I am *SO EXCITED* about our first big show: Passable Atlas.

DATES: JUNE 19 – JULY 7, 2013;
Opening Thursday, June 20, 6-9pm
LOCATION: Red#5 Yellow#7 
4357 Melrose Ave

The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time is pleased to announce Passable Atlas, an 18-day show at R5Y7 gallery in Los Angeles, CA.

For the last four years, local cyclists Sean Deyoe and Nathan Snider have led The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time, a weekly Wednesday night bike ride exploring far-flung areas of the city. Convinced that bicycle infrastructure encompasses much more than bike lanes and river paths, they climb hills, wander off-road, and venture underground to bring out the hidden and unexpected connections between otherwise disconnected places. The ride is known for its unique routes and ambitious conceptual themes, aiming to give participants a balance between seeing new things and seeing old things anew.

Passable Atlas is a showcase of maps, photos, and video from The Passage ride, with nods to the various literary, architectural, and intellectual sources that have served as inspirations. For the full experience, those with bicycles may also take part in a special Saturday night ride scheduled in conjunction with the closing of the show on June 29th. Part document, part experience, part guidebook for exploration, Passable Atlas presents an argument for a more open city.

Passable Atlas opens Thursday, June 20th at 6pm at the Red #5 Yellow #7 gallery, 4357 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA. The artists will be giving a talk about the ride and exhibit on Tuesday, June 24th at 6:30pm, and there will be a closing event on Saturday, July 6th at 6pm, followed by a bike ride at 8:30pm.
