> DESCRIPTION
In the project space Joseph Hart will present a series of collage-based drawings. Hart’s wistful compositions generated with graphite, pen and paint, are reminiscent of Baroque landscapes and nod to other art historical works. For Priority Index, Hart has taken his cue from several trips to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where display cases, pedestals, frames, mantels, and other exhibition fixtures serve as anchors within the composition as well as metaphors for value, triage and importance. He further investigates belief and value systems, and how these ideologies relate to faith, human capacity, and mythology.

Born and raised in New Hampshire, Joseph Hart studied at Rhode Island School of Design before moving to Brooklyn, where he currently lives and works. His first solo exhibition at Galleri Loyal in Sweden was preceded by several group exhibitions at Alexander and Bonin, CRG Gallery, New York; Klaus Von Nichtssangend, Brooklyn; Allston Skirt Gallery, Boston, MA. Hart’s forthcoming project AIM 27 at the Bronx Museum of The Arts, New York opens this April.
