Gazelle Lost in Watts
International Studio & Curatorial Program
1040 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn, New York
April 21 – May 19, 2017
The International Studio & Curatorial Program announces Gazelle Lost in Watts, an exhibition in ISCP’s Project Space, curated by Pat Elifritz. Featuring works by past ISCP residents Julie Béna and Megan Francis Sullivan, current ISCP Ground Floor resident Raul Valverde, and poet Harmony Holiday, the exhibition addresses the competing and entangled timescales of archival research. The curator has asked the four participating artists to reflect on their past work, in and beyond the studio, and to respond to a literary piece grounded in these issues. With a shared point of departure, the works in this exhibition consider how every unique perspective and starting point shapes the way history is told. Gazelle Lost in Watts is organized around the following poem of the same name by Harmony Holiday.
