FIRST WE TAKE MANHATTAN
WORKS SELCTED BY ISAAC ADEN + JOSEPH AYERS
May 5th - June 20th, 2016
6-9 pm, May 5th
Ethan Cohen is pleased to announce: First We Take Manhattan, a group exhibition of artists selected by Isaac Aden as a continuation of his solo exhibition I Like America.
Reflecting the curatorial aspect of Aden’s practice and, concurrent with the exhibition I Like America, Aden organized First We Take Manhattan; is based on the internationalist agenda of Leonard Cohen. By conflating the predetermined roles of “artist” and “curator” Aden questions the limits of both. Rather than looking to overarching aesthetic or theoretical relationships, the selection process has been based on individual relationships between each work on a one to one basis, creating a thread, which makes connections both cognitive and sensorial.
Participating artists include:
Jeffrey Spencer Hargrave
Gabriel J. Shuldiner
