+1+1 Artist Collective Presents
 
“Of an Urban Nature”
A Pop Up Exhibition at Theodore:Art


56 Bogart Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn
October 28 – November 13, 2016
Friday-Sunday 12-6pm


Opening Reception: Friday, October 28, 6-9pm

Organized by artist collective +1+1, “Of an Urban Nature” is a pop-up exhibition at Theodore:Art that speaks to a variety of issues concerning artists who have had long practices in greater NYC. Some of the artists in this show mine their creative inspiration from the urban hive and landscape, others live in the city but frequently gain insight from nature and have created a hybrid visual vocabulary. Others still have left the city to live in more rural settings but acknowledge and appreciate the mark of the metropolis on their work.

An experiment in co-curation, the six founding members of the collective have each invited another artist and those in turn have each invited one more artist to participate. The exhibition includes a total of 18 artists exhibiting sculpture, painting, ceramics, works on paper, textile works, performances, projected video – all of which together creates an unexpected yet cohesive and dynamic take on what it means to balance urbanity and nature.

+1+1 is an artist collective founded to expand creative connections, encourage artist-driven curatorial experimentation, and spark cross-practice dialogue and collaboration. +1+1 strives to foster artistic trust, inspired risk-taking and shared curiosity. Founded by artists Janice Caswell, Heather Cox, Beth Dary, Susan Jennings, Christy Speakman, and Katarina Wong, +1+1 has hosted numerous private events over the past five years and is now extending their focus to more public exhibitions and events, including participation in last year’s Satellite Show during Miami Art Week.
