Artist talk and public reception in celebration of the opening of un/mute, an international group exhibition of collaborative works by 28 artists across multiple disciplines.
6–7pm: Artist talk, moderated by Romanian Cultural Institute Director Dorian Branea, featuring several artists of un/mute and co-curator Daina Mattis.
7–9 pm: Public reception.
On view at the Austrian Cultural Forum New York and Undercurrent, the exhibition is the culmination of an 18-month-long project that was launched in 2020 to provide European and NYC-based artists an opportunity for critical exchange and collaboration during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
un/mute is the physical manifestation of online conversations among strangers who became collaborators. What began as abstract, ephemeral and digital are now 14 tactile, analog and concrete artworks presented across two locations. The artists confronted the parameters imposed by the lockdowns and each team found creative solutions that we might all learn from. The common thread that runs through the sculptures, installations, films, drawings, photographs and performances is the importance of language.
