The Jaunt, the residency program inviting artists to travel and create a single work based on their experiences, is turning ten this year, and a group exhibition at Hashimoto Contemporary highlights original works and prints from the archive by nearly half of those who’ve participated in the project. Launched by Jeroen Smeets in 2013, The Jaunt has collaborated with nearly 100 artists working with various aesthetic impulses and mediums—this includes Liz Flores (previously), Collin van der Sluijs (previously), Vhils (previously), and Lisa Congdon (previously), to name a few—all of whom have visited destinations around the world and translated their encounters into silkscreen prints.

The celebratory exhibition, titled A Decade of The Jaunt, will be on view from April 22 to May 13 in Los Angeles, and check out our interview with Smeets for insight into the ongoing project.
