> DESCRIPTION

Starting from the premise that all art is inherently “haute” because of its cost, value and the way in which it is collected, displayed and distributed, Haute is a visual conversation about the qualities that define the exclusivity of Art.  Fashion, interior design and other “lifestyle” products have different tiers of value. The difference between mass-production clothing and high fashion is immediately apparent; however, these divides are not as obvious in fine art because anything outside the realm of high art is often excluded from even being considered Art.  Haute features the work of artists that use different strategies to recognize, challenge or disrupt this barrier.  Haute includes work by: Kevin Appel, Kate Bingaman-Burt, Delia Brown, Chris Christion, Nicole Cohen, Bart Exposito, Anton Henning, Jim Isermann, Eamon O’Kane, Melanie Pullen, and Ami Tallman.
