Lower East Side Printshop is pleased to announce out of the chaos and darkness…curated by Courtenay Finn. This presentation takes Matthew Day Jackson’s print Metamorphosis as an inspiration to present new unique works on paper created by Golnar Adili, Shana Agid, Rachel Beach, Sandra Chi, Erin Diebboll, and Sadie Weis.
Borrowing a phrase from Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man for its title, out of the chaos and darkness…presents prints that investigate the ever-changing concept of the American Experience and the American Dream. Starting with Matthew Day Jackson’s artwork Metamorphosis, the artists in the exhibition use several printmaking mediums and a range of materials to address our complex connections to mythology, history, and society. Overall the exhibition conveys an overarching sense of transition and metamorphosis that characterize our current place in the world.
