NYSS Projects @ DUMBO: In Absentia

In Absentia

Exhibition Dates:
February 8 – 29

Opening Reception:
Thursday, February 8 from 6 – 8pm 

Curated by NYSS DUMBO Artist-in-Residents Char Healey and Anita Trombetta.

Is our work essentially Absence? So often, it acts as a stand-in or shadow-of or reference-to. 
A “without” is included.
Work that asks us to relate as corporeally equal.
Leftovers that our mind begs to categorize and retrofit into source or logic with some difficulty.
It presents its degradation and eventual dissolution.
It can feel fragmentary and even allude to the art “actual” as being elsewhere: a ghost of the prime work yet,
A work unto itself.
A reference of a reference.
A whisper echoed in a cave at the end of its reverberation.

Participating Artists:
John Fleming  
Gabriella Moreno
Georgina Arroyo
Kate Sherman
