LOST and FOUND: Belief and Doubt in Contemporary Pictures
I’ll have work in this upcoming show, about which I’m really excited. The artists in the show are wonderful, and it marks the opening of a fantastic new residency program in Detroit. Please come out to the opening if you can make it.
From the press release for the exhibition:
“LOST and FOUND: Belief and Doubt in Contemporary Pictures marks the public launch of programming for PASSENGER , which will be a residency program and project space in Detroit. This show announces the vision, goals and type of ideas that PASSENGERseeks to support while we work towards establishing a permanent location. Showcasing the best local artists in the context of top emerging practitioners from around the country, LOST andFOUND looks at artists engaging with the concept of pictures in the era after the ‘death and resurrection of painting’ in which images in any traditional capacity have become impossible in a critical context. In light of this impossibility comes the demand for a fresh investigation. LOST and FOUND showcases a generation of artists that are aware of the historical critique of the language of painting/images. This awareness informs their practice and a traversal of the liminal space between belief/doubt structures their conceptual framework.”
The gallery is open Thursday-Sunday 11am – 7pm
