MINT is pleased to announce a group exhibition, MIDDLE, curated by our new Gallery and Creative Director, Candice Greathouse. The exhibition will feature new works in photography, video and sculpture from Georgia artists Meta Gary, Margaret Hiden, Brittainy Lauback, Trevor Reese, Christina Price Washington, and Patricia Villafane. The exhibition at Gallery 72 will run from November 21st, 2014 through January 16th, 2015, with an opening reception on November 21st from 7pm-9pm.
Middle is central. Middle is a position between two absolutes. Middle represents an unfinished chronology, an intangible point on a line that has a beginning and an end.
The works included in this exhibition serve as a visual dialogue of ideas that investigate notions of this middleness – inbetweenness and potentiality through material and process. The artists and works featured in this exhibition represent the middle through a variety of strategies conceptually and aesthetically. They resist concrete categorization and definition, offering instead a provoking ambiguity that prolongs and redefines the “middle”.
…from material to immaterial,
from form to formless,
from instrumental to mental,
from time to timeless.
Marina Abramović, 1989
