On December 12 the group exhibition “Absence” curated by Alexandra Leyre Mein opens at 201 Clifton Place, Brooklyn. Featuring works by Hedwig Brouckaert, Monica Cook, Dolores Furtado, Michelle C. Gevint, Alexandra Leyre Mein, Nicholas Missel, Matthew Stone and Seth Wulsin.
What do we leave behind? How do we give form to the nonphysical? Within our limits of perception, what can we trust? The selected works string together an expansive questioning of absence and awareness, conveyed into three-dimensional forms, through space or time. The dialogue between these works by eight international artists will happen on their common adoptive ground, in Brooklyn, New York. Absence Projects #0 defines a model for the continued and future autonomy of artists, creating our own space in the world.
Opening: December 12, 2017, 6pm – 9pm
