Opening Reception: Saturday, February 11, 7-10 pm
Art is a gift. This winter the 20 artists of Dona Nobis have probed the gift dimension of the work of art---the idea that seems to come from somewhere beyond the artist, the value of the work that escapes the valuation of the market, the communities art builds through viewership and circulation, and the world of exchange between artists themselves. These works count the uncountable boon, that work in the space between creation and charity, that look for no return but spirit. We seek to build the thing with no name.
On February 11, Concrete Utopia opens its winter group show Dona Nobis, and exhibition that features paintings, sculpture, electronic installation, and photography from:
John Krauss, David Brooks, Alexis Neider, Bill Liebeskind, Shana Moulton, Grayson Cox, Jeremy Sheaffer, Mara Sprafkin, Lane Sell, Paloma Crousillat, Emily Weiner, Nancy Woods, Jacqui LeBoutillier, Jesse Weiss, Theresa Himmer, Nate Flagg, Allison Halff, Erich Erving, Becky Hersch, Gabriela Vainsencher
Participating artists have spent time in each other's working environments to produce examinations of one another's work, published in our accompanying catalogue.
