The Edge of Art
The Edge of Art: New York State Artist Series
January 30 - April 4, 2010
For the past 34 years, the Everson has featured Central New York Artists in the Everson Biennial, a juried exhibition traditionally featuring about fifty artists in one group show. This year, the Everson proudly introduces The Edge of Art, a series of contemporary art exhibitions showcasing the work of various artists living in New York State, particularly in the Central New York Region. The new format presents small-scale focused exhibitions and site-specific installations of new work.
The exhibitions will take place in the Robineau Gallery on the main level of the Everson. The collaborative pieces and site-specific installations will be presented in auxiliary galleries spaces throughout the Museum, including the Rosamond Gifford Sculpture Court and the Mather Court, both located on the lower level.
As part of the series beginning this January, Wishing Tree by Tash Taskale will be on view on the exterior podium of the Museum by the main entrance. Additionally, artist Jen Pepper will be creating a site-specific installation titled that which can not be held, based on Tautologos, a solo exhibition she first had in 2008. These works explore narrative language and culture though creatively using unexpected materials and space.
