Narrative Sequences
January 20, 2010 - April 3, 2010

Flyer, detail from City of Salt

Organized by Maddy Rosenberg, Artist

This exhibition will focus on work that creates a sequence of images that leads from one to another as a literal or an implied narration unfolds. By this narrowing down to a single aspect of an artistís book, Rosenberg is able to broaden the varieties of how artists explore telling a story, through form and content. For each of these artists in these works, a narrative emerges through the relationship of the previous to the following. They explore various commentaries on societies through who we are as a whole or as individuals, through personal experience or as participants in a broader culture, in an explicit way or a more abstract dance of natural forms.

Participating artists include, Christoff Baron, Zane Berzina, Chris Bierl, Jay Bolotin, Sang-ah Choi, Beatrice Coron, Bill Creston, Kahn/Selesnick, Ben Katchor, Rachel Lumsden, Rafael Mundi, Heidi Neilson, Julia Schmid, Karina Skvirsky, Simona Soare.
