In the project space Joseph Hart will present a series of collage-based drawings. Hart’s wistful compositions generated with graphite, pen and paint, are reminiscent of Baroque landscapes and nod to other art historical works. For Priority Index, Hart has taken his cue from several trips to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where display cases, pedestals, frames, mantels, and other exhibition fixtures serve as anchors within the composition as well as metaphors for value, triage and importance. He further investigates belief and value systems, and how these ideologies relate to faith, human capacity, and mythology.
