Avant Guide to NYC: Discovering Absence

 

Curated by Sandra Skurvida at apexart, I am participating in this show. Avant Guide to NYC: Discovering Absence.

November 4 to December 19, 2009

This exhibition is a viewfinder trained onto the specific sites of the cultural fabric of New York City. The past, represented by the memory imprint of an artistic activity that occurred at a certain site, is “covered” by a current artwork focused on the same site. Through this double take, the past and the present collapse onto each other on a city map. Our intention is to draw precise and living connections between artists, their work, and environments across times — the strands of such connections weave the fabric of the exhibition.
