GROUP SHOW / VNO-NYC
DECEMBER 14, 2017 - JANUARY 4, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14, 6-9 PM
GALLERY HOURS: WED-SAT, 12-6 PM
Sla307 Art Space is pleased to announce a group exhibition entitled VNO-NYC on display from December 14, 2017 to January 4, 2018. Participating artists are either Vilnius based or New York-based. Sharing a unique microcosm of Lithuanian heritage their existence in the contemporary art vernacular absolves either party from marginalization yet questions their place in it. This exhibition is an exchange that innately explores the question surrounding geography and making. In a world moving towards globalization, and artists becoming even more fluid, complexities of identity shift and reform multiplying new platforms for discourse. Works range in mediums and include paintings, video art, drawings multimedia, photography, metals, and glass.
Sla307 will act as a cultural bridge between two countries and two cities - Lithuania and the US, New York, and Vilnius. The poster for this show refers to the heraldry of both countries: stars on a blue background signify the number of artists in the exhibition, while also reminiscent of the stars of the US flag. The colors of the Lithuanian flag are presented in the form of stripes that mark a navy blue background - a poetic reference to crossing the Atlantic Ocean. At the same time, they act as symbolic markers for distance, cultural legacy, memory, emigration, and nostalgia.
