Processing: A Gowanus Swim Society Exhibition
January 18 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
an exhibition of current work by the eight members of the artist collective Gowanus Swim Society.
Katherine Gressel, Curator
“Processing” is defined as “a series of changes taking place in a definite manner,” including the “systematic organization, treatment or preparation of materials.” The artists in Processing all manipulate art materials through intentional, systematic procedures that sometimes incorporate chance. The resulting work teeters between representation and abstraction – teasing recognizable forms out of abstract ones or abstracting recognizable elements through stripping down or layering/obscuring. Specific works were selected for the exhibition that can trace the evolution of most artists’ work processes.
