Tales from the Crate Room – curated by E. V. Day
“Day has imagined The Crate Room at the Bunker Art Space as a salon where the artworks are in various forms of undress, resting temporarily, like backstage players awaiting their next big scene. With their box tops removed, in this casual environment, new relationships are formed that otherwise might not have occurred in the capacious formality of a bright white gallery.”
Her is Here – curated by Eric Shiner, artistic director, White Cube — NYC.
“In this show, I selected works by woman artists in the collection with the basic notion of structure at the core of each work … The cacophony of structures and critical responses to structure represented here, I hope are the new normal, filled with power and loaded to constantly erode the status quo.”
