Face-to-Face: Blind Date is the result of a mediated art workshop which spanned four days in early November, 2015. During this workshop, 9 artists were selected by Endless Editions and Independent Biennial (Slovenia) and were prompted to create two unique artworks each day with one artist working on the opposite continent. The actual workshop, and in some cases the artworks themselves were produced via communication platforms such as Skype, Facebook and Instagram. Artworks created in this workshop have been compiled and published in two unique artist books; the first being a silkscreen book printed in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and the second being a risograph book printed in New York by Endless Editions.

This is the second public event celebrating the works produced in this workshop, and the first in North America. In this exhibition both books and individual spreads from each book will be on display in the gallery space, along with original artworks, reproductions of digital works, printed documentation and multi-media works.
