Event Description
This July and August, Eric Dobbins, Lee Piechocki, Jason Barr and Kelly John Clark--the four artists at Lawrence's Wonder Fair Art Gallery, Shoppe, and Studio--are transforming the Spencer's Museum Shop into an imaginative environment constructed nearly exclusively of cardboard!

Our Tube presents a creative play on the "You Tube" culture, in which users from around the world create and share videos; the Wonder Fair team will offer its own interpretation through a four-part series of events.

Each Our Tube event will share four common themes: curating, re-working, critiquing, and advertising. In each episode of the series, one artist will curate by selecting an existing You Tube video; one artist will re-work through the creation of a copy-cat video, in line with the video sharing community; one artist will offer a video critique of the original video; and finally, one artist will create a video advertisement. The four artists will rotate through each of the roles, performing each task once throughout the project.

Each episode will debut with a video premiere featuring the artists and enlivened by time-honored movie-theater spectacle-and the requisite popcorn, candy and soda pop. The first episode premiered last week; other premieres are scheduled for July 28, August 11, and August 25
