Blind Cut: Curated by Jonah Freeman and Vera Neykov
Jan 19 2012-Feb 18 2012
Marlborough Chelsea is pleased to present "Blind Cut," a group exhibition curated by Jonah Freeman and Vera Neykov. The works included address diverse notions surrounding the themes of fiction or deception. This collection, spanning several generations from Dada to the present, poses questions regarding identity, authorship, originality and reality. The practices and methodologies range from: depictions of fictional places, imagined personas, inaccurate histories, invented language, urban utopias and complex, unrevealed material gestures. To accompany the exhibition, Blind Cut, curators Jonah Freeman and Vera Neykov have selected a series films that will be shown on a loop in the following order: Luis Buñuel, "Land Without Bread," 1932, 28 minutes; Bruce and Norman Yonemoto, "Spalding Gray’s Map of L.A.," 1984, 27:40 minutes; Antek Walczak, "Dynasty," 1998, 49:52 minutes; Gabriel Lester, "The Big One," 2011, 14:14 minutes; Adina Popescu, "Jeremiah," 2011, 10 minutes.
