CUAC is pleased to present Dark Markets, an exhibition organized by Interstate Projects of Brooklyn, New York.
Dark Markets is a group show comprised of work by artists that use the Internet as a platform and foundational source for their work that exposes various online markets. The exhibition will feature the work of Ann Hirsch (NYC), Joe Brittain (NYC) and Cheon pyo Lee (NYC).
Video and performance artist, Ann Hirsch explores issues of young women?s sexual self-expression by using her past as an example for viewers to reflect on their own adolescence. CUAC will exhibit objects that are part of Hirsch?s larger ongoing project, Playground, in which she mines her adolescent memories and archives from the late ?90s, during which time she participated in a relationship with a 29 year old man via an AOL chat room.
Joe Brittain presents formally minimalist objects comprised of unconventional materials. In CUAC Brittain will exhibit two sculptures that contain chemicals sourced from India via eBay. The chemicals, melatonin (mixed with moonshine) and bovine dopamine (mixed with black ink), fill the vessels and result in a visually clean and sterile object.
Cheon pyo Lee?s work is an ongoing investigation of worldwide networks of currency exchange. Lee will show multiple sculptures at CUAC, the largest and most physically interactive of which is Chinese Waterfall. In this sculpture Lee has created a mechanized conveyor belt that allows participators to feed American dollar bills through a stream of money counters, which travel through a loop that culminates at the top of the stream, where the process can begin again but only with the participants action.
Interstate Projects focuses on presenting the work of young, emerging artists, and works to connect artists and ideas from across the country. The gallery is located in Bushwick at 66 Knickerbocker Ave, Brooklyn NY 11237. For further information visit www.interstateprojects.com.
