Re-Creation Exhibition Opening

Ogilvy & Mather presents Re-Creation, a group exhibition
Thursday, January 28th-March 30, 2010
Opening Reception: January 28th from 5-8 PM

This exhibition is open to public 6-8 PM.

address: 636 11th Avenue, 8th-11th floor, New York, NY

Re-Creation features the work of 12 internationally acclaimed and emerging artists from Canada, Israel, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and the United States. All of the artists create paintings, objects and installations made of recycled manufactured materials that once had functional purpose in our daily lives.  

The exhibition focuses on the internal dialogue between the artist and the medium in which their creation challenges their very existence — what we all perceive as “art”. The exhibition also examines the ways in which the artist recreates everyday objects and offers us a different point of view.  We all look, assess and give meaning to tangible and intangible materials differently. 

The exhibition features works by local artists including Thomas Beale, Miriam Cabessa, Jordan Eagles, Luke DuBois and Mark Napier and internationally recognized artists Long Bin Chen, Midori Harima, Young Ho Ji, Yael Kanarek, HyunJu Park, Björn Schülke and Julie Tremblay.   

Re-Creation is made possible by Bitforms Gallery, Gana Art Gallery, Causey Contemporary, Craig Scott Gallery and Frederieke Taylor Gallery with additional support from private collectors who have generously consigned artwork from their collections.
