Summer Group Show, 2016
The Downtown Art Center (DAC) Gallery is pleased to announce a summer group show which brings together twelve distinctive practices which attend to shifting forms of corporeal, architectural, and socio-structural contours.
Hailing from a variety of studio and new media backgrounds, and employing a myriad of differing conceptual and aesthetic strategies, this select group of artists and their respective works speak to each other through their attention to the contingent relationships between human cognition and the precariousness of organic and artificial environments. Implicitly or explicitly, each artist’s practice touches upon an underlying and timeless sense of ambivalence in regards to their psychic and spatial relationships to the materiality of the world, negotiating an enduring yet seemingly urgent sense of estrangement between the spheres of order we construct and those that are beyond our control.
Exhibiting artists: Anna Bae, Carlos Beltran, Jieun Cha, John Cuevas, Meryl Engler, Jeremy Fraser, Shelley Kommers, Autumn Lundberg, Cody Lusby, Naureen Meyer,Francesca Quintano, Abby Sin
July 14 - September 1
Opening reception: July 16, 6-9 PM
