Following the success of SPRING/BREAK, their satellite art fair coinciding with March’s Armory Show, directors Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori have moved forward with another project, titled “Transhuman,” to open during the Frieze Art Fair. “We were so engaged by the reaction to our little alternative art fair in March,” Kelly said in a press release, expressing hopes that “Transhuman” will be met with the same enthusiasm as their showing two months ago.
Like SPRING/BREAK, “Transhuman” will take place in the old school at 235 Mott Street in SoHo, and the emphasis will again be on the creative role of the curator. “Curating is a dialog,” curator Cecelia Stucker said, describing the working process with her fourteen recruited artists as an intensely collaborative process, “And I, like many of my peers and our predecessors, have been engaged in a conversation dealing with the struggle to define the meaning of life… I’ve posited a series of ideas on the subject to artists whose considerations I value and trust. The result of our dialog will be reflected in the pieces presented in ‘Transhuman.’” An additional twist in the exhibition is that the Los Angeles-based Stucker was asked to do her work entirely remotely, having planned and installed the exhibition exclusively through the telephone, email, and Skype.
“Transhuman” will include work by Nick Darmstaedter, Violet Dennison, Sage Grazer, Takashi Horisaki, Maia Ruth Lee, Brendan Lynch, Patrick Meagher, Jane Moseley, Garrett Pruter, Evan Robarts, Rachel Rossin, Kasper Sonne, Andrew Sutherland, and Peter Sutherland, and runs from May 6-27 at Schoolhouse Projects 235 Mott Street, New York.
