NYSS Projects @ DUMBO: Container Shift
February 16, 2023 · NYSS in DUMBO
NYSS Projects @ DUMBO is pleased to present Container Shift, a group exhibition curated by Artist-in-Residence Erica Newton (MFA 2022). Featuring the work of ten artists, Container Shift inverts the typical gallery-viewing experience in that each work provides its own light source in a darkened room. This presentation offers a vast array of experiences through the interplay of light and shadow. By dissolving the white cube, Container Shift underscores the art show as an environment—one in which each piece stands alone, inviting the viewer in for a close encounter, an intimacy of exchange between oneself and the object. Simultaneously, the works are held together by the darkened room: they gather, as punctuated moments in dialogue, with one another and with the viewer inside the larger container of “artwork in a room.”
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 16 from 6 – 8pm.
Special Evening Performance: Thursday, March 2.
