Previous to the opening of the gallery exhibition, Noble & Superior Projects will be hosting a legendary basketball tournament: Two games played by opposing teams of five as PAINTING vs PHOTOGRAPHY and FILM vs VIDEO. Each team has been carefully curated and selected based on the artists' work and commitment to their medium. The exhibition in general is a satire, poking fun at the medium-specific wars that have waged in galleries, museums and critical writing for the past 100 years. We plan to settle the argument once and for all, on the court. The game will be followed by a ceremonial exhibition at Noble & Superior Projects with the losing team in each game showing their work upside down.
Noble & Superior Projects asked 6 painters to play against 6 photographers and 6 video artists to play against 6 filmmakers. Noble & Superior Projects' curators Patrick Bobilin and Erin Nixon would act as referees, with assistance from interns Hiba Ali and Elliot Reed.
The final scores were:
