Alex Ito and Greg Ito are presenting joint exhibition The Order of Shadowboxing at San Francisco’sEt Al., opening September 25 and running to October 31.
Based in New York and Los Angeles respectively, the two artists will explore Descarte’s idea of “I think therefore I am” in the context of a perceived ‘inertia’ in oppositional forces dictating politics and the “phantom will”.
Working within their own distinct disciplines -whether it’s Alex Ito’s digitally printed portraits and a three-dimensional maquette or Greg Ito’s paintings and sculpture -each artist’s interests intersect at a preoccupation with intimacy at its core, either a corporately homogenised concept of one, or the “seduction of the romantic narrative”.
