July-September 2018 • Oakland, CA, East Bay Community Space
Opening Reception: June 29th, 2018
A solo show of the four years daily projects by Molly McLeod
Curated by Gallery 213
X days of Y is my first solo show and showcases work from four years of my daily art practice. From games and words, to photos and zines, this show spans the scales of intimacy and invites you to consider your daily creative expression.
My artwork invites you to consider your relationship to technology, friendship, vulnerability, connection, joy, support, and love. It's not meant to be experienced just on a tiny screen – I'm excited to share my art with you IRL for the first time. Get up close and personal with it, use it to creatively connect with your friends, and let it bring you hope in the dark.

52 Weeks of Challenges
For my birthday in 2015, I started a new project: 52 Challenges. I invited a group of friends at my birthday party to write challenges for me on index cards, and put them into an envelope without looking at them – I did one challenge a week for the following year.
The challenge parameters I established are:
- Each challenge should be achievable in 10-15 minutes. It should also be something I can reasonably do with my current skills and abilities, from anywhere I am in the world.
- They can be specific (draw a dog on a unicycle), broad or open to interpretation (shake it off), creative (make a gif about your feelings about the moon, write a really short story about ampersands), selfish (call Lyzi on the phone), introspective (think about your dream house in 20 years), physical (solo dance party to your favorite Queen song)
