Zygote was a key partnering organization bringing Rooms to Let to Cleveland and this will be the second year that we participate in the community hands-on event on May 17th. Built upon last year’s overwhelming success of the inaugural Rooms to Let: Cleveland, the innovative event will return to the Slavic Village neighborhood on Saturday, May 16th and Sunday, May 17th, 2015. Artists will create a temporary art exhibition using vacant homes as their medium. The event, free and open to the public, will also include a neighborhood block party with live music, hands-on art activities and local food purveyors. Please note: Rooms To Let takes place May 16 & 17 but Zygote will be there on May 17th only.

Come and FREE THE INK!

DOCUMENTA: November 1-30, 2014

“Zygote provides needed short-term space that I need to test and document my work for my website, grant applications, show proposals, and for collectors.”
— Christine Mauersberger

  • Do you need to find a great photographer who can fill all your documentation needs?
  • Can Zygote provide a clean, private space for scheduling a studio visit with a curator or gallerist?
  • Like Christine, do you need a professional space to test drive and document an installation?

September 12 – October 4, 2014

Reception: September 12 – 6-8 pm

Artist Talk: September 24 – 6:30 pm

I was the kid who never left my scabs alone; I picked at them.  I’m not sure if I was attracted to self-inflicted pain, but what I do know is that I was attracted to the breaking of patterns on my skin and the mark that would be left behind.  I liked the permanency and mystery of scars.  Then there are, what I call, the unmarked scars.
