For Immediate Release::

PERFORMING ABSTRACTION presents sculptures and paintings by artists who traverse the boundaries of  performance and object making via painting and sculpture.


Art found in galleries (and its presentation) is a performance, too--and many of the artists in this group show engage with their object making in a performative or ritualistic manner. The performance of abstraction and of mark making in PERFORMING ABSTRACTION is a means to both conceal and reveal the artists’ relationships to  embodiment, sensuality, erotics, magic, narcissism, gender identity, immigration,  and gentrification, and economics  realities among a bevy of concerns.


Abstraction is a means of survival. We reduce objects/signs/marks to their simplest forms to make sense of the world--Or, we use this reduction (counterintuitively) to complicate, to hide meaning amidst the chaos. The artists presented in PERFORMING ABSTRACTION engage a range of strategies reflected in this group show’s selections.Some artists in this show split the difference, while others consider painting (specifically abstract painting) as a “polite” way to perform anger and absurdity. 


Performances, video screenings, and ice cream socials will bookend this critical exhibition curated by Ilona Berger and Luka Fisher.
