Curated by Michael Mahalchick
Andrew Edlin Gallery, New York
January 16 – February 28, 2015
Opening Reception: January 24, 6-8 pm
Many of the artists included in Vis-à-vis create their work at the Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland, California. The Creative Growth Art Center serves adult artists with developmental, mental and physical disabilities. Vis-à-vis situates their work within the broader art community in a way that allows viewers to approach all of the work in the exhibition “face-to-face,” on equal footing, without regard for the artist’s perceived status while highlighting the commonalities inherent in all artists depicting aspects of the human condition. Conceived as mixer/social/party for a community of disparate artists, Vis-à-vis invites everyone to come as they are.
Vis-à-vis features the work of Ying Ge Zhou, Huma Bhabha, Kim Clark, Ion Birch, Aurie Ramirez, Elizabeth Jaeger, Dwight Mackintosh, Jeff Schwarz, Terri Bowden, Willem de Kooning, Sherrie Aradanas, Luciana Achugar, William Scott, Marcos Rosales, Donald Mitchell, and Paulino Martin.
Artist reception and a performance of Luciana Achugar’s “The Pleasure Project” on Saturday, January 24th from 6-8pm.
