Mitchell-Innes & Nash's Summer Exhibition SLIP Opens Today
Mitchell-Innes & Nash has announced Slip, a group exhibition of seven contemporary artists whose work wavers between concrete reality and immaterial unconscious, creating an intermediate space in which material suggests alternate realities. Through the works in this exhibition, the viewer is invited to linger in these borderlands. In turn, one is offered an opportunity to extend his or her own individual experience and to expand the architecture of the gallery from an alternative vantage point.
Within contemporary life we are presented with many ways to diffuse our tangible surroundings, thoughts, and engagements through countless modes of readily available diversions. These invited distractions allow us to sidestep our physical environments and dislocate our individual experiences, if only for a moment. Within a lingering thought, or through a glance at our phones, the personal places we occupy are continually supplanted in ways that challenge our perceptions of what is real. This exhibition explores the boundaries of these forms of transmutation, and the singular ways in which art can alter perceptions and influence thought, behavior, and personality. Slip was organized by Bridget Finn.
