The duo behind Low-Commitment Projects, Brittany Powell and Tae Kitakata, work much like the Dada-ists and other art collectivists whose artistic practice embraces collaboration and a teasing of the everyday and the temporal. Though working in different states, the two bridge their aesthetic and conceptual interests through their website, www.lowcommitmentprojects.com.

Roll-Up is the fourth collaboration of Low-Commitment Projects that ventures into the high-commitment, focusing on rolled paper as a medium. From grocery list to faux waterfall, this exhibition is a unique opportunity to experience the actual objects versus the virtual ones from their website.
