Christy Mitchell 

When: Nov. 3-25 2017
Phone: 802-540-6840
Describing herself as a conceptual artist, the owner, director and curator of Burlington’s S.P.A.C.E. Gallery continues her tradition of an annual solo show with “Don’t Be a Stranger.” Mitchell seems to be continuing — and refining — what she started last year with “In Real Life,” a multi-media exhibition dedicated to her own experiences with online dating. Here, a room sparsely decorated with period set pieces and various murder weapons — purloined directly from the classic board game Clue — provide the backdrop to a series of old-school black rotary phones. Each is programmed to play computerized recordings of text messages that Mitchell received from people she’s dated. It’s a peculiar mashup of time, space and metaphor that somehow manages to feel both on-the- nose and deviously sly.
