Co- Re-Creating Spaces
November 11, 2012 through January 5, 2013
Co- Re-Creating Spaces surveys how artists are questioning and subverting existing contexts or spaces and contributing to their re-imagining and re-creation. The exhibition recognizes that “reality” itself can be both art medium and art object, and speculates how developments in the virtual and the actual might affect one another.
The exhibition will include works by Morehshin Allahyari; Nadav Assor; Amy Balkin; Aram Bartholl; Zanny Begg & Oliver Ressler; Linda Bilda; Irina Botea; Martha Colburn; eteam; Cao Fei; Yevgeniy Fiks, Olga Kopenkina, & Alexandra Lerman; the Institute for Wishful Thinking; Cassandra Emswiler, Kristen Cochran, & Greg Metz; Martha Rosler; Dread Scott; the Yes Men/Steve Lambert; and Karen Weiner, with Celia & Frank Eberle. Curated by Carolyn Sortor & Michael A. Morris.
