BUYPASS: an exhibition at Salvation Army Stores within all 5 boroughs NYC

William Brovelli is orchestrating a conceptual art exhibition across the 5 bouroughs during the month of January 2010.

buypass william brovelli


The idea is to encourage the spectator to purchase an item that will become the art object (À la readymade) This event is dedicated to the life and work of Ann T. Kenyon 1932-1994.

This (multiple space) solo exhibition is to take place within a 30 day period (Jan.1, 2010 –Jan.30, 2010) Location: all *Salvation Army locations within the five boroughs of NYC. 

The purchased (personalized) item as well as the exhibition card and documentation of the event (the receipt) becomes the art object. The artwork will not be recognized as such without all three elements in place.   Through the act of selection and purchase, the buyer becomes the main player via aesthetic control in the realization of the art object. It must be understood that this project is less about the Readymade per se as it is about using the readymade as a vehicle that will enable greater control on the part of the spectator in terms of deciding what or even if the art object is going to be.

There will be no artist reception, signatures or any other interaction between artist and spectator(s) during the exhibition.  Anytime after the 30 day exhibition period, participants may contact the artist for a free exhibition card that will validate the object.  (Postage paid by artist.)   

*Note: The artist only suggests purchasing the object from the Salvation Army store. Any object not purchased from a Salvation Army store and accompanied by a receipt that falls within the exhibition date, will be considered void in terms of  its relation to this project and exhibition. The Salvation Army is not affiliated with the artist or this project.

A. Bill Miller: Samples from the Gridworks Collection Project @ Some Walls

A. Bill Miller at Some Walls

A. Bill Miller: Samples from the Gridworks Collection Project Archives
November 15, 2009 – January 10, 2010

A. Bill Miller is currently an Associate Lecturer at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and an Instructor at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. He lives and works in East Troy, Wisconsin. He is noted for his Gridworks Project, which comprises abstract ASCII drawings, ink drawings, animated GIFs, video, and performances which are frequently shown in the U.S. and internationally.

Some Walls is pleased to exhibit twelve of Miller’s inkjet prints, with additional prints available for viewing. This is Miller's first solo exhibition in California. Additional ASCII drawings can be seen on Miller’s blog, and more images, animations, and video are at his website.

A. Bill Miller’s ASCII drawings are made at the keyboard with text– characters and letters.  He draws/types grid-based and grid-defying images that are surprisingly varied and dynamic,  pictorial and spatial, rhythmic and dynamic. As writing has overwhelmingly moved from the pen to the keyboard and monitor, it also makes sense that drawing might make a similar move from the pencil. By making prints, Miller transports his images from the flickering, pixilated digital realm to our analog, tactile world of paper and ink. Seeing his drawings outside the monitor is an entirely different experience from online viewing; where the digital image scrolls by intangibly, the art work as object allows the viewer to see and contemplate a crisp, satisfyingly still, human-scaled image. In these prints one can fully assess Miller’s range of ideas, visual invention, and unique skill.

Some Walls is open by appointment only. To view the exhibition online please visit
