> DESCRIPTION

Franklin Evans is an artist whose room-sized, walk-in, 3-D "painting" drew critics' attention at last year's Greater New York show at PS1. According to Evans, his work "explores forms and ideas that consider the near-infinite cycle of recombination. Through painting, text, performance, and collaboration, I present open system environments that are both symbiotic and cannibalistic. Moreover, through the abundance of simultaneous open systems, I explore the shifting nature of knowledge. My work suggests the not-quite-finished, the in-transition, the nearly-emerging, the slowly-evolving, the near-end, and the move-toward-erasure." Evans will be speaking about his own past and current work in this presentation. Franklin Evans lives and works in New York.
