> DESCRIPTION

MOTI HASSON GALLERY is very pleased to announce the opening of intransit, an exhibition featuring 30 artists curated by Omar Lopez-Chahoud. The exhibition runs from July 10 to August 30, 2008. Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, July 10, from 6 to 8 pm with a performance by Micki Pellerano at 7:15 pm.

intransit brings together 30 artists working in different media such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, film and video. To deal with the cracks in the urban landscape and its decay, the artists have built cross-sections of ecological, racial, and identity issues as metaphors. These meditations, rife with ethnographic, historical and natural symbolism, help to reinforce a position amidst surmounting struggles — for instance, the fight against global warming and the disappearing ideal of the globalized world — to assert their multi-faceted voices and identities. This show presents a dynamic look at today's society, a complex and poetic visual journey.

ABOUT THE CURATOR
Omar Lopez-Chahoud received MFAs from Yale University School of Art in New Haven, CT and the Royal Academy of Art in London. As an independent curator, his exhibitions include "Never Never Land" (University Gallery, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, FL and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tampa, FL); "Hash Brown Potatoes" (Smack Mellon, Brooklyn, NY); as well as a curatorial project in connection with "Crossing the Line" (Queens Museum of Art, Queens, NY), among others. He is one of the founders of The Brewster Project, a program of site specific installations in the town of Brewster, NY (2001-2002). Omar has also curated exhibitions at Cuchifritos and Artists' Space, both in New York, and has written essays for several publications including the catalogues for Dynasty (2006) and Rewind/ReCast/Review (2005). He has participated in curatorial panel discussions at Artists' Space; Art in General; P.S.1; and The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. He was a guest critic at Art Omi in 2007.
