I’m in two shows that open this Friday night as party of Greenpoint Gallery night. It should be a great night in Brooklyn!
Calico presents its first juried group exhibition:
“#throwbackthursday / #flashbackfriday”
September 13 – October 4, 2013
opening reception: Sept 13, 6-9pm
jurors: Scott Chasse, founder/director of Calico Brooklyn
and Hrag Vartanian, editor-in-chief & co-founder of hyperallergic
this opening coincides with Greenpoint Gallery Night
With “#throwbackthursday / #flashbackfriday”, Calico asked artists to consider these questions: As artists, are we as willing to share images from our potentially cringeworthy artistic pasts? Could the older work be a “younger, hotter” version of its modern counterpart? Perhaps there is an outright cohesiveness in one’s work that has withstood the test of time..?
After sorting through over sixty submissions, a group of artists were chosen based on the interesting relationship of old work vs. new work. The exhibit will feature both old and new, and invites the viewer to search for similarities, differences, trends, and departures.
Exhibiting artists include: Adams Puryear, Charles Wilkin, Eric Lee Bowman, Lauren Silberman, Marcia Cooper, Mark Mann, Rachel Farmer, Samuel Baumel, Stacie Johnson, and Thomas Buildmore
