The Booklyn Art Gallery in Brooklyn is pleased to present INPUT OUTPUT, featuring artwork and personal collections of Alexander Heir, Jess Poplawski, Keith Pavia, Katie Plassche and Victor Giannini. This exhibition focuses on five artists, their personal collections and the work it inspires. IO features artwork exhibited alongside a wide range of totems and amassed ephemera including but not limited to: photographs, bones, leaflets, masks, studded jackets, flags, action figures, instructional manuals, plants, and curio cabinets. Exhibiting objects from their space alongside finished artwork illustrates the process of pulling inspiration from the world and transforming it into a unique language.
Paralleling one’s artwork, personal collections convey insight into the artists’ process, aesthetic taste, memories, history and technique. Offering objects from their studios provide an intimate view unique to each artist in their workspace. The impulse to collect, arrange and display resembles and becomes the process of composing elements into a new work of art. The collections inform their art and create a dialogue between the input of source material and the resulting creation.
INPUT OUTPUT is the sixth in a series of group exhibitions dedicated to providing self-publishing artists, who generally share their work through zines and other printed matter, with a platform for exhibition, experimentation and exploration outside of the printed format.
Artwork and editions from past and current shows are now available online at www.booklynartgallery.bigcartel.com.
Gallery Open Fridays 12 - 5pm, and by appointment.
