Quint Contemporary Art is pleased to announce the opening of Double Up Double Up, which opens on Friday, June 11 and runs thru July 3, 2010. We are excited to include three artists new to the gallery Tavares Strachan, Eve Sussman & The Rufus Corporation, and Haim Steinbach. The exhibition will also feature works by Mel Bochner and Roy McMakin. There will be an opening reception on June 11, from 6 to 8 PM.
To recall what one has seen is to pull from memory, either consciously or subconsciously. One of the more basic fundamental devices of committing something to memory is repetition. In Double Up Double Up the viewer is invited to explore this principle of memory through works that deal with some form of repetition. The eclectic group of artists in this exhibition examine repetition in unique ways with the use of parallel universes (Stachan), word repetition (Bochner), framing devices (Steinbach), ontological complexities (McMakin), and memory and longing (Sussman). These forms of repetition reveal themselves in double images, duplication, and pairings.
