#YOLO as a functional proposition in painting + techno in group show CORE​ ​REMISSION at Berlin’s g_rund, Sep 30 – Oct 26

28 September 2017

The CORE​ ​REMISSION group exhibition is on at Berlin’s gr_und, opening September 30 and running to October 26. 

Curated​ ​by​ ​Penny​ ​Rafferty and with a musical​ ​score​ ​by​ ​Kashev, the show includes work by Maximilian​ ​Arnold,​ ​Marco​ ​Bruzzone,​ ​Stefan​ ​Behlau,​ ​Zander​ ​Blom, Jessica​ ​Groome,​ ​ David​ ​Gaupp-Maier,​ ​ ​Nicholas​ ​Pittman,​ ​Johannes Mundinger, and more.

Through the mediums of painting and techno, the exhibition will bring together work that explores abstraction through the concept of YOLO. The press release, a text musing on these ideas and written by Rafferty, notes the exhibition “by its very nature is temporary and queer, much like gossip, thus it remains a functional proposition. Be it a colour field or a re-verb the process of abstraction is ultimately an extension of the customary room with a view, a suicide of the now, a stage-death that just stood up for the encore. #YOLO.”

Other participating artists include ​ Juliana​ ​Cerqueira​ ​Leite,​ ​Duncan​ ​Passmore,​ ​Mickael Marman,​ ​Marlene​ ​Stark​ ​and​ ​Jonas​ ​Schoeneberg.
