I would like to thank Area 405 and its volunteers for their support with Propositions.

I would like to thank the artists Neal Reinalda, Ding Ren, Glenn Shrum and Elena Volkova, who, in addition to Ingrid Burrington, printer, became my fellow collaborators.

Area 405 is a not-for-profit and artist-run gallery.  The vigor and depth of knowledge contributed by those involved with the exhibition have given one more event in which artists and their support have sought a different use-value than that presently offered by the exchange of commodities.  I believe this contributed to the exhibition’s virtue.
