> DESCRIPTION

DEAN PROJECT is delighted to announce, “Mirror on Mirror Mirrored” a group exhibition featuring the work of Barbara Weissberger, Karlos Carcamo and Nicholas Kashian.

 This exhibition presents paintings, sculptures, collages and digital prints based on interpretation from sources of information. The themes explored by the included artists reference global media, news, mass popular culture, personal advocacy and an affiliation to underground culture.

 Weissberger, Kashian and Carcamo each employ appropriation and manipulation processes including collage, assemblages, copy and paste imagery, and Photoshop in the development of the works exhibited. The use of these processes, diverse mediums and individual signature of styles have resulted in a substantial and compelling group of works presenting the viewer a unique visual experience of information morph.

 This exhibition is also a reflection on our own experience with information sources; it questions the validity of popular culture imagery as an accurate representation of contemporary society. Furthermore the physicality of the works in this exhibition also challenges our notions of perception and the understanding of originality.

 Barbara Weissberger divides her time between New York and Pittsburgh and was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2007, receiving her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Karlos Carcamo is based in New York and received his MFA from Hunter College. Nicholas Kashian is based in Chicago and received his MFA from the University of Illinois Chicago.

 The opening reception with artists will take place Saturday September 19th from 6 - 9pm. For additional information please contact the gallery at 718.706.1462 or info@deanproject.com
