FINDING OUR NEW FORT

October 20 - December, 2012

 

 

FINDING OUR NEW FORT

THE JEROME A. COHEN AND JOAN LEBOLD COHEN ART CENTER

BEACON, NEW YORK

OPENING OCTOBER 20, 2012, 6-8 PM

 

ETHAN COHEN PROJECTS presents Finding Our New Fort, an exhibition of artwork by the artists of The KuBe Collective, curated by Isaac Aden and Joseph Ayers.

 

The exhibition brings together ten artists from the newly formed group, The KuBe Collective, at Ethan Cohen’s Kunsthalle Beacon (KuBe). Finding Our New Fort does not refer to a particular subject matter; rather it aims to be a reflection of the artists who work in one building, under one roof, collectively. The work is a sampling that varies in subject and media.

 

The title of the show comes from Stephen Dickens’s painting, Finding Our New Fort Near Schussler Park. The work depicts remnants of an industrial civilization: obsolete factory buildings and outdated structures, a reflection of the buildings and structures in Beacon that are reinvented to shelter and support the arts in the community.
