Opening Reception: May 9: 6-8pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, June 22: 4-6pm
Rock, Paper, Scissors is a group exhibition presented in partnership with The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (EFA). Featuring the work of C24 resident artist Seçkin Pirim along with EFA member artists Dana Levy, Cheryl Molnar and Suzanne Song, curator David C. Terry has gathered a collection that offers a multi-faceted investigation of materiality as a tool of expression, through the mediums of stone, paper and the technological processes that illuminate and transform them. This exhibition represents the launch of a series of partnerships between C24 Gallery and non-profit arts organizations, with the goal of elevating creative voices that have been traditionally marginalized or underrepresented.
Seçkin Pirim is an internationally exhibited artist living and working in Istanbul, Turkey. His conceptual sculptures explore form, color, and pattern. Working in a variety of media, his artworks examine the relationship between object and space, the dichotomy between nature and culture, and the line between art and design. In this exhibit, we showcase his works on paper that embody both technological processes and manual techniques, resulting in objects that are mesmerizing in their complexity as they simultaneously harken to the tranquility of the lengthy, handmade construction process.
The trio of EFA artists showcased in Rock, Paper, Scissors celebrates the elemental beauty of the natural world as they explore the dynamics of environmental destruction. Depicting both indoor and outdoor locations, the works as a collection lead viewers on a journey to discover our connections to the places we occupy in both time and space.
Rock, Paper, Scissors will run from May 9th to June 29th, 2019 with an opening reception held on Thursday May 9th from 6pm - 8pm.
An artist talk will take place on Saturday, June 22nd from 4pm - 6pm., co-moderated by EFA Studio Program Director Bill Carroll and C24's Deborah Oster Pannell, with artists Dana Levy, Cheryl Molnar and Suzanne Song.
