SOME IMAGES FROM Description Without Place
Description without Place will be opens at 6 pm on June 22nd and is viewable from 10 am to 4 pm on the 24th - 26th.
The exhibition takes its title from the Poem by Wallace Stevens, as encountered in the context of Alain Badiou's theory of contemporary art: https://lacan.com/symptom12/drawing.html & https://www.lacan.com/issue22.php. The conflict between being and appearance takes the central place in his philosophy, a relationship particularly fraught in the history (and more so in the present) of representational art. It is this dynamic, as well as Badiou's declaration that the imperative of contemporary art is to speak the unspeakable, or give shape to that which exists as of yet unrecognized, that provides the framework for the presentation of works produced for the show or curated from the archives.

SOME IMAGES FROM InSitu
InSitu is a Woodstock based creative space: primarily a site of production in the fine arts of drawing, painting and sculpture, we also host shows and art related events. Formalised in 2019 out of a desire to create a independent/communal studio and exhibition space for a dynamic group of artists, and as a home for the Untitled teaching practice. Part of the vision was for an environment that invites interaction between artists and those with a desire to have art as a part of their lives, beyond the austere environments of the commercial gallery or the museum.
