Metro Pictures Part I at Moore Space

From July 8th through July 31st, 2006Metro pictures refers to snapshots of the city. This two-part exhibition brings together 27 artists whose works define, interpret and/or reject the city, as well as describe how the city is navigated. This exhibition concept is by no means a tight thematic show, nor is it meant to be interpreted literally. In fact, the term “city” is proposed as a concept of space, whereby artists explore the psychologies, conflicts, resolutions, and states of mind that entail negotiating with surroundings, people and change. Several sub-themes include broad social issues shared by large populations; micro-stories and personal histories; interactive works that illustrate relationships; as well as topics that engage political and philosophical stands on environment, race and other social concerns. This collaborative exhibition includes works in a diversity of media including painting, sculpture, video, photography, performance and public art. This exhibition runs through July 31, 2006. The artists included in the exhibition are Jules de Balincourt, Isaac Diggs, Brock Enright, Kota Ezawa, Justin Faunce, Kianga Ford, Adler Guerrier, Quisqueya HenrÌquez, Jonathan Hern·ndez, Richard Jackson, Marisa Jahn and Steve Shada, Nikki Lee, Susan Lee-Chun, Helen Levitt, Beatriz Monteavaro, Lucy Orta, Damian Ortega, Sven Pahlssen, Chemi Rosado-Seijo, George Sanchez-Calderon, Reena Spaulings, Henry Taylor, Ryan Trecartin, Hank Willis Thomas with Kambui Olujimi and Ryan Alexiev and Michael Vasquez.
