Always the Young Strangers
May 19 – July 9, 2011
Opening: Thursday, May 19, 6 - 8 pm
Higher Pictures presents Always the Young Strangers, an exhibition of 17 young artists.
The exhibition is modeled after and takes its name from a show curated by Edward
Steichen at the Museum of Modern Art in 1953.
The work in our show is cohesive, chaotic and expansive. The artists are highly tuned-in,
producing work that vaporizes the traditional 20th century approach to medium and style.
For the artist today, these have entered the hyper-real – they leave us only with references
to medium and style.
Aided by technologies beyond the camera, their art discloses a hybridized world made by
hand. Collectively this work feels and speaks of individuality and possibility.
