DESCRIPTION

Bortolami Gallery is pleased to announce now I am quietly waiting for the catastrophe of my personality to seem beautiful again, and interesting, and modern, a group exhibition curated by artist Tom Burr. This exhibition will mark the first occasion that Burr takes on the role of curator. It will include work by Kaucyila Brooke, Jean Cocteau, Dan Graham, Ull Hohn, Hilary Lloyd, Sarah Lucas, Gordon Matta-Clark, Lucy McKenzie, Ken Okiishi, Elizabeth Peyton, Josephine Pryde, Mary Simpson, Dash Snow, J. St. Bernard, Charline von Heyl and Emily Wardill. The title is taken from Frank O’Hara’s poem “Mayakovsky,” in which O’Hara references Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky and suggests that the self is dependent on who we surround ourselves with, reflecting the multiplicity and fluidity of identity and authorship.
