I recently received a note from Seth Adelsberger and Alex Ebstein at Nudashank, an independent artist-run space in Baltimore, about their new exhibition, “The Shape Of Things To Come.” The show features abstract, sculptural paintings and objects by Brooklyn-based artists Stacy Fisher, Tracy Thomason and Maria Walker. “Falling somewhere between sculpture and painting, works balloon off the walls, hang from the ceiling, sag in imperfect shapes and collectively posess a subtle animation that ties into the Transmodern aesthetic* while remaining grounded in abstraction and object art.”
I like the images of the show, but I wonder if the days of “casual, wonky posture” are numbered. Is this experimental strategy (which I love) beginning to slide comfortably into grad school schtick?

*The Transmodern aesthetic: Provocative work by cultural experimenters who defy traditional genres and embrace radical innovation through transmedia, clashes of organic vs. artificial intelligence, psychogeography, dislocation of consensus reality, real politic and collective cultural action.
