We are pleased to invite you to Shifting Sensorium, a group exhibition that explores shifts in meaning, representation and experience in art that is perceived through different non-visual senses. What new languages can be conceived when we focus instead on the other senses: olfactory, gustatory, tactile, haptic, and aural to break free from the visual representation that functions within the image or behind the lens?
The opening reception for the exhibit will take place at 319 Scholes in Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, May 26, 2011 from 6:30pm to midnight. The exhibit will be on view throughout the weekend until May 29, 2011.
Participating Artists: Yonatan Ben-Simhon Mercedes Blasco Matt Ganucheau Manuela Garreton Yin Ho Jack Kalish Marko Manriquez Eric Mika Don Miller Geetha Pedapati Kimi Spencer Saraswathi Subbarman Felisia Tandiono Alex Vessels
The work by these artists propose to open a dialogue that focuses on the experiential process (rather than focus on the object) and to question a pedagogical bias centered around the visual sense. What are the artistic possibilities for re-materializing and translating a project from one sense into another?
Curatorial Committee: Georgia Krantz (Guest Curator) Marko Manriquez, Felisia Tandiono, Joshua Clayton
