A&R is pleased to present Almost Something, Not Quite Nothing… an exhibit that omits curatorial thesis in favor of free association and intuition. The exhibit draws from Harald Szeeman’s assertion that “in order to entertain certain ideas we may be obliged to abandon others upon which we have come to depend.”
In Almost Something, Not Quite Nothing… the constraints of curatorial authorship are discarded in an effort to grant each artist autonomy in a context void of thematic categorization. The works included encompass representation and abstraction in a range of mediums. Despite the varying aesthetics and strategies employed by each artist, an undercurrent of humility permeates the exhibition.
