Hat Tip is a group exhibition generated by each member of the +1+1 collective choosing an artist whose work they admire, and asking that artist to do the same, The organizing principle for Hat Tip is based on the idea that creative inspiration, provocation, and catalysts occur through relationships and connections to other creative minds. LABspace and +1+1 both value the fertility of artistic community, in Brian Eno's words the "ecology of talent" that exists through such interwoven connections.

Believing that artists know which work is best to show and which work best answers the call of the tipped hat of a colleague, the artist themselves have been trusted to choose what to exhibit. Hat Tip thus brings together artists at different points in their careers to build an exciting and unexpected visual dialogue.

+1+1 is an artist collective founded by Heather Cox, Janice Caswell, Beth Dary, Susan Jennings, Christy Speakman and Katarina Wong. The collective seeks to expand creative connections, encourage artist-driven curatorial experimentation, and spark cross-practice dialogue and collaboration.

LABspace was founded and is directed by the artist Susan Jennings. The gallery is dedicated to experiments in curation, exhibiting category-busting and/or materially surprising contemporary art, and hosting performance art, screenings, readings and music that push the boundaries of categorization, participation and/or experience.

LABspace is located 2642 NY Rt 23 in Hillsdale, NY just west of NY Rt 22 in Hillsdale, NY. Gallery Hours are Saturdays 11-5, some Sundays (check our Facebook page and/or website) and by appointment via labspaceart@gmail.com.
