Exhibition Dates: August 10 – September 6, 2015
Showing nightly, sundown to sunrise.
During Garis & Hahn’s Summer closure; beginning August 10th through September 6th, the gallery will present a curated Summer Windows series. Each week, a different series of curated video pieces that span the abstract and experimental to cutting edge digital technology will be projected nightly on the gallery’s ground floor entrance windows.
Seth Indigo Carnes
Curator: Danika Druttman
Featuring artists and poets including:
Jonathan Grassi, Tim Fite, Ava Hu, Julien Levy, Chris Martin, Florence Montmare, Serkan Ozkaya, Zefrey Throwell, and Marshall Weber
The realtime window projection shows each artist responding to an existing visual poem in the loop, creating a constantly cycling stream of conversation over time. This mediated discourse is made possible by the combination of Poetics, a visual poetry app, and a customized tumblr created to receive and display compositions created by the artists with the app. View the archive of NYCorrespondence at http://nycorrespondence.tumblr.com.
100 Hours Per Minute
Curator: Catherine Paige Ross
At the time of this writing, YouTube’s statistics page states that 100 hours of video are uploaded every minute. 100 Hours per Minute is an interactive artwork that displays averages of multiple YouTube videos overlaid and played together. Visitors tweet their searches to @100_HPM using an algorithmically generated, one-time hashtag displayed on the installation’s secondary display.
Collision of Matter
Curator: Kristin Sancken
Erdos’ overwhelming visual experiences weave together reflections on nature, culture, technology, science and religion. Drawing from his mastering of glass techniques, as well as from historical, mythical, and personal sources, the artist constructs open narratives which results in a sensory overload for the viewer.
August 31-September 6
7 Deadly Sins
Curator: Kristin Sancken
Each day of the week Sancken will feature a different artist’s video loosely based around the 7 deadly sins: wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony. For this series, Sancken will focus on aesthetic subjectivity (rather than objectivity or narrative) as the key factor that defines video art while drawing a parallel between time, substance and sense of self.
Summer Windows extends Garis & Hahn’s program emphasizing artist- and curator-led projects that further public engagement. A previous window projection of Eric Corriel’s Salon Vidéo,shown in the gallery’s windows during its December/January break, proved a popular and unexpected opportunity for art viewing. Summer Windows is a continuation of that series during the gallery’s summer closure.
