The Walsh Gallery
presents “Untitled,” a group exhibition curated by Jeanne Brasile and Jennifer Graham-Macht. The exhibition consists of artwork that ponders notions of “nothingness” through subject matter, materials or both. Simultaneously, “Untitled” also poses questions regarding the roles of the artist, curator, viewer, gallery and the art object in creating meaning. As the title limits context, the format of the show also limits the role of the curators. Participating artists were given access to the process of selecting additional artwork and artists, thus restricting the role of the curators’ tastes and preferences -- validating their artistic voice during the act of creation as well as the process of influence in releasing that information to the viewer.
Participating artists include Arianna Carossa, Joseph Farbrook, Darren Jones, Maciej Markowicz, Chris Radtke, Joseph G. Sabatino, Travis LeRoy Southworth, Dmitry (Dima) Strakovsky and Eric Valosin. Much of the artwork is site-specific, necessitating a more collaborative framework for curatorial and artistic practice. The site-specificity of many of the artworks also heightens awareness of the gallery environs. Programming includes a performance and question and answer session with artist Dmitry (Dima) Strakovsky on Wednesday, January 23rd from 2 to 3:30pm and a Curators’ Talk and Gallery Stroll on Thursday, January 31st at 7pm. All events are free and open to the public.
