Get on the Block Opens Friday, May 13th

"Get on the Block", a show featuring Julianne Ahn, Matt Phillips, Travis LeRoy Southworth, Liz Zanis, TSA member Alex Paik  , is opening this Friday at Camel Art Space in Brooklyn. The show, curated by Lauren van Haaften-Schick "explores social and self-conscious motivations and anxieties surrounding art production and display. Through sincere humor, humility and coy absurdity, these artists confront what critic Jan Verwoert has termed "the pressure to perform," the expectation that artists and cultural producers present only absolute, correct assertions with the "genius-like" promise of positive results. In contrast, these works offer open-ended proposals or temporary conclusions, rendering suspect the desire and criteria for defining success or failure."

The opening reception is Friday, May 13th from 6-9pm. The show is up until June 13th.
