Linchpin - Opening Reception

October 13, 2017
6:00 pm

Come join us for a some bites and beverages at SPACE 151 for the opening reception of Linchpin -- an exhibition of recent sculpture by Joe Ferriso, Conrad Guevara and Chelsea Pegram! This show is guest curated by Anna Nearburg & Evan Reiser and on view from October 13 - November 16, 2017. Presented by Levy Art + Architecture. The works revolve around a compositional point of tension which supports the “weight,” both actual and metaphorical, of its cumulative parts. This precarity exposes vulnerability in otherwise sturdy objects, resulting in dynamic, architectural constructions tottering on the brink of total dissolution. They appear ready to unravel, a game of Jenga at its penultimate moment. Each of the artists works primarily with common building materials, relying upon rigid, structural elements which belie the softer, more playful, and subtler aspects of the works. This dichotomy is achieved through delicate engineering and a deft use of gravity. The “linchpin” in these sculptures is the point at which they achieve balance and where art-making intersects with ontology, philosophy and mathematics.
