Concurrent with Molly Springfield’s exhibition, the gallery will present Some Things That Might Happen in its project space; a 2010 video by Newburgh, NY based John Delk. Some Things That Might Happen consists of the last half of 119 drug ads wherein side effects are enumerated. The ads are played endlessly in a random sequence.

Some Things That Might Happen is the product of a profit driven medical machine that attacks our collective  psyche with bodily maladies only it can heal. Though treatments may produce nausea, stroke, dry mouth, heart attack, dizziness, high blood pressure and diarrhea, “patients” maintain the happy demeanor of those who live in an American dream.
