press release

Zeitgeist IV, represents a critique of current curatorial practices that focus not on the artwork and intent of the artists themselves but on interpreting the work for the audience. Artists were given a specific category to make work to and the curators provided a lengthy and overwrought critique of the work based on current curatorial practice without benefit of reviewing the actual work. The viewer was then left to enjoy and make up her/his mind about the work without interference given the disconnect between the art and the words to describe it. Sixteen visual artists participated in the exhibition.
