From the Press Release:

Processus presents an exhibit of transformed or altered common life objects and materials bringing attention to current issues. Curated by Viviane Le Courtois, artist and co-founder of Processus, the exhibit explores materials and important ideas from our current life and times in conjunction with the Biennial of the Americas’s theme: Now. The exhibit will be up until October 17th, 2015.

Today, superficiality is widespread on social media, in popular places, and in artists studios. It is the journey of a curator to find what matters by sifting through thousands of images online and many studio spaces. How many artists today are affected by the daily news? How many artists communicate what they think or live through art? We are bombarded by meaningless images and words while the world is still evolving and changing everywhere on the planet. But how do we take the news that matter and make objects talk for themselves? The exhibit is a collection of found, altered and assembled objects that inspire social, economical and environmental dialogues through art.

Processus is open Tuesday to Saturday,10 am- 6 pm, by chance or by appointment. For more information about exhibitions, call Viviane Le Courtois at 303 526 8064 or email processusartlife@gmail.com

Review

Five Biennial-Inspired Exhibitions at Denver Galleries and in the Streets!
By Susan Froyd, Westword, Wednesday, July 15, 2015

“Now!, the 2015 Biennial of the Americas theme, asks the public to be present, eyes wide open, in the immediate world….The member-driven artist workspace Processus will jump into the Now! game a little late, but with no less enthusiasm, with The Life of Things (La Vie des Choses), curated by Denver artist (and Processus co-founder) Viviane Le Courtois. The group show will focus on what’s important in a glib world driven by social media, through a collection of found, altered and assembled objects meant to open conversations about contemporary life.”
