FORM ART IN COLLABORATION WITH WHITE BOX
CURATED BY ISAAC ADEN AND ANNA HARRAH
OCTOBER 18 – OCTOBER 27, 2011
White Box is pleased to announce WALLmART, an exhibition in response to the public outcry occurring on Wall St. and around the world. According to David Brooks’ editorial in The New York Times on October 18, 2011:
“(The majority of Americans) are focused on the fundamentals. They say that repairing the economic moral fabric is the essential national task right now. They are suspicious of government action in general, saying that government often undermines this fabric. But they support specific federal policies that nurture industriousness, responsibility and delayed gratification, like spending on infrastructure, education and research. They distinguish between the deserving and undeserving rich.”
WALLmART addresses the sentiment expressed in Mr. Brooks’ editorial, such as the loss of control of our economic structure and the rupture of our current value systems. The artwork seeks to formulate a more soulful mode of social exchange.
We invite all occupants and non-occupants to gather at White Box in solidarity with international efforts to redistribute resources and proclaim equal rights to all global citizens.
White Box is a 501-C3 non-profit art space with a history of presenting a polemic program. The last exhibition was a presentation of the subversive Chinese dissident, Ai Wei Wei. (re:)FORM ART presents emerging artists and recently presented No Comment, an exhibition on Wall St. directly across New York Stock Exchange, as well as 99% ART! at the Chelsea Museum.
Artists: Isaac Aden, Daniel De Paola, Christoph Draeger, Gianluca Fellini, Peter Fend, Rainer Ganahl, Jeffrey Hargrave, Josh Harris, Erik Hendrickson, Christian Hooker, Ray Kelley, Igor Molochevsky, Mark Lombardi, Alfredo Martinez, Paola Ochoa, Max Nova, Nemanya Valjarevic and Marcos Zotes.
