SPACE MISSION // GALLERY 119 // LOWELL, MA
We are super psyched to be involved in this epic group show, curated by Bradford Rusick, who invited representatives of several collaborative and dynamic spaces in Massachusetts. The NCAA is excited to be the only non-space, whose mission it is to address and fill what spaces we find throughout the planet (Thinking of Space Jams). Maria Molteni’s Worm Hole will be appropriately on display along with Lizzie Curran’s Fan and Feather facing off Cara Kuball’s Gold Scale Pink Bloc. We are pleased to say that Taylor McVay is part of TWO of the spaces represented in the show!

About:

NCAA invite you to Cure Empty Net Syndrome!

Brought to participants via traveling workshops, pick up games and internet cataloguing, the NCAA is a craftivist project that addresses public space, diversity, collaboration, feminism, and interdisciplinary learning. The collective assembles hand-made basketball nets for abandoned hoops, usually via knit and crochet, to build proactive inclusive relationships between artists, athletes, and neighbors. Here the form and function of the “street” and the “domestic” collide in hand-made tactical aesthetics that express dissidence and generate new approaches to public space.

Basketball has slowly evolved since 1891, when James Naismith posed a recycled peach basket as the first hoop for his students in Springfield, MA. Woven nets emerged several years later, introducing a new dimension for movement and audio-kinetic satisfaction. Inspired by the many ways nets benefit the game, NCAA Net Works proceeds by a mapping process and a form of DIY slow production that utilize creative problem solving in under-maintained urban spaces. The project draws attention to the expressive potential of these spaces while challenging commercially driven professional athletic institutions.
