Stare into the maxed-out brightness: Paul Kneale + Toby Ziegler present After Image at Cassina Projects, Feb 28 – Apr 15

2 March 2017

Paul Kneale and Toby Ziegler‘s After Image exhibition at New York’s Cassina Projects opened February 28 and is running until April 15. 

Stare into to the maxed-out brightness of your smartphone, tablet, or monitor and hold your gaze there. Notice how its immediate surroundings become darker. Now turn away and close your eyes; 

Curated by Artuner, the project presents work by the two artists, which will explore ‘symbolic detritus’ that characterizes the afterimage, both physically and digitally. Looking at the medium of painting, and its relationship to future technologies, the show immerses itself in the reproductions of lenses, sensors, chips and screens.

The show is happening alongside a number of fairs in New York this week, including Independent New YorkNADA NY, and The Armory Show, running from March 2 to 6.

See our list of recommendations for a more comprehensive guide to the full week.

See the Cassina Projects website for details.**
