is represented by Ryan James Fine Arts in Kirkland, WA and is a member of Shift Gallery in Seattle.
