Stand4 Gallery and Community Art Center is pleased to host Karl England (b. 1975, Auckland, NZ), Tash Kahn (b. 1973, London, UK) and John Ros (b. 1978, New York, NY, US) for their new site-responsive exhibition, mechanical reproduction of dust. The exhibition will be on view from January 20 — March 03, 2018. The exhibition will open with a reception on Friday, January 19, 2018 from 6-9 PM and an artist discussion lead by curator, Charlie Levine (b. 1981, Birmingham, UK) on January 20, 2018 starting at 1 PM.
England, Kahn and Ros will specifically respond to the unique Stand4 Gallery space and each other as they build an immersive environment over the course of a three-day micro-residency. Materials will enter and leave the space as they are collected from the areas directly surrounding the gallery.
The exhibition will be realized based on the interaction and responses prompted by each artist on each other and in direct relationship to the gallery space. Each artist will respond to the space which will create a reactionary mode of working, responding to each other’s movements and interactions within the space, and building upon each others work. Visual materials will morph and build as the residency progresses, leaving the exhibition with a cumulative, process-based mixed media installation. The curated accumulation will result as an immediate response to time and space both specifically to the Bay Ridge community and more broadly to the transatlantic relationship of these artists.
