Preview of our show:

The Sun That Never Sets (TSTNS) teams up with Jo Karlins’ curators to  present It Was a
Pleasure to Burn featuring Jo Karlins. TSTNS (Vanessa Albury) collaborates with Jamie
Diamond, Lauren Silberman and Elizabeth Smolarz and to exhibit artworks spoofing
reality and twisting it into real or envisioned narratives. Borrowing the first line of Ray
Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, It Was a Pleasure to Burn, is inspired by imagination and re-
invention, shared themes with the science fiction genre. We love stories about people imagining
the world and it’s possibilities, the real, the re-invented and the tailspins refracting from these
artistic visions. In the future will books be banned, will shells in our ears guide us, will woodland
creatures rule the planet, will authorship become archaic? Both the unknown of the future and
‘the other’ are great fodder for artistic practices. We present two adjacent rooms at
SPRING/BREAK Art Show 2017 examining some of these questions, a group show and a
solo project by Jo Karlins.
