I headed out to the Bowery to see “Suddenly, There: Discovery of the Find” at Garis & Hahn Gallery this past Tuesday. The incessant drizzle of rain, propelled me, and then suddenly, I was there. Art greeted me as I walked over the floor of the gallery. Careful not to step on artist/curator, Tamas Veszi’s video art piece that graced the planked floors, the journey to discovery was on! A full house of art patrons moved from one art piece to the next – enjoying the creative process displayed.
As the press release states, the show focuses on the find, surreptitiously through the flow of the creative process. Co curators, Eileen Jeng and Tamas Veszi amassed a group of 21 New York based artists, that discovered the “find” through diversions, distractions and deviations, to in turn, create paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, and videos to delight the sea of art aficionados.
The show continues through January 11, 2013 – and on December 18 from 7 – 8 pm, artist, András Böröcz will perform “11 Grapefruits 2”, a conceptual work that introduces the fruit into his repertoire of ordinary, round sculptural objects and includes a new video. Also, a foldout brochure with descriptions of the works and processes will be published for the occasion of this exhibition.
