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.
