SOLO SHOW is a hot take group show produced for Instagram by the peripatetic curatorial project FURTH YASHAR &, featuring brand new works by dozens of artists and designers — and when we say brand new, we’re talking works made within the first 72 hours after L.A.’s Safer at Home went into effect.

Combining a fascinating cross-section of urgency, anxiety, dark humor, hopefulness and improvisation, the exhibition is both a statement in response to the new socio-emotional circumstances, and itself a test of various conventional art platforms’ broader ability to adapt to the new uncertain realities of the art world’s exhibition/event/viewing/sales dynamics.

Conceived specifically for Instagram, the show has been rolling out one new piece daily, as a prompt for as much reflection, distraction, and connectivity as possible on your iPhone — and in so doing is also deconstructing how we think about installation and experiential aspects in organizing “a group show” by another means. And proceeds benefit charities chosen by the artists.

“With new parameters comes newfound inspiration,” the gallery says in its show statement. “As traditional forms of experiencing culture are now shut down, we are able to embrace something new—a non-physical exhibition.”
