Semi Autonomous Bodies

September 6 – October 13, 2019

RECEPTION: Friday, September 13, 6 – 9 pm

Curated by Ian Cofre

SEMI AUTONOMOUS BODIES assembles the work of five artists who are both bound and unbound by the experiences that brought them together in art and education at different times over the last three decades. Spencer Hinson was a student and project assistant of Tom McGrath, who was a student of Lydia Dona, who was a student of Ron Gorchov, whose long-time studio assistant is Olga Sophie Kauppinen. Rejecting the idea of the master-student dynamic, its Oedipal or kill-your-idols upending, the atelier model, “From the school of…,” “In the style of…,” this exhibition focuses on a network of critical feedback and dialogue to build a closed circuit with examples of each artist’s most recent production.
