Particular Pictures is a group exhibition curated by New York based artists Joshua
Abelow and Emily Ludwig Shaffer. The title is lifted from Twin Peaks when Agent
Cooper is describing the mysterious specificity of pictures that appear in dreams.
There is a surreal, open-ended narrative suggested by the arrangement of the works
throughout the space. Artists included are both established and emerging, and the
works span four decades.
Do you know where dreams come from, Harry?
Acetylcholine neurons fire high, voltage impulses into the fore-brain. The impulses
become pictures, the pictures become your dream. But no one knows why we choose
these particular pictures.
