November 16-18, 2018
SEASON is proud to present a solo exhibition of work by Anthony Palocci Jr at EXCHANGE BERLIN, an international exposition of artist/curator-led presentations organized by Sluice, London, around ideas of transnational localism. This expo will take place at KühlhausBerlin, Luckenwalder Strasse 3, 10963 Berlin, November 16-18, 2018.
eXCHANGE BERLIN encourages integrated, collaborative and even spontaneous modes of exhibition and critical evaluation. The aim of all Sluice projects is to offer an independent alternative to the dominant organizational paradigms whilst demonstrating a belief in the importance of international engagement for otherwise local projects. EXCHANGE BERLIN was born from previous manifestations in New York under the title Exchange Rates. The expo’s first iteration was in October 2014 in Bushwick, Brooklyn. A second Exchange Rates took place in October 2016, again in Bushwick. The EXCHANGE exhibitions now travel to a new city every two years. In addition to the EXCHANGE project, Sluice is also responsible for the London based Sluice Biennial and the international Sluice magazine.
for each EXCHANGE project, Sluice partners with an organization from the host city, for EXCHANGE BERLIN Sluice has partnered with The Institut für Alles Mögliche, an artistic project that sets about questioning, scrutinizing and probing the institutionalization and presentation of contemporary art. These mostly playful experiments deal with interrogations of the ‘art space’, the operations of the ‘project space’ and ideas surrounding the ‘exhibition’. The central concept for both Sluice and The Institut für Alles Mögliche is to develop spaces of possibility in which exchange and experiences can take place and space where artistic activity can come in to being.

Luke Armitstead is a ceramic sculptor living in Seattle. His work is a celebration of the possibilities that can be achieved for sculptural and utilitarian objects in clay. Luke’s work takes inspiration from both architecture and organic forms and references the idea that art can interact with and be derived from a particular place. Luke received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and his Post Baccalaureate from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He has shown in Seattle, Chicago, Brooklyn and London. This is Luke’s first show at SEASON.
Sean Pearson is a Seattle artist working in dystopic drawings and sculptures. A constant theme in his work is alienation from an obvious peer group and a reluctant acceptance into an Other and how this acceptance can happen naturally, slowly and without recognition. Sean graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design, Sarasota, Florida, with additional studies through the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design, New York, New York. His work has been shown in Seattle, Brooklyn and Los Angeles, and written about in Animal New York and Art F City. This is Sean’s first show at SEASON.
