About

This group exhibition explores romance in the 2020s through immersive installations, sculptures both miniature and gigantic, and vibrant, sometimes monumental painting bursting with color and movement. Situated at 25 Kent, a new construction just off the Williamsburg waterfront, A Romantic Comedy plays with ideas of courtship, domesticity, and the workplace—what society presents to the world versus what is hidden. The exhibition features over 50 works of art created by over 25 international and local artists.

Highlights include:

● a 5,000 sqft. curatorial centerpiece, envisioning an eccentric domestic space

● a full-scale, life-sized recreation of an oppressive, dystopian office environment

● a hyper-realistic miniature white cube gallery space with a micro-exhibition inside

● a light sculpture spelling out the word Moonlight with the image of the moon as its backdrop

● a video installation exploring the darker side of consent

● several immersive artworks, large scale sculptures, and interdisciplinary projects

About

POST-EARTH focuses on artists working with concepts of nature, structure, and meaning in a new political climate. The trends of proposed 2018 governmental budget cuts to such agencies as the National Parks Organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency poses the question of what value does nature and the environment now hold in the modern world, especially as the very scientific structures and data created to protect and monitor the land is now under question?

The artists in POST-EARTH are working in a range of disciplines from drawing, sculpture, mixed media, to site specific installations. Their work explores our existence in the world, the physical structures we create to work with the land and our infrastructure, and their understanding and observations of the natural world.

About

There is a strange absence when it comes to the work in New & Improved. The works in this exhibition capture the paradoxes that emerge when our technologies simultaneously bring us together and push us further apart. Artwork incorporating virtual reality, digital prints, sound, video, and sculpture captures the effects of accelerating mediation of how we experience the world.
