SIGNS ON THE ROAD

Winkleman Gallery, 621 W. 27th Street, Chelsea, New York
An archival exhibition of images collected from over 100 artists, that gives prominence to objects, imagery, fragments of text, quotes, that may reveal no direct connection to these artists' practice, but possess an engimatci, resonant meaning.

The exhibition is a collaborative work organized by Workshop G: Mike Ashkin, professor of art at Cornell, artist Leslie Brack of Ithaca, NY, and Brooklyn, and Joshua Geldzahler, Cornell staff.

PRESS RELEASE

For this exhibition we collect such material from over a hundred and fifty artists, each invited to submit a single-page digital file to be printed on an 8×10-inch sheet. This small archive will be handed over to three curatorial collectives, each of whom will mount a treatment and exhibition in the diminutive (10-foot by 10-foot) Curatorial Research Lab at Winkleman Gallery. Despite the collection's necessarily small scale, we hope for a different order of insight than can be derived from primary artistic production. What if, for a moment, we treat such secondary material as primary? We are curious to see what tentative and comparative understandings can be drawn regarding a collective sensibility of the moment. Could organizations of this archive serve as signs on the road toward something beyond its constituent parts?
