Reception Nov 5th 4-7pm | opens noon
Oolong Gallery is pleased to present our third and final group show of the six month launch starting last June. 𝙍𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙈𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙣𝙨 appropriates the historic 1962 poetry book by John Ashbery not only for its brilliant cover by Michael Peters, but also to emphasize poetic boldness, nature, and lines running through the show. Oolong has launched with a range of art mediums, styles, and content but puts the non-linear reception to art first over politic and market values. What better form to shine light on than contemporary art photography itself, universally discounted as secondary work to painting (but don’t miss Tillmans at MOMA rn!). 𝙍𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙈𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙣𝙨 is essentially an earth inspired photo and sculpture show, with some masterful digressions into relief work, collage, video, and an addendum of smaller paintings from southern Chile near Patagonia.
