Alternative gallery spaces are popping up all over the place. The Bindery Project, located in an industrial building off University Avenue in St. Paul, is one example. Co-founded earlier this year by artists Caroline Kent and Nate Young, the group set a goal "to facilitate engaging and meaningful exhibitions, operating outside the constraints of institutions and the art market." This weekend, the duo present a solo exhibition by New York interdisciplinary artist Nyeema Morgan. It includes Morgan's intricate digital drawings, created between 2007 and 2012, where she used a rule-based system to visualize 47 different pound-cake recipes, then systematically repeated the work to create 47 variable drawings. Delicious. The exhibit also includes Morgan's writings on that work, and her photography. There will be an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, August 17, and an artist's talk at 2 p.m. Saturday, August 18. 708 Vandalia St., St Paul; www.thebinderyprojects.com.
