DESCRIPTION

Quizotic is a group exhibition of over forty artists all connected by several degrees of social separation. The work on display will include paintings, drawings, sculptures, videos, and photographs.

The works are installed systematically, their locations based on the participants answers to a short quiz. Quiz questions were found and were chosen to isolate and honor authorial concerns and create useful subtexts within this eclectic mix, as well as obviate the need for curatorial input. This experimental installation can be seen as a walk-in graph of cultural, personal, and aesthetic concerns, and an exercise in autonomy.

The show will be held in a partially donated temporary project space at 1717 Troutman St., a studio complex in a renovated warehouse building on the border of Bushwick and Ridgewood.
