Summer Fling – The Barn Show @ Johannes Vogt, Jul 9 – 31

8 July 2016

The Summer Fling – The Barn Show group exhibition is on at East Hampton, NY, hosted by New York’s Johannes Vogt, opening July 9 and running to July 31.

Featuring work by the likes of Leah Schrager, Rafael Rozendaal, Ryder Ripps, Giovanna Olmos, Yung Jake, Michael Manning, Erika Ceruzzi and Greg Ito among others, the press release describes the show as a “short but intense affair”, perhaps mirroring the image culture it aims to represent via the object making methodologies of 20 multimedia artists.

This will be the second iteration of Summer Fling – The Barn Show, held in a historic barn in the East End village, with its exact location revealed via email at deanna@johannesvogt.nyc or direct message @johannesvogtnyc on Instagram.  There will be a range of works and media on exhibit, including those by American Artist, Jordan Kasey, Talia Link, Saskia Friedrich, Mario Navarro, Margaux Ogden, Umar Rashid, Rebecca Ward and more, all “translating digital tools into contemporary storytelling”.

See the Johannes Vogt website for details.**

Body Anxiety online, Jan 24

23 January 2015

The online exhibition Body Anxiety, curated by Leah Schrager and Jennifer Chan, goes live tomorrow, January 24.

Following an unmistakable trend – maybe better to use the word pattern or even a collective consciousnesses-like shift in thematics – of body politics in the emerging art scene, Body Anxiety brings together a group of diverse artists umbrella-ed perhaps only in their examination of “gendered embodiment, performance and self-representation on the internet”.

Participating in the exhibition are 20 artists whom have made a practice out of “female-empowering artworks”, including Hannah Black, Ann HirschGeorges JacoteyRandon Rosenbohm, and Faith Holland. Though the link to the site is still password-protected, the site should be open to the public once it goes live, and all the works will be available for viewing.
