Unfixed: New Painting
February 7 – May 30, 2015
Live Event: Februrary 20th
The artists in the exhibition unfix historic notions of what a painting should be. Their works are hybrids of old and new, familiar and surprising media and processes. Through this mix the artists find new ways to make, think about and view painting. The results range from abstractions derived from street and popular culture to computer-generated algorithms printed on canvas. Somehow, they are paintings while also beyond painting. In the spirit of the hybrid, Scott Kiernan and Victoria Keddie bring E.S.P.TV into the exhibition to interact in a multi dimensional platform. Using process to create a unique viewing experience.
