GROUP EXHIBITION at SPRING/BREAK Art Show
New York, NY
March 4 – 9, 2014
Curated for the 3rd annual curator-driven art fair SPRING/BREAK Art Show in the schoolhouse known as Old School on Mott Street in SoHo, Tracy Causey-Jeffery of Causey Contemporary and Amy Kisch of AKArt Advisory present Liminal Reclamations—focusing on the 21st-century dilemma of the fabrication of human/nature. This year the fair's PublicPrivate theme will explore the “high visibility of the self in the 21st Century every-day” and the balance between privacy and the “digital strip-tease” that average people are compelled to engage in. Some of the artistic practices to be explored include self-portraiture, the evolution of the "photo bomb," "jealous landscape photography," and digital spectatorship.
Liminal Reclamations features works by Michel Demanche,
Kevin Bourgeois, Marielis Seyler, Melissa Murray, Jamie Knowles, Steven Dobbin, Jordan Eagles, Mxolisi Dolla Sapeta, Paolo Buggiani, Robert Saywitz, Charles Heppner, Michael Tharp, and Zane York, which navigate the internal and external realms of culture and the spectrum of opportunities presented to us to perform—or be prescribed—who we are. The artists delve into acts of voyeurism, constructions of memory and sensation, domestication, mass media consumption and destruction, self-reflection, reclamation, and suffocation.
