The last touches are being put on the chairs as we speak.

THE STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR THE SHOW:

1. The show is free and open to the public.

2. Bring your holiday shopping list, because the chairs and art are going to be priced to sell. Original art and design is something everyone can appreciate.

3. The art and chair show is opening from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, and continues through Saturday, Dec. 1, from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. We’ll be screening Hotchkiss Meats, a story about a man and his robot, both nights, but the official screening is Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m.

4. Adapta Project can’t wait to show you The Guild Restaurant and Basile Studio, 1805 Newton Ave. in Barrio Logan. The food is great, the ambiance is astounding and Paul Basile of Basile Studio is a creative genius. This is by far one of the most unique spaces we’ve used thus far.

5. Afraid of venturing into the Barrio? Don’t be. Here’s a simple map.

Adapta Project presents Subjects & Thrones

The boundary-blurring curatorial collective, Adapta Project, has surfaced once again, this time with an art and design exhibit showcasing custom-built chairs by San Diego and Tijuana designers, artists and architects alongside drawings by Thomas Demello and Harry the Hat and the premiere of Hotchkiss Meats, a short film about a man and his robot by Chris Martino.

 

 

Adapta Project takes over spaces in the name of art. This time, the space is the ingeniously designed mixed-use space of The Guild restaurant and Basile Studio, 1805 Newton Avenue in Barrio Logan, and the art is over a dozen custom-built chairs by San Diego and Tijuana artists, architects and designers.

The show, Subjects & Thrones, will open from 7 to 11 p.m. FRIDAY, NOV. 30. The chairs, or thrones, will fill the warehouse space of Basile Studio, a design and custom manufacturing firm owned and operated by Paul Basile, and the art will be on view inside The Guild, a beautiful eatery designed and built by Basile himself.

Adapta Project has responded to the industrial, creative space by asking dozens of Tijuana and San Diego artists, architects and designers to design and build chairs—functional, decorative, abstract and conceptual. The chairs will be at home in the manufacturing space, next to some of the very tools and machines that helped give them shape.
