THERE IS NO THREAT - installation shots
New York, 24 March 2018 - THERE IS NO THREAT, a pop-up exhibition curated by Ashley Middleton, in collaboration with Float Photo Magazine and Triumph & Disaster, will be at 145 Chambers Street, #2, New York from 6-10pm on 24 March. The group exhibition includes the work of twenty-one artists, connected in an effort to better understand the space between representation and misrepresentation, and ways we move between the two.
Through photography, video, design, and installation, artists working within the US and EU come together to address the threshold of language - spoken, written, visual, gestural, architectural, etc. - and the threat of a frame. By attempting to define the unknown, and unknowable, we can become blind to the value of the undefinable, less comprehensible, forgotten, misplaced, different, “fake.” Language simultaneously builds and shatters.
The exhibition occupies a space in flux - an apartment in renovation, changing from one notion of home to another - and we find ourselves in between two moments of the same word. Same. Different. Compressed. In this space we have the potential to see the frame, shatter it, and build something new, grounded in care for the unknown and empathy for the unknowable.
Books and zines will be presented alongside the works of Eleonora Agostini, Widline Cadet, Joseph Desler Costa, Magali Duzant, María Elínardóttir, Nicholas Fraser, Yoav Friedländer, Michelle Gevint, Yvette King, Brandon Kruysman, Thomas Kuijpers, Sara Z. Meghdari, Lana Mesić, Ashley Middleton, Rehan Miskci, Nemo Nonnenmacher, Ayodamola Okunseinde, Masahito Ono, Daan Paans, Brian Palmer, and Dana Stirling.
