The Deconsumptionists

The New York City art duo of Melissa Wolf and Paul Lamarre (aka EIDIA House) invite you to visit their newest project: The Deconsumptionists Art As Archive, (2006—). Parked in a truck yard in Bushwick Brooklyn, one half of the 48-foot semi-trailer contains steel shelving housing 171 boxes of art production, spanning three decades. The remaining open space is used to exhibit fellow invited artists—three thus far, Jay Critchley (with BABYSKINGLOVE) Andrea Monti and Mitch McEwen.

Wolf and Lamarre maintain that The Deconsumptionists is a reevaluation of capitalism and consumption in these increasingly tenuous times. This long term project had its launch with a Research Fellowship involving lectures and exhibition at the Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney, (and the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne, Australia) in 2011.

To November 1, 2013 the current exhibit "Art As Archive" is a sampling of mural photographs of the contents of five of the boxes. Please contact: eidiahouse@earthlink.net for appointment.
