Most of us know the riddle about the man who has to cross a river while transporting a chicken, a fox, and a bag of grain. How can he get them all across without being devoured? Artist Abby Manock helps you figure it out in her solo exhibition, Lesser Evils. The artist presents maps and graphs documenting the projects creation, large sculptural installations (e.g., costumes used in Manocks most recent performance in New York), and quirky objects including foxtails suspended from the ceiling. Is the artistic pursuit in the journey or the successful completion of the task? Gallery Diet will provide the questions, Manock will provide the visual cues, and you will provide the answers. Gallery Diet has been around since 2007. Its been a platform for internationally recognized artists including Charley Friedman, Christy Gast, Richard Höglund, Manock, and Daniel Milewski.
