"I’m looking for love, so let’s fix the system"

By Marcus Young
with Lauren DeLand, Hannah Frick, Han Zhang, and Travis Spangler

McKnight Visual Artists Fellowship Exhibition
July 13 – August 17
MCAD Gallery, 2501 Stevens Ave, Mpls
M-F, 9-8 / Sat, 9-5 / Sun, 12-5

Free and open to the public
Opening Night Sale, July 13, 6:30-8:30pm
Happy Sales Hours, Fridays 4-7pm starting July 20 and by appointment

To shoppers and suitors: I will be available in the gallery most Fridays 4-7pm and by special appointment. See the information below to contact me about either furniture or romance. Special discounts to buyers who can recommend a date!

This work expresses my simple hope of improving my life through two related acts: finding love and de-cluttering my home. I aim to upturn the common human impulse to fill emotional voids with material goods by parting with furniture and furnishings I have grown attached to but no longer need. Using Craigslist, social media, and the gallery space, I invite interested buyers to view and purchase my belongings in this hybrid marketplace. Borrowing the attention generated by the show, I attempt to tell as many people as possible that I’m searching for the love of my life. Excerpts of my personals ad from online dating sites are on the gallery walls. With this project, I explore the themes of love and attachment to objects, loneliness and home design, determining value and letting go, and the function of the gallery in contemporary art practices.

CHINESE CHEST OF DRAWERS - was $3000, NOW $2750
This Chinese chest of drawers has traveled a path remarkably similar to my own. Created in Hong Kong, it traveled to San Francisco and spent decades in Iowa before coming to Minnesota. This elegantly ornate piece has been in my family for more than 40 years. It boasts 13 hand-carved scenes, each one unique. I think it’s made of elm. Owning this piece makes me feel I’m a thoughtful, contemplative person. This stately heirloom is priced at $2750. (40w 17.5d 52h)

………LOVE PROFILE (2/7)……… Self-Summary

Hi there. Not your average Joe, I’m a creative rule-bender, ambitious dreamer, and loyal harmonizer. Tall, adaptable, and polite, I believe in quiet art, big nature, hard science, good people, and the mystery of life. Is this too cryptic for a personals ad?

I hope to find someone really put together, who values family, honesty, and spiritual and physical health. I find smarts and kindness super sexy. Maybe you too like cooking, going to performances and the movies, being with family at the holidays, and exploring the world, near and far. I’m at ease at your side at the orchestra or the ballpark, at a work event or dinner with friends, talking about anything from philosophy to the weather. You are active so we can hike, do yoga, play tennis, etc. You love what you do which can be anything from rocket science to palm reading to dancing in the ballet. If you do all three, can you please call me right away?

I was born in Hong Kong. We moved to Iowa when I was a kid, and I came to Minnesota for college and grad school. I like it here, but my family is in California and New York City, and I find every reason to visit them. I’m drawn to people who identify with what’s beyond Minnesota. And I don’t mean Wisconsin. (Nothing against Wisconsin.)

I live an artist’s life (with a good-paying and satisfying job), and I’m looking for someone who appreciates the unconventional. I’m as much Minnesota as Hong Kong and proud of both. My Chinese background is important to me, so if my crazy culture and family are not daunting but something you can enjoy, then we’re going to get along just fine. In work and life, I practice openness and peace, and I like to think I get a tiny bit better at it every day.

I may seem a bit serious here because I’m trying hard to work this online profile, but you should know I’m also proficient at playing flip, flirty, spontaneous, even impetuous when needed. With a glass of Barbera in hand, no something bolder—a big glass of Zin—a toast to LUV!

FAUX LEATHER LOUNGE CHAIRS
Get the look of the classic Barcelona chair at 1/20 the price! I like these lounge chairs a lot but just don’t need them any longer. One features the original Frank & Son tag on the bottom. There is some rust on one chair, but no one looks at it, and it’s a bargain at $500 for the pair. (26w 30d 32h, 17h to the seat)

"I’m looking for love, so let’s fix the system"

By Marcus Young
with Lauren DeLand, Hannah Frick, Han Zhang, and Travis Spangler

McKnight Visual Artists Fellowship Exhibition
July 13 – August 17
MCAD Gallery, 2501 Stevens Ave, Mpls
M-F, 9-8 / Sat, 9-5 / Sun, 12-5

Free and open to the public
Opening Night Sale, July 13, 6:30-8:30pm
Happy Sales Hours, Fridays 4-7pm starting July 20 and by appointment

To shoppers and suitors: I will be available in the gallery most Fridays 4-7pm and by special appointment. See the information below to contact me about either furniture or romance. Special discounts to buyers who can recommend a date!

This work expresses my simple hope of improving my life through two related acts: finding love and de-cluttering my home. I aim to upturn the common human impulse to fill emotional voids with material goods by parting with furniture and furnishings I have grown attached to but no longer need. Using Craigslist, social media, and the gallery space, I invite interested buyers to view and purchase my belongings in this hybrid marketplace. Borrowing the attention generated by the show, I attempt to tell as many people as possible that I’m searching for the love of my life. Excerpts of my personals ad from online dating sites are on the gallery walls. With this project, I explore the themes of love and attachment to objects, loneliness and home design, determining value and letting go, and the function of the gallery in contemporary art practices.

If you do all three, can you please call me right away?

I was born in Hong Kong. We moved to Iowa when I was a kid, and I came to Minnesota for college and grad school. I like it here, but my family is in California and New York City, and I find every reason to visit them. I’m drawn to people who identify with what’s beyond Minnesota. And I don’t mean Wisconsin. (Nothing against Wisconsin.)

I live an artist’s life (with a good-paying and satisfying job), and I’m looking for someone who appreciates the unconventional. I’m as much Minnesota as Hong Kong and proud of both. My Chinese background is important to me, so if my crazy culture and family are not daunting but something you can enjoy, then we’re going to get along just fine. In work and life, I practice openness and peace, and I like to think I get a tiny bit better at it every day.

I may seem a bit serious here because I’m trying hard to work this online profile, but you should know I’m also proficient at playing flip, flirty, spontaneous, even impetuous when needed. With a glass of Barbera in hand, no something bolder—a big glass of Zin—a toast to LUV!

FAUX LEATHER LOUNGE CHAIRS
Get the look of the classic Barcelona chair at 1/20 the price! I like these lounge chairs a lot but just don’t need them any longer. One features the original Frank & Son tag on the bottom. There is some rust on one chair, but no one looks at it, and it’s a bargain at $500 for the pair. (26w 30d 32h, 17h to the seat)

………LOVE PROFILE (2/7)……… Self-Summary

About:

I’m looking for love, so let’s fix the system

By Marcus Young
with Lauren DeLand, Hannah Frick, Han Zhang, and Travis Spangler

McKnight Visual Artists Fellowship Exhibition
July 13 – August 17
MCAD Gallery, 2501 Stevens Ave, Mpls
M-F, 9-8 / Sat, 9-5 / Sun, 12-5

Free and open to the public
Opening Night Sale, July 13, 6:30-8:30pm
Happy Sales Hours, Fridays 4-7pm starting July 20 and by appointment

To shoppers and suitors: I will be available in the gallery most Fridays 4-7pm and by special appointment. See the information below to contact me about either furniture or romance. Special discounts to buyers who can recommend a date!

This work expresses my simple hope of improving my life through two related acts: finding love and de-cluttering my home. I aim to upturn the common human impulse to fill emotional voids with material goods by parting with furniture and furnishings I have grown attached to but no longer need. Using Craigslist, social media, and the gallery space, I invite interested buyers to view and purchase my belongings in this hybrid marketplace. Borrowing the attention generated by the show, I attempt to tell as many people as possible that I’m searching for the love of my life. Excerpts of my personals ad from online dating sites are on the gallery walls. With this project, I explore the themes of love and attachment to objects, loneliness and home design, determining value and letting go, and the function of the gallery in contemporary art practices.
