Super Long Play! w/Benton-C Bainbridge & Collaborators 

When: May 12-June 20, 6-9 p.m. 2012
The best thing about Seed Space is also the worst thing about Seed Space: its location inside a warehouse-sized artists’ studio that is itself inside a 100-year-old factory makes it a sort of nesting doll of industrial design and debris. If you can figure out a way to make that a part of your artwork, you’ve got this amazing architectural time capsule to work with — but you can’t depend on the sanctity of a white-box space to validate work that’s too boring to live inside such a mess. Benton-C Bainbridge has been working on an interactive installation that might be the perfect Seed Space gallery show — lo-fi, anachronistic and totally engaging. Bainbridge, who has a résumé that boasts work from spots as varied as they are prestigious (The Whitney, the American Natural History Museum and Madison Square Garden, to name just a few), is based in both the Bronx and, it turns out, Nashville. This is his first local exhibition, and he’s enlisted the help of local performers to create a stack of 50 VHS tapes with 14 hours’ worth of footage that creates, according to the artist statement, “an ‘electronic sketchbook’ of real-time recordings of rehearsals and studies … painted with live electronics.” The opening’s tonight at Seed Space, and while you’re there you can catch the release party for the new regional art mag Number.
