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.

Inside, the art of Thomas Demello and Harry the Hat will hang on the beautifully textured restaurant walls of The Guild. Both have completed new drawings for the Subjects part of the show. Harry the Hat will create a cast of characters by who, if brought to life, would be sitting in the chairs themselves and Thomas Demello will be presenting minimalist line drawings that will reflect the sketches that started the design process for the chairs.

 

Again, the show opens from 7-11 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, and remains open from 9:30 a.m. to midnight Saturday, Dec. 1, with the official premiere of Hotchkiss Meats a short film about a man and his robot by Chris Martino from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday night.

The Guild and Basile Studio are located at 1805 Newton Ave. in Barrio Logan, 619-564-7584.   *For high-resolution images, email kinsee.morlan@gmail.com.
