All or Nothing
October 15 – November 10, 2010
All or Nothing explores the extremes of compositional and conceptual possibilities, while intentionally leaving out the middle. The images and objects curated into this exhibit helps us understand pictorial extremism: full or empty, ornate versus plain, horror vacui in opposition of austerity. In reflection of so many bifurcated approaches to contemporary thinking, these works present a suite of formalist explorations of the poles and their antipodes. By adopting clinical posture to these explorations, All or Nothing provides a neutral forum for the cacophony of these radical positions. Curated by Kjellgren Alkire and Luke Aleckson, the exhibit presents work from young contemporary artists along with historical heros from the late 20th century.
