‘PROJECT 7: Louis Zoellar Bickett’

Welcome to a partial viewing of The Archive, Lexington artist Louis Zoellar Bickett’s home away from home. Or, more accurately, art away from home. Beginning in 1972, Bickett started creating art installations with the objects of his daily life. The items are arranged, cataloged and tagged, then recorded in a reference index. Andy Warhol used to put a cardboard box on his desk that he filled up with whatever passed through his hands (The Warhol Museum is still going through all the boxes). Bickett is doing Warhol one better, by actively archiving portions of his life as it happens. The exhibition at Zephyr Gallery, curated by Julien Robson, is a peek into that world. Bickett and Robson are giving a talk on Wednesday, May 20 at 6 p.m.
