Have you been to Make, Believe yet? Make, Believe is combining the work of artists in The Maslow Collection and artists working with moving image. The artworks demonstrate the shift between stable, recognizable ground and the far reaches of the mind and the imagination. The moving image portion of the exhibition includes works by Basma Alsharif, Nazli Dinçel, Julie Harrison & Neil Zusman, David Haxton and M.M. Serra. Works from The Maslow Collection include works by Alice Aycock, Jennifer Bartlett, Mark Cohen, Hamish Fulton, David Haxton, Barbara Kasten, Martin Mull, Ellen Phelan, Robert Rauschenberg, David Reed, Dorothea Rockburne, Sandy Skoglund and Andy Warhol.
I went to Make, Believe with my friends, Annachiara and Carolyn, on Friday, and it was truly magical. I never really experienced moving image artwork, but I’m so glad I did! Every piece was so unique, from deeper social issues to experimenting with negative film, and each piece was great. My personal favorite was Nazli Dinçel’s Shape of a Surface. I really loved the technique used to create the film. I recommend that you go and check it out!
The curator gallery talk was rescheduled from February 7th to February 21 from 4-5pm. So, grab a friend, head to the curator gallery talk on the 21st, and check out Make, Believe before it’s too late! The work will be on display from January 26, 2018 – March 21, 2018.
