Mixed Greens is pleased to present Color Shift\, curated by Jordan Tate. This exciting group exhibition revisits the reductive aspects of modernism and explores its impact on contemporary artists. Through commi ssioned investigations into the resurgence of modernist/minimalist aestheti cs\, Color Shift is a refresh (v2.0) of the modernist approach to medium\, material\, and color. The seven participating artists address the resurgenc e of this inquiry and intentionally bring it to theĀ  foreground\, while cri tically investigating its lineage\, context\, aesthetic\, and contemporary function.
Color Shift acknowledges reframed investigations of color as a fundamental component to art making\, as well as the transience of color as it moves across platforms and devices. This dialogue is particularly re levant given the migratory nature of our image consumption and aims to ackn owledge both a fundamental difference in our understanding of color\, and o ur persistent/historical relationship to it.
Each artist has been aske d to address\, in some fashion\, these ideas of a (reductive) new Modernist inquiry as it relates to his or her practice\, and more broadly how the in fluence of canonical artists (Ellsworth Kelley\, Yves Klein\, Robert Irwin\ , Ay-O\, Barnett Newman) is manifest in the expanded field of contemporary work. The exhibiting artists have chosen to approach this work through a va riety of media ranging from installation-based works and paintings to video games and photographs.
In many ways\, this exhibition aims to address the increasingly complex visual field by following a multitude of strategi es laid out by the doyens of modernism. The apparent simplicity of these wo rks echoes the rich capability inherent in a sincere and pointed investigat ion of new materials\, aesthetics\, history\, and the contemporary milieu.
