“Members Only” Con Artist Collective Group Show
AT: Superchief Gallery at CultureFix
Con Artist is pleased to announce its unveiling of the group exhibition, Members Only at CultureFix. The show features artists from the Con Artist collective under the curatorial theme of the self nude, and drawing inspiration from the exhibition style of the Academic Salons of 1800’s France. Whether they chose to flaunt what they got, or leave more to the imagination, the members invite you into a private show. This will undoubtedly be one of this summer’s most stark, genuine, and uncomfortably honest exhibitions. The nude is a trope figure in art history, acting as subject and metaphor. For whatever reason we do this: necessity, narcissism, a quest for deeper understanding, even boredom...The results are sure to be telling. We Con Artists stand here in the buff, but stand for so much more.
Con Artist is a collective of over 100 artists based out of the Lower East Side, founded by Brian Shevlin. Con Artist is a Gallery upstairs, shared workspace below. Their mission is to promote emerging artists, providing a space and community for growth and exploration in the arts. Members Only was organized by artist Sessa Englund.
