Reception: Friday, October 19, 6 - 8 PM
site95 is pleased to present “Dead in August,” a group exhibition organized by Meaghan Kent and Sara Maria Salamone. “Dead in August” is part of a multi venue project that uses additional spaces in New York to create in depth exhibitions highlighting emerging New York based artists. The exhibition will be held at NYCAMS, New York Center for Art and Media Studies, New York.
This exhibition will feature work by a diverse group of 10 New York based artists whose practices all focus in the realm of abstraction. Interwoven with art historical references and ideologies, the sculptures, paintings, mixed media and site-specific installation aim to spark multi-disciplinary discussions with varied readings relating to contemporary themes in abstraction. These ten artists works are triggered initially with form and geometry, appropriation, the reduction of the representational, and interaction with art as object. Through the use of abstraction, these artists consider current influences and method making strategies in creating highly complex and engaging work.
Artists include: Nils Folke Anderson, Agnes Barley, Jude Broughan, Matthew Brownell, Peter Demos, Nathan Dilworth, Roberto Carlos Lange, Francesco Longenecker, Christian Maychack and Alexandra Posen.
site95 is an alternative non-profit organization established to present exhibitions for emerging and established artists in temporary urban locations. Drawing upon available space in major cities, site95 will present over five projects per year, each extending up to two months. The impermanent sites create a platform for artists and curators to present innovative ideas in different contexts and allow viewers to experience new work not native to their location. Exhibitions will offer openings, educational talks and tours, screenings, and performances. site95 also features the online monthly Journal with contributions by writers, curators, and artists.
The exhibition is free admission and open to the public.
Exhibition hours are Monday through Friday 10am – 5pm or by appointment. For further information please check site95.org and nycams.bethel.edu or email [email protected]
