OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, FEB. 7th, 6-9pm
EXHIBITION DATES: FEB. 7 - MAR. 8, 2014
Fowler Project Space is pleased to present Dead Ringer, an exhibition of new works by the San Francisco-based artists Seth Curcio, Bean Gilsdorf, and Julie Henson. Combining various forms of image-making and sculpture, each artist confronts the psychological distance between a photographic representation of an event and its physical reality. From Curcio’s visceral recreations of the iceberg that sunk the Titanic, to Gilsdorf’s flags that explore the symbolism of archetypal moments and materiality, to Henson’s amalgamation of images of cultural ideology, these works recontextualize iconic images and communicate the symbolic power of historical photographs, showing an incisive understanding of how images shape collective experience and the cultural memory of events.
Please join us for Dead Ringer’s opening reception on Friday, Feb. 7th from 6 to 9pm. The exhibition opening will be a part of the Winter Greenpoint Gallery Night that same night. Dead Ringer will be on view from Feb. 7th to March 8th, 2014. The exhibition can also be viewed during our open gallery hours on Saturdays from 12-5pm and by making an appointment.
