Fugitive Projects was invited by SEED to participate in BIN, exhibiting at AVA in Chattanooga, January 2009. SEED is an art collective in Chattanooga, TN. The motivation for BIN comes through a need to address the historical marginalization of artists and methods for overcoming this scenario. Each collective involved in this project is a vital model for alternative pathways, invention, action, and interdisciplinary approaches to making. This project is not predetermined. Instead of formulas, conventions, expectations, and objects – SEED is working with online relationships, and local negotiations.SEED is pleased to announce the participation and/or contribution by some fantastic collectives including Basekamp(Philadelphia), BLW, Common Places Project(Tampa), DeadTech (Chicago), Fugitive Projects (Nashville),Graffiti Research Lab (New York), Guerrilla Girls, InCUBATE-Chicago (Chicago), Mess Hall (Chicago), Paintallica(Washington), RTmark, TEAM LUMP (Raleigh), 6+ , andThe Yes Men. A reception is scheduled for February 6, 2009. Other programs will be announced as more information is available.

Pressing Pause opening night
Fred Clarke, a former feature photographer from the Nashville Banner, is an award-winning international documentary photojournalist contracted by the International Committee of the Red Cross to document civilian populations caught in the crossfire of armed conflict. He has spent years in war-torn areas such as Azerbaijan, Bosnia, Chechnya, Lebanon, Liberia, and South Africa.
Pressing Pause is an invitational response to Clarke’s work curated by Zeitgeist gallery and artists from Fugitive Projects.
After leaving the Banner several years ago, Clarke focused his direction concentrating solely on capturing humanitarian images in conflict and post-conflict situations. This exhibition is an effort to make the struggle of these individuals and families whose lives have been put on indefinite hold less abstract than it is portrayed by our mainstream media.
Exhibiting artists include:
Fred Clark, Patrick DeGuira, Terry Glispin, Bryan Hunter, Pradip Malde, Richard Mitchell, Melody Owen, Lesley Patterson-Marx, Kevin McCoy, Greg Pond, Bert Rodriguez, Jack Dingo Ryan, Hans Schmitt-Matzen, Donna Tauscher, Lain York.
Fred Clarke and several artists from Fugitive Projects will give a gallery talk at Zeitgeist Thursday evening, February 15th, 2007 from 6-8PM.
