Exhibitions

spatial process / social form

Running from October 24, 2011 to November 25, 2011 in the Main Gallery

Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP) Selection

Curated by Walker Waugh, co-founder of WORK gallery in Brooklyn, NY and associate director of the Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York, NY

Featuring the artwork of Eric Ayotte (ericayotte.com/index.php), Yamini Nayar (www.yamininayar.com), and Ryan O’Connor (www.theriottemple.com/), this exhibition stages the exploration of social, political, and religious ambiguity through the deconstruction of space and historical references. The artists blur boundaries between media and use found materials to destabilize meanings.  Ayotte’s painting systematically deconstructs and reconstructs Associated Press photographs of international events.  Nayar architecturally re-imagines sites of urban decay in one photographic body of work while in another she photographs sets she builds in her studio from found materials.  O’Connor combines disparate “readymade” objects to create new cultural connections and alternate environments.
