Artists from the Two Coats of Paint Residency Program
Opening reception: February 2, First Thursday, at SEMINAR Gallery in DUMBO, 6-9 pm.
Two Coats of Paint has the unique privilege of curating an exhibition of the seven artists from across the United States who have participated in the first year of our residency program. Founded in 2015, the goal of the program is to provide short-term studio space where artists based outside the NYC area can invite curators, other artists, and gallerists to view and discuss their work. The exhibition, curated by Sharon Butler and Rachel Farber, aims to be an investigation of our nation, illuminating the structural relationships among three elements – Land, Mind, and Country.
Briefly, land is a raw material of country, and country is an indispensable element of mind. The three elements are not practically divisible, but rather are constructed, perceived, and interpreted in coordination with one another. While land can exist and function in a natural state, it also can be enhanced or destroyed by human action that the mind conceives and executes. Country comprises not only land so altered or maintained, but also intellectual and psychological features of national unity and exclusivity.
