Curated by Robert Andrade
Opening Reception: October 17, 2015: 8:00p.m.
ARCHIPELAGO consists of four artist working in varied methods and styles including sculpture, painting, photography, video and performance. Michael Ashkin’s current work is a series of spray-paint paintings or “Constructed Photographs” on cardboard that deal with the urban landscape, spatial politics and are reminiscent of early photography. Accompanying these works are small sculptures that point to a primitive future and a primitive past. Assembling various objects and utilizing mirrored surfaces with seductive textures, Roxanne Yamins’s sculpture introspectively addresses the idea of sexuality in commodity culture. Timothy Earl Neill’s video work consists of a firework sign set on a romantic horizon. All of which cause us to think about the difference between land and landscape and if the idea of tomorrow exist only in myth. Finally, there will be a guest performer whose work is focused on issues of race, state power and everyday experiences.
