We are pleased to announce a new exhibition entitled Problematic,curated by artist Sessa Englund.
The exhibition demonstrates work that engages with art’s most paradoxical natures and will include works by members of the Con Artist Collective:Laura Tack, Ko Irkt, Michael Sharp, Miranda Nichols, Olivia Fox, Charles Allen, Chris Simon, Cody Oyama, Saroj Patel, Matsumoto Sanpo, Natania Frydman, Shaina Yang and Eric Steginsky.
Art inhabits a space in-between subjects: It embodies a reflection of the past and a creation of the future, a movement towards order and disorder within its own entity. Using this subject as a starting point, this exhibition deals primarily in the way in which contradiction and conflict within the artist can become inspirational to his/her path toward art-making that is investiga- tional, divisive and explorational.
The fifteen invited artists were asked to center their process on three contradictions which they perceive to be inherent in the contemporary practice of art: art as rejuvenator and self-destruc- tor, art as both dependent and independent upon consumerism, and art as both a heightening and an obfuscating agent in our attempt to perceive reality. The resultant exhibition displays a variety of work all speaking to the individual artists’ struggle with the common paradoxes of the artistic practice.
