Curated by Jamillah James
NURTUREart is pleased to present The Order of Things, curated by Jamillah James and featuring artists: Lisha Bai, Leah Beeferman, Ethan Greenbaum, Elisa Lendvay, Demetrius Oliver, Allyson Vieira, and Joe Winter. The Order of Things considers the shift in our relationship to the universe in light of recent apocalyptic predictions. An acute awareness of time, as some wait with baited breath for “the end”, engenders a special attentiveness to space, materiality, and objecthood, with smaller details emerging and becoming foregrounded.
Either through their own experimental studio practice, or in how they visualize and aestheticize the passage of time, the artists in this exhibition address cosmological hierarchy from the bottom up, reiterating the impulse of subjects to understand their existence and the world through objects. The interplay of works, some of which use a scientific vernacular, underscores the phenomenological relationship between subjectivity, and perception, examining banality and the existential in equal parts.
NURTUREart will hold a closing reception for this exhibition: Fri. February 1, 7-9PM
