NEW YORK, NY.- Special Special is presenting Artists’ Tools, a group exhibition showcasing the innovative devices created by artists to aid in their creative practice or in daily life. Custom-made, repurposed, or created through assemblage, these tools can be considered artworks in their own right.

Artists’ Tools features contributions from 32 artists working in a variety of mediums across fields of art, design, and technology. Featured tools include a string necklace that serves as a measurement device, a self-driving gallery pedestal, and a teapot that doubles as an audio synthesizer.

Special Special will also introduce a limited edition of works on paper in collaboration with James Chrzan. Created daily throughout the course of the exhibition, each site-specific drawing is produced by a hygrothermograph, recording changes in the temperature and humidity inside the gallery over a 24-hour period. For Artists’ Tools, the gallery space is transformed into a pegboard-clad, studio-inspired setting serving as a backdrop for viewers to discover these imaginative, playful, and functional objects. This is the first show to take place in the store’s new layout.

The exhibition is on view through August 31, 2020 at Special Special, located at 44 E. 1st Street in New York City.

Featured artists include: Agnes Fries & Giada Montomoli, Beka Goedde, Brett Gui Xin, Britt Moseley, Cevahir Özdoğan, Che-Wei Wang, Conor Klein, Del Hardin Hoyle, Dier Zhang, Half–Wet, Hannah Wnorowski, Izzy Van den Heuve l, James Chrzan, Kevin Abosch, Kunning Huang, Lorraine Li, Ludovic Namin, Marianne Vieulès, Martie Holmer, Max Spitzer, Northy Chen, Patrick Carlin Mohundro, Sebastián Morales & Tiri Kananurak, Sofía Clausse, Songyi Kim, Steph Mantis, Tim Simonds, Vincent Kosellek, Winslow Funaki,
