|Back to other exhibitions|| A
contemporary art exhibition curated by Pierre Coinde and Gary O'Dwyer
at the:artist:network new york, 424 Broadway 6th Fl., New York, NY 10013 (at Canal St).
reception: Thursday, January 15, 6 to 8 pm
In this exhibition, it is the curators of the exhibition who are on display. Cutting out the middlemen/artists allows the viewing public to directly interact with them.
we felt compelled to eliminate the artist from the equation so as to explore
other criteria, e.g. exhibitions as a product of the curator's bias and
opinions with accompanying illustrative flourishes. Literally and figuratively
we hoped for a show that will speak for itself and be self evident.
meet the curators in person Thursdays to Saturdays, 2 to 6pm.
This exhibition is made possible thanks to Marc and Alexandra Hungerbühler.
