Project: ARTspace is pleased to announce Manufactured Color, featuring three perspectives on the contemporary production and use of natural and synthetic color.
Ranging across photography, works on paper and three-dimensional constructions, this exhibition creates a layered dialogue between the physical and aesthetic qualities of various pigments and dyes.
Molly Heron’s interventionist sculptures utilize plastics, such as genetic lab petri dishes, that have been redirected from their predestined journey to the landfill and filled with discarded latex house paint colors from big-box hardware stores.
Mallary Johnson’s paper weavings and collages ritualistically re-establish a direct connection with plant-based pigment sources and foreground an intimate, hand-made approach toward production.
Neil Marcello’s photographs of synthetically colored candy set within industrial tableaus offer a whimsical record of human ingenuity and its footprint in the wake of our manufactured existence.
Through the juxtaposition of the artists’ processes, this exhibition offers a unique look into the reclaiming, cultivation and critical examination of color in the 21st century.
Refreshments will be served.
Travel arrangements to New York will be the responsibility of each individual.
