Alum Dana Stirling featured in Aint Bad with her Dead Sea project.
"In this body of work, Stirling does not try to recreate the park, or resurrect it, but document a place that so many people had strong feeling towards, as children, and try and understand that glorious period that she herself had never got to experience."
In Addition, Stirling will be participating in a group exhibition at Radiator Gallery entitled Works: Reflections on Failure curated by Osman Can Yerebakan.
Offering a platform to survey the relationship between the artist, the artwork and the audience; failure suggests a study on the artistic drive, contextual meaning, and viewer expectation. Inspired by the late artist and author Édouard Levé’s book Works, in which he gathered more than five-hundred artistic ideas he aimed to bring into fruition, the exhibition scrutinizes the ambiguous border separating success from downfall. Levé’s candid devotion for creativity—leading to such accumulation of ideas that eventually failed to be executed—projects an inquisitive mind’s strive for achievement, as well as his bold undertaking of potential failures.
Opening reception on September 16th, 2016 between 6:00-9:00PM.
The exhibition will remain on view through November 12, 2016. Radiator Gallery is located on 10-61 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11106. The gallery hours are Friday and Sunday 1-6 PM or anytime by appointment.
