Currently taking place in the ZERO1 Garage, Patent Pending, is a group exhibition that uses patents as a starting point to investigate the relationship between artists, ownership, and invention. Patent Pending features artworks by contemporary artists that have either resulted from, or led to, a patent that the artist has either received a patent for or is patent pending. Participating artists are Maggie Orth, Catherine Richards, Phil Ross, Daniel Rozin, Scott Snibbe, and Camille Utterback & Romy Achituv.
