Schema Projects, in collaboration with Brooklyn Collage Collective, is proud to present Lorem ipsum, a group exhibition of 10 emerging artists, working and living in Brooklyn.

Lorem ipsum refers to the ubiquitous filler text used in publishing and graphic design as a placeholder for other content. Once belonging to a larger text by Cicero, this meaningless string of Latin words is now iconic and recognizable in its own right. Decontextualized, cut-up and re-appropriated, the phenomenon of Lorem ipsum is analogous to the strategies and elements of collage utilized by the artists in this show.

Exhibiting artists include:

Lizzie Gill, Claire Lachow, Morgan Lappin, Jon Legere, Miguel Libarnes, Kieran Madden, Elise Margolis, Jay Riggio, Jacqueline Silberbush & Richard Vergez.

October 30 – November 2, 2014 

Opening Reception: Thursday, October 30th – 6–9 pm
