DANA HOEY: Miss Tessa 1, 2015, archival inkjet print, 17 x 22’, ed. 3.
Works by Pati Hill will be featured in the upcoming exhibition, Repeat Pressure Until, which opens Saturday, May 21, with a reception 6-9 p.m. at the artist-run gallery Ortega y Gasset Projects in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Curated by Sheilah Wilson, Repeat Pressure Until is “a material investigation into the spaces between the recognizable and the unknown:”
Artists in the show suggest ways for us to live inside the known world, while subverting these knowns through the act of placing pressure. This exertion of energy can create new forms and functions out of recognizable tropes and materials. Artists use photography, painting, drawing, video, and sculpture as tactics towards newly imagined versions of that which we know.
Wilson contacted Arcadia University Art Gallery after reading Meredith Sellers’ review of Pati Hill: Photocopier in Hyperallergic.
Repeat Pressure Until will be on view through June 19 on Saturdays and Sundays, 1-6 p.m., and by appointment. Read more.
