What’s the Point? | Group Exhibition

What’s the Point?, a group exhibition featuring geometrically themed assemblages, paintings, photographs and works on paper by 19 emerging and established artists opens Wednesday, June 27th, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

What’s the Point? examines the use of geometrics in contemporary art making, from its emergence in New York during and after WWII to today’s new generation of artists, who are challenging themselves through the use of non-traditional mediums and materials. It is this trajectory of artistic practices, which lifts geometrics from pure line and shape to question and ruminate on contemporary life, that the exhibition seeks to explore.

The exhibition features work by: Josef Albers, Ky Anderson, Jordan Bernier, Andrew Brischler, Christian Chaize, Matthew Craven, Corey Drieth, Jessica Eaton, Ellsworth Kelly, Gregory Krum, Sol LeWitt, Carrie Marill, Jason Middlebrook, Laura Newman, Devin Rutz, Joel Shapiro, Jessica Snow, Mia Taylor and Michael Zelehoski.

The exhibition will be on view through August 4th, 2012.
