440 Gallery Presents Another Landscape Show, curated by Peter Gynd
Another Landscape Show, curated by Peter Gynd
February 21 to March 31, 2013
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 21, 6:00-9:00 PM
Artist Talk: Sunday, March 17, 4:40 PM
Presenting new works by Jennifer Williams and Jason Varone, Another Landscape Show features work operating outside the canon of the traditional landscape. Working with imagery and media that investigate the underlying anatomy of a landscape, Williams and Varone emphasize the engagements, interactions and the culture of change that naturally take place in a landscape; revealing these to be more indicative of a place’s identity than its formal structure.
As a means of understanding the fundamental makeup of a place, Williams and Varone each combine traditional techniques with new media in innovative ways: utilizing large-scale photography, collage, Twitter feeds and various digital processes. Each resulting work provides a unique exploration of the evolving relationships between a place, its essence and its ideal.
The 440 Gallery is located at 440 Sixth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn, between 9th and 10th Streets, and is convenient to the F, G, and R subways. The gallery is open on Thursday and Friday, 4-7 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 11 am – 7 pm, or by appointment.
