Frustrated by gallery bureaucracy, Ali Nickerson decided to take matters into her own home: Her exhibition Everyone Knew What Had to Happen is opening at 2387 Gallery (2387 Agricola), which just happens to be her new apartment, and an ideal place to show work that explores “my experience as a bartender and the relationships I developed with the regulars,” Nickerson writes.

The installation is made up of eight chairs that, using textiles and sculptural elements—-”hand-printed and dyed fabrics that are infected with a variety of materials (ceramic insects, fur, resin, hair)”—-represent personality traits Nickerson encountered while bartending. The walls will also be covered in grafitti-stall style illustrations, and even the floor will make you feel like you’ve stepped inside your favourite neighbourhood dive.
