Simone & Max from Arts+Lit Lab – February 8
Simone and Max are a collaborative duo whose work investigates the potential of the public screen as a mobilizing force to build empathy, action, and long-term responsibility. From audiovisual installations to objects and software, their practice leverages a hybridity of forms reflective of the degree to which contemporary life is mediated by screens. The duo are currently artists-in-residence at 100arts.
Evan Gruzis – February 15
Evan Gruzis is a multidisciplinary artist who received his BFA from the University of Wisconsin Madison and his MFA from Hunter College, NY. He has exhibited widely including solo shows at Deitch Projects, Nicole Klagsbrun, The Hole, The Journal Gallery and The Suburban, and group shows at David Zwirner, Museo D’arte Contemporanea Roma and the Weatherspoon Art Museum.
He translates simple imagery into a hyperrealistic wonderland by not only using a wide variety of mediums, but by recognising the high-art value of popular culture. His work reveals a unique view on the way we live and see one another.
