Does the Angle Between Two Walls Have a Happy Ending?
Federica Schiavo Gallery, Rome Italy
Curated by Ishmael Randall Weeks
April 30 – June 10 2010
[Excerpt from exhibition text] “‘Does the angle between two walls have a happy ending?’ brings together ten artists whose work critically and conceptually repositions and re-contextualizes formal histories of art, architecture and design in order to highlight intersections between the political, the poetic and the aesthetic. The title is taken from an advert placed by JG Ballard in Ambit, the legendary magazine he helped to edit in the 1960’s, which blazed it’s own unique and often subversive trail through art, poetry and social commentary. The project is intended as a reflection on the urban landscape, its architecture and typography – within the legacy of modernism and its imprint on post-industrial production – as a contention and/or attraction that delineates actions and positions of inclusion and exclusion.”
Artists: DIANA AL-HADID, ALEXANDER APOSTOL, SALVATORE ARANCIO, ALEXANDRE ARRECHEA, ARMANDO ANDRADE TUDELA, TIM HYDE, ANDRE KOMATSU, NICOLA LOPEZ, ISHMAEL RANDALL-WEEKS, ANDREA SALA.
