Venetia Kapernekas Gallery is pleased to present Love Will Tear Us Apart, an exhibition of prints by 18 international artists and writers curated by Queen & Shaw.
For this project, the participating artists were asked to donate their interpretation of a love letter from their private collection to be reproduced as a limited edition print. Whether it was a photograph, a personal correspondence, or a found text, each work gives us a small glimpse of intimate moments traditionally reserved for private communication.
Each piece has been printed at 18 x 12 inches on a coated matte paper. Although many of the works themselves are simple and verge on being monochromatic the exhibition itself will be hung salon style both large facing walls of the gallery.
Queen & Shaw is a curatorial collaborative that seeks to support artists who work in all media while also promoting and supporting charitable organizations in need. A portion of all proceeds go to the charities specified with each project that we undertake. The chosen organization for this exhibition is the Harm Reduction Coalition. The Harm Reduction Coalition (HRC) is a national advocacy organization that promotes the heath and dignity of individuals and communities impacted by drug use.
