Images from First Truth exhibition at Camel Art Space I co-curated with Sara Jones.
February 10-March 11, 2012: First Truth, Camel Art Space, Brooklyn, NY:
Opening Reception: February 10, 6-9 pm.
The artist who sets out to examine or establish a truth often runs into the bigger truth that came before it: that what one wants to accomplish may be fleeting and possibly unaccomplishable, or that what one creates will transform into an unforeseen thing between the time it is conceived and the time it is completed. This first truth takes the form of gaps and inconsistencies that erupt when attempting to tell a story, remember a vision, or attempt to follow a rule, and it is fueled by unreliable memories, unraveled experiences, and inexplicable imprecisions. It can be fought against, accepted, ignored, or even embraced, but the first truth — which can also be called the first anomaly or the first disappointment — emerges through the work whether it is intended or not. The artists in this exhibition intend and do not intend, but nevertheless communicate this first truth in a variety of ways.
Artists: Siobhan McBride, Janelle Iglesias, Megan Hays, Danielle Mysiliwiec, Gina Beavers, Sara Hubbs and Sara Jones
