SUPERFRONT is proud to present ARTISTS WHO PLAY WELL WITH ARCHITECTS, a summer group show on view at the Brooklyn gallery through August 13th. The exhibition brings together 4 artists of disparate backgrounds who, nonetheless, share a common familiarity with practicing architects in New York City.
Curated by Mitch McEwen, Director of SUPERFRONT, with input from Lee Ping Kwan, architect at Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, and Mimi Zeiger, editor and publisher of loud paper, the exhibit emphasizes playful and tactile investigations of landscape, site selection, authority, and scale.
The resulting exhibit mixes astute games of narrative, word play, and humor with an irreverence for architectural gravitas. Sculptures, drawings, physical models, and instrument-like objects are on display.
