01 Positive Alien - Extraterrestrial

Dear friends and supporters –

The earthly location of metro pcs is ending. We deeply thank you for your support over the past three years of exhibitions and projects.

We especially thank the artists who made the decision to work with us in our rhombus-shaped, static-laminate floored, ex-consulate storefront. It has been an amazing experience, and wouldn’t have been possible without everyone involved, artists and viewers.

On Sunday, September 4, please join us for a party from 7 to 10 PM. There will be drinks and fireworks.

On Monday, September 5, metro pcs will be blasted into outer space.

This very last exhibition will be a transmission into the vacuum of the galaxy, to exist for an eternity and to be uncovered by future interstellar travelers or alien civilizations. We have asked all artists who have participated to contribute an image and/or 100 words for our transmission. The show will beam at the speed of light on the Monday after our closing, sent “to 4 separate sectors of space to ensure the widest possible coverage” through the intergalactic eBlaster talktoETs.com. It will remain on the metro pcs website for as long it can be maintained.

You will hear from us next Monday, when the exhibition will go live and we will be floating in outer space.

Ian & Matt
