Ari Fish: Grid-Rid : grease the release (The Seventh Temple)

January 18, 2020 - October 7, 2020
Crossroads Hotel


Grid-Rid : grease the release is the seventh in a series of ten temples by Ari Fish. This temporary, non-denominational temple evokes uncertainty and infatuation with post-mortem experience while simultaneously emulating the release of pain and suffering. Patrons of the Crossroads Hotel are invited to experience this temporary multimedia, multi-sensory temple in its many facets. The temple will evolve over three months, including music, performances, and community programs that activate themes of release, transcendence, and transformation.

Ari Fish’s Ten Temple Series began in 2010. Her temporary temples have been exhibited from coast to coast in the United States, and her eighth temple will be installed in the desert of Twentynine Palms, California in the summer of 2020. Each temple highlights local community programming to enrich the viewer’s experience and give integral visibility to regional communities. Each temple considers tenets of experience, with innovative and symbolic seating arrangements, visual projections or lighting, and a specific soundtrack to ensure an original experience that engages all ages and strives to leave the viewer with a lifelong memory.


Ari Fish: Grid-Rid is curated by Hesse McGraw and organized by El Dorado, inc with Tiffany Meesha Thompson.

The Crossroads Hotel gallery is open to all, 24 / 7.
