*LEGACY*
KNOCKDOWN CENTER, 52-19 Flushing Avenue, Maspeth, NY 11378, USA
7.11–30.11.2014, curated by Constantin Hartenstein

The works in this exhibition explore the ways in which a creative pursuit is inscribed and inherited throughout an artistic life. Emblematic of diverse processes and intentions, the works allude to one another in subtle and overt ways and serve as a non-verbal correlative to collected video stories presented amidst the installation. By portraying similarities and differences in styles and techniques of an artist and their artist parent, the pieces create a framework for examining the creative process as a life-long commitment that transcends the expectations of profession and audience. What strategies are artists using to sustain a consistent and meaningful lifelong relationship with their work and in what ways could relatives participate directly in the creation of an art piece?
The exhibition is accompanied by the publication of the catalogue LEGACY
available at the opening and throughout the length of the exhibition.
