FUEL FOR THE FIRE: Organized By Dawn Kasper in collaboration with Jay Sanders and David Zwirner
535 W. 20th & HUMAN RESOURCES LA are pleased to present FUEL FOR THE FIRE a group exhibition.
"…FUEL FOR THE FIRE In the 1980s, physicist Alan Guth offered an enhanced version of the big-‐bang theory, called inflationary cosmology… The centerpiece of the proposal is a hypothetical cosmic fuel that, if concentrated in a tiny region, would drive a brief but stupendous outward rush of space, a bang, and a big one at that… mathematical analysis also revealed (and here's where the multiverse enters) that as space expands the cosmic fuel replenishes itself, and so efficiently that it is virtually impossible to use it all up. Which means that the big bang would likely not be a unique event. Instead, the
fuel would not only power the bang giving rise to our expanding realm, but it would power countless other bangs, too, each yielding its own separate, expanding universe…"
I was given a space in Chelsea for two months. I decided to invite others to share this space with me. This exhibition is the result of the collisions that may occur in our ever-‐ expanding universe. The people involved are the fuel.

Honor Fraser Gallery is pleased to announce we now represent Dawn Kasper
Dawn Kasper gives herself over to performance with pure emotion and vigor. A performance artist who is interested in the big questions about life, love, and death, Kasper's performances are spontaneous yet calculated. While carefully orchestrated, Kasper leaves a portion of the performance to chance, so there is a possibility for the unexpected to occur.
Dawn Kasper has performed and exhibited internationally at galleries and institutions including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; the Migros Museum Für Genenwartskunst, Zurich, Switzerland; The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, CA; Art Basel Art Positions, Miami, FL; and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA. Kasper is currently one of the acting co-directors of the performance and experimental art venue Human Resources in Los Angeles, CA.
