  • Barb Smith

    Barb Smith

    New York, NY, United States, b. 1979
    Barb Smith (b. 1979, Kokomo, Indiana) creates compositions using a diverse set of materials from recognizable objects, figurines, and tschotchkes through varied and unfinished processes which are then transformed from the banal and quotidian to the unforgettable. Their narrative is then further shifted as they are placed on shelves and platforms in a labyrinthine-like configuration. Smith lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She received her MFA in Sculpture at Bard College. Solo exhibitions include: Unexpired Time at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Mesa, AZ and Apperception at Purdue University. She was recently a part of the Queens International exhibition at the Queens Museum, NY. Smith was nominated with Ezra Tessler as one of the top ten presentations for Zona MACO in Artsy, 2016 and was recently included in the Artforum Critics’ Picks in the group exhibition, Everybody! Come Stand on the Altar! at PSST, Los Angeles. Smith was awarded fellowships by New York Foundation for the Arts in Sculpture (2011) and the Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture (2012). Her writing has been featured in The Shawangunk Review, No Dear Magazine, The Saint Lucy, and Mahkzin. She will be included in the upcoming In Practice exhibition at SculptureCenter in 2017.   http://www.barbarasmithart.com/

  • Gardar Eide Einarsson

    Gardar Eide Einarsson

    Oslo, Norge / Works and lives in Tokyo, Japan, b. 1976
    Gardar Eide Einarsson works with the notion of sub cultures and how to access these environments. He addresses this subject matter through diverse media as installation’s, paintings, sculptures etc. The notion of subversion and the undermining of the establishment is present, yet without being an aspiration of the artist, this obviously points to the classical notion of the artist’s position in society. All his works relate to the anti institutional and to the interference of concepts of freedom and the structures and organizations in society. The artist makes apparent the communicative strategies of inclusion and exclusion dominant in the culture we live in and the parallel systems existing on the boarder of the wellknown society. With a view on the institutions of society, Einarsson explores how they are negotiated and how ways are found to escape them and work with different degrees of belonging and non-belonging.
