The New Intimists Oct. 29th - Dec. 11th, 2010 Opening Reception: Friday, Oct. 29th, 7-9 PM Press Preview 6-7 PM The New Intimists, a group exhibition curated by Samantha Friedman, features artists: Amy Lincoln, Günter Puller, Heejung Cho, Janell Olah, Karen Tam, Mark Epstein, and Tamara Thomsen. The New Intimists is an excitingly soft-spoken exhibition curated by Samantha Friedman, proving that two-dimentional work remains powerful. These artists do not only attempt to lift their masks and show some sort of truer self, but rather draw the viewer in with the intimacy of their work. By documenting domestic spaces ? whether personal, historical, or constructed ? we see a vision of life unavailable on any website. From damask wallpaper to plaid bedspreads, these artists bring the viewers back down to earth, inviting us to engage their personal space. The New Intimists is a NURTUREart Emerging Curators? Program Collaboration. Learn more about all of our programs and opportunities for emerging artists and curators at www.nurtureart.org.
