Parallel City

March 18 - April 15, 2017

Organized by Erik Frydenborg and Nick Kramer

Constructed to be an art-city in parallel with this city, Parallel City exists like the cities in books- as a continuous entirety and as a collection of vignettes. Discussion around Plato’s allegory of the cave, Italo Calvino’s invisible Venice, and Thomas Pynchon’s bizzaro California transformed in to a conversation about sight, fingers, politics, and ultimately, subjectivity. Parallel City explores the idea of a city as a model for an art show and finds a collection of bodies.

A Mere Sum of Parts

February 25 - April 1, 2017

Organized by Sydney Croskery

Chad Attie, Sadie Barnette, Sarah Conaway, Sydney Croskery, Kim Fisher, Erik Frydenborg, Chyrum Lambert, Fay Ray, and Steve Roden. 

The artists in the exhibition A Mere Sum of Parts employ a series of processes, by either dismantling cultural artifacts or by fabricating their own, to create a new image. They collect, break, edit, tear, and combine in order to redefine and revalue, while not depicting the context or meaning of the original source. Through these processes, the artist subtly hints at the moment of derivation, adding a sense of the familiar, poetic, or personal. The artist Sydney Croskery organized this show of works by artists she admires to consider the different ways each individualizes their process.
