Opening Reception: July 14th, 7 pm – 11 pm Exhibition Dates: July 15, 21, 22, 6 pm – 9 pm In this exploration of her biographical links to Jamaica, Lehna Martine Huie addresses assumptions stemming from tourism and ways of “tasting” the island. She combines a series of multidisciplinary artistic approaches that will activate the five senses in order to reflect on the Jamaican-American experience in 2012.
Current Model Like New uses the car dealership – a signifier of class divisions, commodity fetishism, and globalization – as its impetus. Artists Daniel Keller, Katja Novitskova, Jon Rafman, and Amalia Ulman will create new works, which will manifest as two vehicles and travel to new contexts throughout the exhibition.
Curated by Loney Abrams, Current Model Like New is part of Flux Factory’s 2013 exhibition season, and is made possible, in part, by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, and by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
