What do we turn to for meaning and solace? Looking at our own projections in Secular Icons in an Age of Moral Uncertainty at Parafin, Nov 30 – Feb 3

29 November 2017

The Secular Icons in an Age of Moral Uncertainty group exhibition at London’s Parafin opens November 30 and is running to February 3.

The show includes work that explores how we find ‘meaning or solace’ within certain objects and features Nathan Coley, Mimosa Echard, Simon Fujiwara, Sara Naim and Indrė Šerpytytė

Linked by indeterminacy, the multimedia installation looks at form and image-making and what is ultimately the driving force behind how we look, gaze and project meaning. The press release contextualizes  the works within “a time when the notion of belief is particularly fraught” and examines what it means to make work ‘now.’

Digital baroque + parafiction in Invisible Cities at Wallach Art Gallery, Apr 18 – May 20

18 April 2017

The Invisible Cities group exhibition is on at New York’s Wallach Art Gallery, opening April 18 and running to May 20.

Featuring 20 artists, the show includes work by Anthony Antonellis, Jillian Mayer, Carla Gannis, Lorna Mills and Indre Šerpytytė among others.

Borrowing its title from Italo Calvino’s 1972 travelogue, the exhibition sets out to explore the human condition, looking at “disparate themes and differing infrastructures, mediated systems, the parafictional, and the digital baroque, to describe the multiplicities of contemporary subjectivity.”

The gallery is part of Columbia University, where graduate students in the Modern Art: Critical and Curatorial Studies program, Page Benkowski, Taylor Fisch, and Georgia Horn have curated the exhibition in tandem with their research in ‘technological intermediaries.’

See the Wallach Art Gallery website for details.**
