Needles in the Camel’s Eye

PRESS RELEASE: Needles in the Camel’s Eye is an examination of how images are intended to be read and further, how they are utilized and dispersed. Each of these artists employs external references that enable their work to be digested in a wide variety of manners. With the deployment of stylistic and pictorial tropes the artists convey meaning with simultaneous clarity and reticence, leaving their images as intentionally unresolved entities. While deftly navigating theoretical, technological and art historicaldiscourses the artists create networks in which to situate nuanced approaches towards production.

Being that each artist is well attuned to the roles images play in our increasingly visualized world, the viewer is intended to extract not a single but rather a multitude of meanings within a given work. In this the works operate as sites of potentiality and, in the context of the group exhibition, call upon themselves, the surrounding works and the gallery space itself as a means of furthering this potentiality.

Artists included:

Steven Baldi
Nina Beier
Andy Boot
Roe Ethridge
Sean Kennedy
Lucas Knipscher

Michael Krebber
Charles Mayton
Carter Mull
Pamela Rosenkranz
Anri Sala
Asha Schechter
Jesse Willenbring
Viola Yesiltac

It is now in its last week!
