PYRAMID SCHEME : SATURDAY, FEB 1
Tribble & Mancenido are thrilled to co-host this one day only, pop-up exhibition alongside friend/artist Nat Ward.
Pyramid schemes are an unsustainable business model, tarnishing reputations in industries from finance, to art, to higher education. This unique pop-up exhibition uses the lucrative socially-networked mechanism of a pyramid scheme to generate a group exhibition surveying the work of connected artists. The pyramid scheme will not only reveal patterns and themes within contemporary art, but the social support structures which enable its creation.
In the traditional execution of a pyramid scheme, close networks of professional associates are betrayed by those operating the pyramid from the top. In an unbalanced top-heavy world, resources are scraped from those on lower rungs to support the excesses of those on top. By establishing a culturally inflected pyramid scheme, a new curatorial manifesto emerges. Art making, unlike other forms of capital production, is a generative cultural force. By creating and bringing together new artworks, a surplus value is created. This surplus is real, and vast, however unwieldy on the axis of time. By surveying an inspiring collection of contemporary artwork for one-night-only, we get a brief glimpse of concentrated artistic institution-scaled wealth, beyond the grasp of any one individual.

CHOROGRAPHY : IN SEARCH OF THE NEW AMERICAN LANDSCAPE
Industrial Park Cave Route, Kansas City, KS 2008
Chorography : In Search of the New American Landscape, curated by Sam Barzilay, is currenty on view at the Athens Photo Festival in Greece. Tribble & Mancenido are one (pair) of 4 artists in the show.
A term first encountered in Ptolemy’s “Geographia”, and more recently rehabilitated by German geographer Ferdinand von Richthofen, chorography’s purview has always been the provision of a systematic, detailed description and analysis of a region – pushing against the rigid boundaries of geography by seeking to record more than mere topography.
In her book “Tooth for an Eye”, Deborah Luster expands upon this concept, eloquently defining chorography as “a form of geography that describes the inherent attributes of a place. These attributes may be physical, sociological, conceptual, metaphysical or sensory”.
Heavily influenced by geography throughout its brief history, the shaping of America’s socio-political landscape has developed distinct cultural fault lines – ranging from the North-South ideological divide, to the “rugged individualism” credo of the West – that continue to influence social attitudes throughout each region.
And it is along these fault lines, at the crossroads of geography and human experience that our photographers’ subjects lie, each inhabiting their own liminal state: between the physical and digital realms; between land and sea; between racial divisions; between loads. For it “is in these cracks, in the interstices of social structure, that [we] are most aware of [ourselves]” (La Shure, 2005).
Providing a visual exploration of the shifting social landscape in America – at a time of heightened economic uncertainty and social alienation – the exhibition “Chorography: In Search of the New American Landscape” features photographs by Joni Sternbach, Nate Larson & Marni Shindelman, Matt Eich, and Tribble & Mancenido.

HARLEM POSTCARDS at THE STUDIO MUSEUM of HARLEM
Tribble & Mancenido have been commissioned by The Studio Museum of Harlem for their Harlem Postcards Summer 2011 project.
I Love You, Harlem 2011
Throughout the twentieth century, Harlem has been regarded as a beacon of African-American history and culture. Sites such as the Apollo Theater, Abyssinian Baptist Church, and Malcolm X Corner at 125th Street and Seventh Avenue serve as popular postcard images that represent significant places and moments in this community. Today, Harlem continues to evolve as a center of history and culture. Everyday, changes are witnessed by its residents and experienced by tourists and visitors from all over the world. Harlem Postcards, an ongoing project, invites contemporary artists of diverse backgrounds to reflect on Harlem as a site of cultural activity, political vitality, visual stimuli, artistic contemplation and creative production. Representing intimate and dynamic perspectives of Harlem, the images reflect each artist’s oeuvre with an idiosyncratic snapshot taken in, or representing, this historic locale. Each photograph has been reproduced as a limited-edition postcard available free to visitors. (via)

...The line between truth and illusion in photography is one that has been frequently crossed by practitioners since the invention of the medium. Sometimes that line was crossed deliberately through the use of simple techniques like double exposing the film, adding clouds to a cloudless sky or adding color before that was naturally possible in the medium. The boundary crossing today can be seen as less pragmatic and more concerned with playing with the perception of the real and unreal put forth by the individual intention of the artist.
Summer Staged poses challenges to our perception in examining the line between documentation and creation, what is “real” (an impromptu observation) vs. what is “fake” (a staged moment). The salon style exhibition will further blur and confuse these lines…which are which and does it really matter?

LIFE AT THE WAYPOINTS of AMERICA’S TRUCKERS
Tribble & Mancenido were recently featured on The Black Snapper, have a look here
_Tribble and Mancenido’s ongoing project shows the American landscape from the unique perspective of its trucking culture. What we are presented with is not so much a picture of America but a semblance of the subculture itself- the truckers, truck stops, gas stations and other liminal areas that these professional transients traffic. In a country of ubiquity it has been strikingly difficult to connect a face to the labor of production and distribution. This young couple has endeavored to show us this from the inside while they drive a tractor-trailer for a year, highlighting the quotidian minutiae of life at the waypoints of America’s truckers.
