Opening reception of Little Big Show, presented by Apostrophe NYC and Mana BSMT Saturday July 15th 5pm – 10pm.
Little Big Show is a group exhibition that investigates mitigated experience and its effect on viewing art in a post-digital era. The project was conceived and produced by Apostrophe NYC, featuring works by Base 12—a group of twelve New York City-based emerging and experimental artists working in a quasi-collective, currently in residence at Mana BSMT. Little Big Show critiques assumptions of virtual versus “real” representation by positing two allied narratives in sequential galleries: the first in an exhibition of miniature digital reproductions, the second in a series of original artworks. Encapsulating a world enthralled with virtual interpretation through social media, Little Big Show challenges our notions of representation by interrogating the value of the analog, unmediated experience.
BASE 12 ARTISTS:
Caslon Bevington, Ryan Bock, Morell Cutler, Alana Dee Haynes, Charlie Hudson, Kolter Hodgson, The Love Child, Julia M. Powers, James Rubio, James Reyes, Bruno Smith, Sei Smith.
