Pump Project: The Door by the Garden

Randi Turkin June 17, 2018

Pump Project’s final show in the well-known and beloved yellow warehouse on Shady Lane is The Door by the Garden, an exhibit by two-person collective, Nat Bradford and Tsz Kam.

The artists have been collaborating since 2015, their work centering around the experience of shifting between girlhood and womanhood within the ambiguity of gender. The exhibit features work staging scenes of domestic comfort situated within a fantasy world with characters playing roles in seduction and repulsion. The show closes June 23.

Pump Project has been housed in the yellow complex for over a decade. It is home to 40+ artists and is a place of community and creativity. There will be a “New Beginnings Farewell Fundraiser” party on June 23 from 7:00-11:00pm. Entry is free, but donations are suggested at the door. You can RSVP to the event here.

In the coming months, Pump Project will be opening a new facility with artist studios and a gallery near Riverside Drive and Pleasant Valley, southeast of downtown. Pump’s director, Joshua Green, says that doors will open in September or October, and the facility will house organizations like Tapestry Dance Company, Sun Radio and a theatre. We will give you more information once it is released.
