The exhibition champions the accomplishments and impending struggles of international artist currently residing in New York. The gloom of administrative and quotidian preoccupations can make the life of artists brash and tiresome. Depending on the circumstances of each artist, achieving status and recognition in the US can injure the development of creativity. Status! Status! Status! signals a superficial difference between friends, which can be overcome.
It is then the goal of this exhibition to present friends with cordiality. A respect for amity results in a tolerance of stylistic dis-ambiguities. Therefore, we present work from individuals sharing in a common contingency. The works exhibited will radiate not only with the poetics of their appearance, but with commonalities that perforate the daily life of their authors.
