Open call 2018-19 winners for NYC

291 Church Street
New York, NY 10013

apexart is pleased to announce the three exhibitions selected for its open call for group exhibitions in NYC. The following selections will be presented at apexart - nyc as part of the 2018-19 exhibition season. Exact dates to be announced online soon.

Evelyn Owen (New York City, United States):
Tracing Obsolescence explores the material and psychic residues of global large-scale manufacturing and extraction that haunt the post-industrial subconscious. Through prints, video, and installation, it draws out obscured links between industry and contemporary environmental, socio-economic, and geopolitical crises.

Alexandra Stock (Cairo, Egypt):
Art in Custody presents artworks defaced or destroyed and documentation of objects altogether lost at the hands of customs officers in the Middle East. The exhibition creates a safe space for objects damaged either through deliberate force or passive negligence as they have moved across borders, examining the consequences of overzealous control due to misunderstanding or abuse in a regional climate of political paranoia.

Justin Tyler Tate (Cape Coral, Florida, United States):
Peer2Pickle takes on the global problem of food waste and consequent greenhouse gas increases by designing a workshop and factory for transforming fresh local produce into extended shelf-life goods. In light of the absence of governmental and corporate incentives to address the issue, the project follows an open-source model as it generates its own web-based archive of recipes and strategies.
