Artist Walkthrough and Discussion: THEMODELINGAGENCY: TEKTITE –reflux
Artists and collaborators Nick Herman and Christopher James will guide viewers through their current exhibition, THEMODELINGAGENCY: TEKTITE –reflux. The walkthrough will be followed by an informal discussion led by the artists. Conflating experimental art with scientific method, the drawings, paintings, sculptures, and videos on view utilize the environment of the lab and strategies familiar to field work to produce alternative results to an existing body of scientific research. The objects and images (re)frame the oppositional relationship between utility and art, the objective and subjective, and aesthetics and knowledge. The exhibition is on view in the Armory’s Mezzanine Galleries through September 11, 2016.
