Artist Paul Pagk in front of part of Cosmic Sex Poem Children of the Revolution, his painting intervention last week at Exhibition, a temporary space in a vacant storefront at 211 Elizabeth St. between Prince and Spring Sts. A single, multi-artist, continuous work, Exhibition is showing for six months. According to its Web site, the artwork is an intervention upon interventions, belongs to no one and is not for sale, and can be modified, parasitized and destroyed. The artist is drawn from a hat. The artist works in areas determined by a roll of dice. Pagk said he couldnt remove the Vote Hamas that a previous artist had painted since it wasnt in either of two spaces he was allowed to intervene in, so he added an abstract yellow symbol across from it. Three days later, another artist intervened. The space is open through August, Wed. to Sun., 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
