Whitehouse Curators Xenia benivolski adn Gregory Denton are curating an external exhibition at Double Double Land this fall.
CURATED BY GREGORY DENTON AND XENIA BENIVOLSKI
October 14-17 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday October 14, 7 PM- 11 PM
Double Double Land
209 Augusta (In the Alley)
In Slight Gestures, Xenia Benivolski and Gregory Denton bring together eleven artists whose processes begin with slight gestures, regulated actions and careful choices to create new objects that are strangely compelling. The pieces exude a sentimentality that inspires reverence and curiosity in the viewer. Why do we keep some things while we throw others away? How do you decide which piece should be seen, what is worthy of an au…dience? what is the minimal requirement for a gesture?
By using found and ready made objects, prints and collage, artists are building things that they feel warrant our attention and sentiment. Nikki Woolsey has created a family of objects that create new relationships by communicating in space, through gravity and placement. James Gardner rescued pieces of compositions from his studio floor otherwise headed for the garbage bin, Victoria Cheong presents a projection screen specific for video that has detached itself from its original function and Mark MacKinnon aesthetically alters his TTC Uniform in a minimal, performative gesture.
This exhibition features work by:
Mark G. MacKinnon
Jennifer Rose Sciarrino
OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, October 14 at 7:00pm.
The exhibition continues on Friday, October 15 and Saturday, October 16 from 11:00am – 6:00pm.
A commemorative publication will accompany the exhibition.
