Man Bartlett’s “Kin” of his “Kith and Kin” (2010) art work in the main gallery of #TheSocialGraph.

Man Bartlett’s “Kin” is located in the main gallery of #TheSocialGraph exhibition at Outpost. It is one half of his work, “Kith and Kin” (2010), which was specially created for the show.

The other half, “Kith,” is located in Hyperallergic HQ, where Bartlett is currently doing a residency for the duration of #TheSocialGraph. The work tackles the idea of physical versus virtual presence, among other things.

On November 26 (starting at 7pm) to November 27 (same time), Bartlett will be performing “#24hKith,” a 24-hour performance in Williamsburg that will only be available to viewers online.

Bartlett’s statement for “Kith and Kin” is as follows:

You will be invited to perform
a minor action on a form

You will be asked to complete
a sentence

I will interpret your words
onto a second form

The first two lines refer to the “Kin” component at Outpost, while the last four to the “Kith” performance that will take place at the end of the month.
