Add event to my calendar

As part of the gallery’s ongoing effort to promote CIA alumni, Reinberger Galleries will invite 16-20 artists in an exhibition to explore the diversity of urban/city-based art colonies, the growing enclave of CIA artists and designers living in Brooklyn and Cleveland. The exhibition is scheduled to take place later this year, November through December 2012.

The dynamism in selecting a diverse and talented group of former students serves to underscore the phenomenological experience of ‘place’, not site-specific, but formally and thematically. And there are easily familiar indicators and contradictions, so to speak, sometimes taxed with elegant and stylish, anarchic and informative depiction. The exhibition’s central narrative is an entanglement of stories, personal iconography, decoded metaphors, and current events capable of enriching the viewer’s experience of contemporary art.

The majority of participating artists will provide different models of self-representation and self-organization. Some are more introspective, and very personal. Not surprisingly, these artists define a particular generation, a straightforward critique, genuine and deeply committed to works that traffic meaning between sound, text, and image.
