D.I.Y. P.I. Opening Reception

Do Your Own Viewing

The artist who followed and documented the outings of someone who stole her identity for two years (Dear Erin Hart,) presents her newest exhibition—D.I.Y. P.I. Jessamyn Lovell will be setting up a performance art space as a private investigator's office at Central Features Contemporary Art this Saturday, Aug. 26. Providing a space for contributors of this project to interact with locals, it gives visitors the opportunity to engage in the project themselves. This free gallery opening also gives visitors a chance to see the culmination of Lovell's work as she will be showing “sousveillance” materials akin to her commissions relating to her actual private investigating work as well as creating mysteries for people to solve.
