"Six Degrees of Separation 2: The Inner Workings of Cold Contact"
2006-07-20 until 2006-09-09
Stux Gallery
New York, NY, USA United States of America

Stux Gallery is pleased to present part two of Six Degrees of Separation; a group exhibition curated by Joshua Altman, subtitled The Inner Workings of Cold Contact. This show addresses isolated moments of solitude and inner reflection; the exhibition also attempts to address societies’ seemingly inherent need to “look back,” and replay lost moments. The works included explore self-reflection, repetition, loss and the decay of cultural memory.

The featured artists investigate the aesthetics of cultural decay and personal loss by using both “low-tech” methods of application, as evidenced in the “hand work” of Xenobia Bailey, alongside works that utilize the most up-to-date technologies and special effects productions as in the videos of Mathilde ter Heijne. Through a myriad of modalities, the artists in this exhibition express both a personal and, in select cases, geographic sense of loss.

Utilizing found images and sound to reference lost childhoods, some of the artists rely on free association and humor in rendering work and reworking images that manage to be both whimsical and monumental by utilizing elements that ultimately relate to pop culture, fashion and pornography. Others reinvestigate the socio-political art of the 1920’s, 1940’s and current political events to empower the forgotten and marginalized majorities of society.

Participating artists: Xenobia Bailey, Graciela Fuentes, Ann Hamilton, Scott Hug, Anna Joelsdottir, Kosyo, Dean Monogenis, Maceo Montoya, Dennis Oppenheim, Ester Partegas, Ted Riederer, Marc Swanson, Mathilde ter Heijne, Ike Ude, Brina Thurston, Michael Timpson, Manabu Yamanaka
