Pharmaka is pleased to announce a guest curated show "Brave New World." This exhibition opens May 3rd, 2006 and will run through Saturday July 1. Featuring works by Colin Roberts, Stanislav Orlovski, Margaret Nielsen, George Herms, Michael Rosenfeld, Anne Hars, Todd Gray and Seth Kauffman, this exhibition was curated by Heather Harmon and Nicole Dungao. "Brave New World" will also include a lecture series and panel discussion; exact dates to be announced.
Seeking to explore how different collisions in our present time are
visualized and dealt with by artists, "Brave New World" has a tone of
science fiction and surrealism using elements that are both foreign and
recognizable. The works explore the collisions between the human and the
natural, the animal and the human, the human and the prosthetic and the
natural and the synthetic. The visual images in "Brave New World" ask
questions that address the human condition but also have a sense of humor
about the world that engages the viewer. These artists present new ways of
looking at the world that relate to the satirical approach that Huxley had
in his novel of the same title.
PHARMAKA is a Greek word that means to paint or an artist's colors. It
also means a poison or remedy. The name was chosen because its roots are in
ancient Greece, the cradle of Western civilization, and it speaks to the
duality inherent in all things. The PHARMAKA ART has been incorporated as
non-profit, and will also include exhibitions that might otherwise fall into
the void between commercial Galleries and Museums.
