first solo exhibition of TOO HARD TO KEEP


The Riverside Arts Center Freeark Gallery
Too Hard to Keep, September 3—October 9, 2010
Artist Jason Lazarus
Curated by Anne Harris
Reception: Sunday, September 12, 3:00-6:00 pm.

The Riverside Arts Center is pleased to present the inaugural exhibition of
Jason Lazarus’s photo archive "Too Hard to Keep," a repository for
photographs both too painful to keep and too meaningful to destroy. This
on-going and expanding project will be displayed in two parts: an installation
of photographs from the archive and a “drop box.” Anyone can add to the
archive by depositing pictures in this box.

Jason's work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, with solo
exhibitions at such venues as the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Spertus
Institute, Kaune Sudendorf Gallery in Cologne, Germany; Das Weisse Haus,
Austria; and D3 projects, Los Angeles.
