Opening: June 24, 7-9pm
Artist’s panel discussion: June 25, 7-9pm
Here are samples of work from each artist. Please note: these are representative and the work in the show may be different.
False Dichotomy is, at least right now, an invitational pop-up being held June 24-26th at the Gowanus Studio Space. The exhibition centers on fine art printmaking that intersects with, depends upon, and even conquers high technology. Invited artists use data, alternate processes, wearables, performance, and other technologies to produce multiples, performances, texts, and other sorts of editions. The curator intends to help the show mutate and appear in other venues, eventually culminating the effort into a book and other forms of lasting documentation.

This show was curated by GSS member Libby Clarke, an artist, designer, and educator based in Brooklyn, New York. She created the show in an attempt to engender discussion of the issues that arise as printmaking encounters technology, no matter the era.
