Con Artist presents ISO 216, a collaboration between artists from New York and London. Named in honor of the world’s most common paper size ratio which, like so many of global standards of weights and measure, is notably rare in the US, ISO 216 celebrates the cultural parallels and unique individuality of the United Kingdom and United States. The two nations are ethnically diverse, share a common language, and are each massive exporters of art and culture, but as their slightly different paper size ratios indicate, they don’t quite fit into the same box.
ISO 216 features ten Con Artist members and ten artists from the Test Space Gallery in London. Each artist presents two pieces in order to create simultaneous expositions on either side of the pond. The two shows will open concurrently on April 2nd and a live broadcast of each opening will be projected at the other opening to create a shared experience.
