It Ain’t Fair 2011Materialism
The 2011 installment of this annual group show, now in its fourth year, takes on a thematic focus: materialism. The exhibition features work by over twenty artists, including: Justin Beal, Anna Betbeze, Ashley Bickerton, Peter Coffin, Dan Colen, N. Dash, Sam Falls, Michael Genovese, Luis Gispert, Angel Otero, Sara Rahbar, Ryan Reggiani, Bert Rodriguez, Amanda Ross-Ho, Aurel Schmidt, David Benjamin Sherry, Lucien Smith, Agathe Snow, Jessica Stockholder, Nick van Woert, and Aaron Young; including a live performance by New York-based artist Michael David Quattlebaum, Jr./Mykki Blanco, during the opening reception.
The theory of materialism, in modern philosophy, maintains that substance and matter are the only physical realities. Within the scope of contemporary art, many artists explore ideas of the intangible – intellectually, conceptually, and visually. Conversely, It Ain’t Fair 2011 aims to focus on the physicality of artwork, the matter that constitutes an object, and the new methods employed by artists toward approaching material.
