PREVIEW: The Aesthetics of Matter, curated by Mickalene Thomas and Racquel Chevremont for VOLTA NY 2018.

VOLTA NY have teamed up with GalleryLOG to present a preview video of The Aesthetics of Matter, curated by Mickalene Thomas and Racquel Chevremont for VOLTA NY 2018. (see above)

Thomas and Chevremont will assemble The Aesthetics of Matter across a 2,600-square-foot space in the heart of PIER 90, an array of freestanding museum-style walls that afford and en- courage dialogue between artists, as well as a specifc focus in contrast to the traditional booth architecture and solo projects surrounding it.

“This exhibition will include paintings, sculpture, photography, video, text, and printed matter,” notes the co-curators. “The artists’ works are social and political through the form of collage, which has always been thought of as ‘a moment of crisis in consciousness’.”
