After each exhibition, an unspoken rule requires to paint the space in order to remove all the traces for the upcoming show. The Pallas Projects moved to 115–117 The Coombe in 2012 and since then has hosted more than one hundred and forty shows. According to this hypothesis the exhibition space has been painted at least one hundred and forty times and the actual volume of the space shrunk with every layer of paint.

The exhibition 1001 Shows by Colm Mac Athlaoich and Damiano Curschellas understands itself as a moment within an ongoing program which includes works that echo past exhibitions.
