In an elegant group show at Minus Space, "Neither Here nor There but Anywhere and Everywhere," curator Matthew Deleget has selected work that looks visually simple, but each piece tells a deeper story about camouflage, subterfuge, and the act of making art. Rooted in stripped-down Minimalist aesthetics and the work of the 1960s French Supports/Surfaces artists who focused on deconstructing the materials (canvas and stretchers) rather than creating an illusion with paint, the pieces in the Minus Space exhibition use materials as image, illusion, and metaphor.
