Everyone In Their Own Way
A Group Exhibition Surveying Gallery Aferro’s Studio Residency
Curated by Alex Scott Cumming and Jacob L Mandel
Arts Guild of New Jersey
1670 Irving Street, Rahway, NJ 07065
March 20th – April 14th 2016
Opening Reception Sunday March 20th 1-4pm
The dichotomy of artist to work is mirrored in the concept of artist residency to artist. The process each artist embarks upon defines their product, while their participation in a residency program defines the community and history of that residency. In today’s political and social climate, there are innumerable pressures to pursue a career in just about any field besides fine art, yet artists are compulsively drawn to work, to their need for expression. In the face of these pressures, artists continue to create. Gallery Aferro’s Studio Residency has provided artists access to creative space and community for over 10 years. The residency makes the artist’s process possible on a scale that might otherwise not be possible. Each artist works to define a vision of creativity and expression, while Gallery Aferro works to provide an outlet for these artists, both in terms of productivity and access to community engagement. Everyone In Their Own Way is a look into the reciprocating relationships between community, process, cultural content, and artist.
Approaching -273.15° C
November 13 – December 12, 2015
Reception November 13th from 6-9 pm
Curated by Michael Sarff of Over the Opening (OTO)
Absolute zero (-273.15° Celsius or 0°on the Kelvin scale) is the temperature at which all motion in matter stops. Until very recently this state of perfect stillness and corresponding order was thought to be unreachable. For the exhibition Approaching -273.15° C at academic, Keith Anderson, Marcy Chevali, James Cullinane, Daniela Kostova and Raphaele Shirley create art in regions that move from active and chaotic towards an ever distant ideal of rest and symmetry. Contained within the metaphors and physicality of this approach, the artists point towards a space that operates just before a perfect cold. It is in this endless state of almost null, the artworks in Approaching -273.15° C float suspended between transformation and resolution.
